Steven Spielberg Reacts to Natalie Portman's All-Male Directing Shade Ahead of 'The Post' UK Premiere!

Steven Spielberg Reacts to Natalie Portman's All-Male Directing Shade Ahead of 'The Post' UK Premiere!

Meryl Streep keeps it chic and sophisticated while hitting the red carpet at the European premiere of her Golden Globe-nominated film The Post held at The Odeon Leicester Square on Tuesday (January 10) in London, England.

The 68-year-old actress was joined at the event by her co-star Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, as well as director Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw.

The evening before, Steven weighed in on Natalie Portman‘s viral moment from Sunday’s Golden Globes, where she took a shot at the lack of gender diversity in the Best Director category.

“There’s also a watershed happening right now, slowly, maybe not fast enough, for women directors,” Steven, 71, expressed (via ET) at the 2018 National Board of Review Awards Gala. “I mean you have [Wonder Woman director] Patty Jenkins. We have some amazing women that have come forward, you know Mudbound and Lady Bird. This is a pretty incredible year, and I think you’ll be seeing some nominations. I’m predicting at the Oscars this year for a woman director, if not several.”

FYI: Meryl is wearing an Alexander McQueen outfit, Alexandre Birman shoes, and Mr. Leight opticals.
