Here's How Natalie Portman Responded to 'Annihilation' Whitewashing Questions

Natalie Portman was requested concerning the allegations of whitewashing in her new film Annihilation.

It’s revealed within the second e-book within the “Annihilation” collection that Natalie‘s character is of Asian descent.

“Well, that does sound problematic, but I’m hearing it here first,” Natalie responded when requested by Yahoo.


“We need more representation of Asians on film, of Hispanics on film, of blacks on film, women and particularly women of color, Native Americans — I mean, we just don’t have enough representation,” Natalie continued. “And also these categories like ‘white’ and ‘nonwhite’ — they’re imagined classifications but have real-life consequences. … And I hope that begins to change, because I think everyone is becoming more conscious of it, which hopefully will make change.”

“It’s probably a valid criticism. I didn’t know that,” Jennifer Jason Leigh, Natalie‘s co-star, added.

Annihilation opens in theaters on February 23.
