Natalie Portman responded to Rose McGowan and Twitter calling her Oscars Cape ‘Performative’

She says she’ll do better to employ more women in the future. Looks like Natalie finally caught wind of the backlash she received for her cape, because she responded, but not before Rose McGowan critiqued on Natalie’s actions on facebook, which you can read in full below:

Natalie released her statement through The Hollywood Reporter and acknowledged her fault in not having enough women employed, saying she’ll do better to hire more women in the future.

“I agree with Ms. McGowan that it is inaccurate to call me ‘brave’ for wearing a garment with women’s names on it. 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,” Natalie’s statement read.

“I have had the experience a few times of helping get female directors hired on projects which they were then forced out of because of the conditions they faced at work,” she added. “So I want to say, I have tried, and I will keep trying. While I have not yet been successful, I am hopeful that we are stepping into a new day.”

Not sure what else to say besides...seeing is believing!
