Natalie Portman on the end of the Time's Up movement: 'It broke my heart'

Natalie Portman

The actress was one of the stars who most supported the Time's Up movement, founded on January 1, 2018, in the wake of the scandal involving producer Harvey Weinstein.

It really breaks my heart that Time's Up has dissipated like this." With these words Natalie Portman commented on the lack of luck of Time's Up, the organization in defense of victims of sexual harassment, founded on January 1, 2018, by several Hollywood celebrities in response to the Harvey Weinstein case and the Me Too movement. The actress got to talk about it in a recent interview with Indie Wire, admitting that the movement has dissipated due to some mistakes.

“I think a lot of people have made mistakes, but certain mistakes are fatal in activism,” Natalie Portman explained. “To demand the change you would like to see you have to be perfect, but perhaps recognizing our imperfections as human beings and understanding that people can do wrong things and good things at the same time and more, recognizing that there are more shades of gray can really allow us to progress“. The Thor: Love and Thunder actress, in closing, threw a small jab: “Requiring standards close to perfection is a perfect silencing mechanism because at that point everyone can say: 'Well, I'd better not say anything because I'm not perfect'".
