“I want every version of a woman and a man to be possible.

I want women and men to be able to be full-time parents or full-time working people or any combination of the two.

I want both to be able to do whatever they want sexually without being called names.

I want them to be allowed to be weak and strong and happy and sad — human, basically.


The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you’re making a “feminist” story, the woman kicks ass and wins. That’s not feminist, that’s macho. A movie about a weak, vulnerable woman can be feminist if it shows a real person that we can empathize with.”

–Natalie Portman to Elle Magazine
