Die Schauspielerin Natalie Portman, bekannt durch ihre Rollen unter anderem in „Leon – Der Profi“, „Star Wars“, „Cold Mountain“, „V – for Vendetta“ oder „My Blueberry Nights“ hat Hillary Clinton in Schutz genommen. Sie mag aber auch Obama und findet John McCain einen moralischen Mann.
In einem ELLE-Interview sagte sie unter anderem:
„You ask people why they don’t like her and it’s because her husband cheated on her! [Weil ihr Mann sie betrogen hat]
That was obviously not her choice. She’s so much more polished and experienced than anyone else.
Last night, a friend, a social worker in L.A. who works with underprivileged kids, was saying how these girls who have never been interested in politics before are so excited that a woman might be president. I mean, look how many women are in government…Hillary’s one of, what, [a handful of] female senators?
I also like Obama. I even like McCain. I disagree with his war stance–which is a really big deal–but I think he’s a very moral person.
I met him and Hillary on the same day, actually, when I went to Washington with Finca [a nonprofit that gives loans to businesswomen in developing countries].
Hillary was by far the smartest person I met that day. Just totally focused, and knew more about the issues than anyone else, and was so able to go from one thing to the other.“
Portmann übrigens unterstützt FINCA, eine Organisation, die mit Klein- und Kleinstkrediten Existenzgründungen in der Dritten Welt fördern will.
