Natalie Portman Breaks Silence After Declining to Accept Award in Israel

Natalie Portman Breaks Silence After Declining to Accept Award in Israel

Natalie Portman is speaking out following her decision to not travel to Israel to accept the Genesis Prize.

Following the 36-year-old actress’ decision, the award ceremony was cancelled and a representative for Natalie was quoted saying that “recent events in Israel have been extremely distressing to her” and that “she cannot in good conscience move forward with the ceremony.”

Now Natalie is speaking out to say that her decision has “mischaracterized by others.”

“I chose not to attend because I did not want to appear as endorsing Benjamin Netanyahu, who was to be giving a speech at the ceremony. By the same token, I am not part of the BDS movement and do not endorse it,” Natalie said, referring to the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions group that protests Israel over its treatment of Palestinians and the West Bank.

Natalie added that she now plans to donate to multiple Israeli charities that she will announce soon.
