By Bruce Haring. Natalie Portman has fired back at activist Rose McGowan , who blasted her for faux activism stemming from the gesture of wearing a cape at the Academy Awards featuring the names of snubbed female directors. No, not by a long shot. More like an actress acting the part of someone who cares. As so many of them do. Brave is a term I more strongly associate with actions like those of the women who have been testifying against Harvey Weinstein the last few weeks, under incredible pressure. The gift has been these incredible films. I hope that what was intended as a simple nod to them does not distract from their great achievements.

Natalie Portman termed 'hypocrite' after she makes a powerful statement with Dior dress at Oscars. Font Size Abc Small. Abc Medium. Abc Large.
The names, including Little Women's Greta Gerwig , The Farewell's Lulu Wang and Hustler's Lorene Scafaria, were to highlight the fact that no female directors were included in the nominations for that category this year. On Wednesday, McGowan - an activist who regularly rallies for women in the film industry and who came forward as a Harvey Weinstein accuser in - lambasted Portman in a strongly worded statement saying she finds her 'type of activism deeply offensive to those who actually do the work'. In a lengthy post on Facebook, McGowan hit back at people praising Portman's statement as 'brave' and criticised the Oscar-winning actor for allegedly working with only 'two female directors in your very long career - one of them was you. You have a production company that has hired exactly one female director - you'. Portman respond hours later, telling People that, firstly, she agreed with McGowan 'that it is inaccurate to call me "brave" for wearing a garment with women's names on it.
