“Well, I want a different world for both my kids,” Portman said when asked about her support for the Time’s Up and MeToo movements. “I have a girl and a boy, and I want both of them to grow up with different ideas of opportunity, of behaviour, of the options opened to them because both boys and girls are limited by a system that expects very specific things from boys and from girls. Everyone’s options are limited because of this.”

 

The 37-year-old actress also explained how her definition of “abuse” has evolved over the years.

 

“It was amazing how many things that I didn’t even categorise as abusive behaviour,” she said, reports Mid-Day.

“I just thought it was (something that) made me really upset or made me uncomfortable. And now I think all of this reckoning has made me even be like, ‘Oh that wasn’t just a bad date, that was an abusive date’, ‘That wasn’t just an uncomfortable meeting, that was an abusive meeting’… And has made me look at things differently and hopefully it’ll prevent this kind of behaviour when people are, men and women, are more aware of that.”
