Ricky Gervais Savagely Spoofs Spoiled Brat Feminist Natalie Portman

At the Oscars, Natalie Portman staged a "silent protest" by wearing a bespoke Christian Dior cape emblazoned with the names of Unfairly Overlooked! female directors.

Portman, 38, attended the awards show wearing a black and gold Dior dress with a cape embroidered with the names of the female directors who were snubbed by the Academy: Lorene Scafaria (“Hustlers”), Lulu Wang (“The Farewell”), Greta Gerwig (“Little Women”), Mati Diop (“Atlantics”), Marianne Heller (“A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”), Melina Matsoukas (“Queen & Slim”), Alma Har’el (“Honey Boy”) and Céline Sciamma (“Portrait of a Lady on Fire”).

Fellow spoiled-brat out-of-touch nutter Rose McGowan attacked Portman for... not "walking the walk" regarding female directors?

"I find Portman’s type of activism deeply offensive to those of us who actually do the work. I'm not writing this out of bitterness...

And this is not just about the money.

... I am writing out of disgust. I just want her and other actresses to walk the walk," McGowan said. "Natalie, you have worked with two female directors in your very long career- one of them was you. You have a production company that has hired exactly one female director- you."


But that's just normal Hollywood battiness and cattiness.

The real attack came from Ricky Gervais.


Gervais had previously tweeted, "I tried to warn them."

@rickygervais

I have nothing against the most famous people in the world using their privileged, global platform to tell the world what they believe. I even agree with most of it. I just tried to warn them that when they lecture everyday, hard working people, it has the opposite effect. Peace.
