The actress with dual Israeli and American nationalities, Natalie Portman, sent her apology for her mistake to Jessica Simpson.

In a recent interview, Natalie gave her opinions on the issue of the women's sexualization and mentioned Jessica Simpson as an example. This statement hurt the female singer’s reputation. Specifically, the new movie Vox Lux’s main actress recalled Jessica’s bikini cover shoots to mean that the mass media frequently show the women’s sexy images publicly.

In the interview, Natalie stated that as a teenager, she caught Jessica Simpson’s sexy picture on a magazine cover. In the photograph, Jessica wore a bathing suit and made a statement: “I’m a virgin.” These words made Natalie confused. She wondered if Jessica’s expression is “as a woman” or “as a girl,” she shared in the USA Today’s interview.

Later, Jessica responded to Portman’s statement via the social media and confided that she was upset about the actress’s comment.

In her post, the songstress wrote: “I was disappointed this morning when I read that I ‘confused’ you by wearing a bikini in a published photo taken of me when I was still a virgin in 1999.” She said when stepping into the showbiz and becoming “public figures,” the artists aren’t always absolutely control their images. The entertainment industry usually makes the attempts to “define” the artists and “box” them in. Besides, she “was taught to be myself” and respects the way “women express themselves.” Therefore, in the past or at present, she always believes that the women’s sexy appearance in swimsuits, as well as the pride in their body, don’t mean “having sex.”

The well-known singer also stated that she is always willing to be an example to all females. She wants to help them realize that the women have their own complete freedom to:

These decisions are at their discretion. Because of this viewpoint, she always respects the other females’ choices.

Additionally, Jessica also highly appreciated the contributions of the actress born in 1981 to women. Natalie positively attends Time's Up campaign as well as has several good activities in the protection for the women's rights. Thus, Jessica “encourages” Natalie “to do the same” as what she has done for women.

She just unintentionally shamed Jessica and sent her sincere apology to the singer for her mistake. Also, she asserted that “I have nothing but respect for your talent and your voice that you use to encourage and empower women all over the globe.”
