Portman has ‘100 stories’ of abuse
ACTRESS Natalie Portman is joining the ranks of women who've come forward with stories of sexual harassment.
While the Oscar-winning actress said she hasn't personally experienced any abuse, she did tell Porter magazine that she has been forced to deal with manipulative and harassing producers, reports the New York Post.
One time, a producer even invited her onto his private plane alone.
"It was just the two of us, and only one bed was made up. Nothing happened, I was not assaulted," Portman shared, via the Telegraph in the UK. "I did make a point of saying, 'This does not make me feel comfortable,' and that was respected. But that was super not OK, you know? That was really unacceptable and manipulative. I was scared."
Like many other actresses, Portman felt that certain behaviour from Hollywood bosses was just "part of the process."
"I went from thinking, 'I don't have a story' to 'Oh, wait, I have 100 stories,'" she recalled, "and I think a lot of people are having these reckonings with themselves."
