This A+ list mostly movie actress hired a couple of people to threaten a reporter in a very vile way when the reporter wrote something critical of the actress.
This is another reason reporters of tabloids just kiss butt and keep their heads down and do as told by publicists.
Natalie Portman Calls Annihilation Whitewashing Accusations ‘Problematic’
Natalie Portman has responded to claims of whitewashing in her upcoming film Annihilation.
When asked about the controversy during an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Portman and her costar Jennifer Jason Leigh said they were unaware of the original race of their characters.
“Well, that does sound problematic, but I’m hearing it here first,” said Portman.
Jason Leigh also agreed, adding, “It’s probably a valid criticism. I didn’t know that.”
In the sequel novel to Jeff VanderMeer’s Annihilation (the book on which the film is based), Portman’s character Lena is described as having strong Asian heritage while Leigh’s Dr. Ventress is written as half-white, half-Native American.
Though Portman said she only became aware of her character’s race in the source material earlier this week, she acknowledged the problem of whitewashing in Hollywood. – Source
