Natalie Portman: Unite for Syria, Stop Bloodshed

Natalie Portman: Unite for Syria, Stop Bloodshed

Natalie Portman is chic in a tan trench coat while arriving at Hotel Plaza Athenee on Tuesday (April 3) in Paris, France.

The 30-year-old actress recently voiced her concern for Syria by penning a handwritten note with a simple message.

“Unite for Syria. Stop one year of bloodshed. #Syria 15 March,” she wrote last month during the first anniversary of the country’s conflict.

Natalie was just one of a handful of celebs who pitched in to help draw attention to the situation.

“We hope they will help impress on the Syrian government and its few remaining supporters, including Russia, that the rest of the world will not turn a blind eye while mass atrocities are committed against the civilian population,” Philippe Bolopion, UN director at Human Rights Watch in New York, explained. “It was conceived as a show of solidarity to Syrian victims who must feel abandoned by the UN Security Council, whose hands have been tied by Russia and China.”

    deadpool Says:

    What about the PALESTINIANS blood being shed Ms. Portman?

    This is just her looking out for Israels interests. Al Asaad being gone they can expand their stolen territories into Syria. Portman doesn’t give a rats ASS about any of the arabs. Where was her voice when the Egyptians were being massacred? Or when the Israelis went into Gaza just this year or how about 2006 in Lebanon when Israel invaded Lebanons south and killed 1500 the majority of those killed being children?

    Jessica Rabbit Says:

    Oh please Natalie, She’s an ignorant zionist. Didn’t she write a scathing open letter in support of Israel during her Harvard years? She’s all for Israel’s stance against Palestine, but she’s all for helping Syria? Whatever.

    On another note, why is she posing so foolishly and candidly for the paparazzi? I’m under the impression that she despises them and so passionately yearns for her private life. I can’t deny that she doesn’t look amazing though. She’s a great actress to boot too.

    A Says:

    I don’t have any sympathy for Israeli jews or Arabs.
    Arabs are massacring the black African population in Sudan and Israelis are harassing their African immigrants and performed sterilization of Ethiopian women, this all in the 21st century so excuse me for not giving a damn when my own people are being slaughtered from BOTH sides.

    TightRope Says:

    @A: There is plenty racism in Arab countries but that doesn’t justify their oppression either. If you don’t have sympathy for Palestinians you are sick.

    Anon Says:

    Well how convenient. It is funny that the only revolution which is supported by the US (and its close allies) is the Syrian, while the rest whose dictators are US puppets never received any attention when they were killed in thousands.

    I don’t condone what is happening in Syria, it is horrible and atrocious but so were the other Arabic revolutions.

    Jennifer Says:

    I can smell the hypocrisy a thousand miles away! Natalie, as an Israeli, you should know that Syria’s biggest supporter in this “bloodshed” as you call it is… ISRAEL! They have made it clear that they do NOT want the Assad regime to crumble. Israel is just as bad as Russia and China who are supporters of the Syrian regime, and not the Syrian opposition, which is seen as the legitimate government of the Syrian people by the United Nations and 77 countries around the world. Oh, and don’t let me talk about the “bloodshed” in Palestine. Please go back to acting!

    Jewish Natalie Says:

    What a Zionist like Herschlag/portman needs to open her big fat mouth about Syria when Israel her beloved country kills Palestinian people daily.

    They occupy a land that belongs to Palestinians.

    Don’t forget that a Jew is Jew before anything else, before being American.
    Portman is no exception, she is a masked warrior of Israel.

    Anyone listening to this woman’s advice is an idiot. When you conduct your own personal life ethically for a few years you won’t seem like such a hypocrite home wrecking *****. Everyone was hoping you’d retire for good.

    clearly Natalie is playing us! since the Oscars ended she looked so pissed off being photographed..now that she’s getting another paycheck from Dior, she’s all smiles.because she does need that paycheck, she hasn’t worked for over a year..not sure how much her choreographer husband makes, but the way she’s all hip and happy; she looks desperate….i pity those who envy her..

    What happened to her face? Looks like she is wearing a mask. And it seems she feel uncomfortable. Like a little girl, wearing mom’s clothes in public.
