Natalie Portman: Free The Children's New Ambassador!

Natalie Portman: Free The Children's New Ambassador!

Natalie Portman flashes a smile as she leaves her hotel on Thursday (April 5) in Paris, France.

The 30-year-old actress was recently named as an ambassador for the Free the Children project, an organization with which she has collaborated in the past.

“As a mother and the organization’s newest ambassador, I am grateful to Free the Children for giving me the opportunity to channel my passion and love of children into meaningful action that furthers the education and leadership of young women for years to come,” Natalie said in a statement (via E!). “I hope others join me in supporting this important cause.”

    @bs: You are talking about a person who is not a murderer or a serial killer and who even his own victim forgave him. Don’t change the subject of this thread please.

    really? Says:

    She doesn´t seem to know what she is supporting. I mean she supports the Israeli rapists, who kill Palestinian children since more than 100 years. And now she support other counties Children? From what?

    Natalie has always made clear that she is proud to be an Israeli like the all Israelis are. They think they are the only GOD people and if some one says anything bad about them, they will kill them. Some years ago I went to Australia traveling and I met a lot of Israli young people trying to find a job or a place for a better life. As I went to Sydney they were scared from the arabs there as we went to Brisbane they were scrared from the German tourists. After such a long History Israel will always be hatred Country because they never leave the past behind.

    Natalie should know as a proud Israeli she isn´t legitimate to support anything else as the Israeli GOD loved people.

    Why isn’t BS’s comment relevant? Portman signed a petition to forgive Polanski who RAPED a THIRTEEN year old after DRUGGING her and plying her with ALCOHOL. Ms. Portman certainly did not care about this child. It doesn’t matter that as a grown up the child forgave Polanski–it is the fact that she supported someone who felt it was okay to drug and rape a THIRTEEN year old. So I think she is being a bit hypocritical here…

    opportunity to channel my passion and love of children into meaningful action

    Right Natalie.

    @tsquared: You are wrong. Check the news. Last year, he certainly apologized to his victim in September 2011.

    Why Says:


    Are you for real?
    So when a rapist appologizes after fleeing from justice everything is OK?

    She and all the others support him no matter what because they are opportunists who want to work for him and further their careers. They don’t give a damn about abused children.

    This charity work is nothing but for publicity.

    @Why: “This charity work is nothing but for publicity.”
    it’s disgusting how transparent it is

    Oh Natalie how about all those Palestinian Children in Gaza? Where is your ‘ Free the Children ‘ for the Palestinian children? Surely a CHILD who just happens to be Palestinian is not less an innocent child than any other child?

    She is such a clueless hypocrite. She is all smiles and soft and nice with that nosejob of hers when she’s got something to promote (or some award to campaign for) and right after that she’s a total *****, a liar and just plain fake. RETIRE, MISS HERSHLAG…WE DON’T BUY YOUR UNGRATEFUL RUBBISH ANY MORE.
