Israeli-born American actress Natalie Portman said on Wednesday that she feels very upset and disappointed with Benjamin Netanyahu's re-election to another term as Israeli prime minister.
In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Portman said "I'm very much against Netanyahu. I am very upset and disappointed that he was re-elected. I find him racist.
"However, I don't - what I want to make sure is, I don't want to use my platform [the wrong way]," she added.
The anti-Arab remarks made by Netanyahu during his election campaign have been heavily criticized worldwide, in which he warned that unless his supporters went out to vote, the right-wing party could lose because Arabs were heading to polling stations in large numbers. He later apologized for the comments.
Answering whether she feels nervous living in France after an attack on a Jewish kosher store, Portman said, "Yes, but I'd feel nervous being a black man in this country. I'd feel nervous being a Muslim in many places."
