Natalie Portman: 'I was deceived by a creepy producer'

Natalie Portman has been in the movie industry for a long time, and she has revealed that she has also experienced plenty of sexual harassment along with it. "I think, like, a year and a half ago, somebody said something to me about how I was 'a good role model for girls, ' and I had to go into the bathroom and sob because I felt like an imposter - I felt like, 'I can't believe somebody still feels that way after what happened.' It's so many different things to process when you've been violated like that". The onslaught of accusations began when several women came forward with stories of assault by now-disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

The actress said that she wasn't aware until recently how much of her experiences constituted harassment and sexism. "And then, on reflection, I was like, okay, definitely never been assaulted, definitely not, but I've had discrimination or harassment on nearly everything I've ever worked on in some way".

"And then, on reflection, I was like, okay, definitely never been assaulted, definitely not, but I've had discrimination or harassment on nearly everything I've ever worked on in some way", she said, according to the outlet.

One particular incident the actress recalled was on a plane with a producer.

She shared that an unnamed producer once invited her to join him for a private plane ride to their joint destination, and Portman simply assumed they would be accompanied by "a big group of people", but when she boarded the plane she discovered it was "just the two of us", and even worse, there was "one bed. made on the plane".

"And I think that's also got to be part of our conversation now: When you're defensive as a woman against being looked at that way, that you're like, "I don't want to" - what do we close off of ourselves or diminish in ourselves because we want to protect ourselves?" she asked.

In recent weeks, allegations of sexual assault and harassment against prominent actors, comedians, politicians and journalists have been seemingly nonstop. However, she clearly said that she wasn't harassed or sexually assaulted but she added that it was very comfortable.

While Natalie said the man "respected" her when she declined his advances, she described the situation as "unacceptable and manipulative".
