"The kind of protest that gets rave reviews from the mainstream media for its bravery. Brave? No, not by a long shot. More like an actress acting the part of someone who cares. As so many of them do. 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, I am writing out of disgust. I just want her and other actresses to walk the walk. ... You 'A-listers' could change the world if you'd take a stand instead of being the problem. Yes, you, Natalie. You are the problem. Lip service is the problem. Fake support of other women is the problem."
Natalie Portman may have garnered headlines for her Oscar dress embroidered with the names of female directors snubbed for nominations, but Rose McGowan was clearly not one of those applauding - and with good reason, when you actually look at the track record of Portman's own production company.
