Natalie Portman said that at the age of 13, after starring in her first film, she experienced ‘sexual terrorism’ from fans and the media that impacted the way she went about the rest of her career. Portman shared the traumatic experience Saturday while speaking to a crowd of thousands of women at the Los Angeles Women’s March. The Oscar-winning actress explained that she turned 12 on the set of her first film, ‘Leon: The Professional,’ in which she played a young girl who made friends with a hit man in hopes of avenging her parents’ murders. The French film attracted controversy for its moral ambiguity, with many viewing Portman’s character as a Lolita-esque figure and many were left uncomfortable with the relationship between her and the middle-aged killer, played by Jean Reno. Indeed, the movie’s writer and director, Luc Besson has admitted that in the initial draft script, the pair actually become lovers, but he changed his mind. When the movie was released a year later, she said she was excited to open her first fan letter. But inside the letter a man had written to her about a ‘rape fantasy’ he had about her.
