Natalie Accused Of Popularising Premarital Pregnancy
The 29-year-old who won the Academy Award this year for her role as a troubled ballerina in the psychological thriller `Black Swan`, was criticised for being a wrong role model for young Americans, by the former Arkansas governor on a radio show, reported Contactmusic.
The Fox newshost said that the actress is portraying a distorted image of parenthood as unlike her many American single mothers cannot afford to raise a child alone. "One of the things that`s troubling is that people see a Natalie Portman or some other Hollywood starlet who boasts of, `Hey look, you know, we`re having children, we`re not married, but we`re having these children, and they`re doing just fine," Huckabee said on radio show hosted by Michael Medved.
"But there aren`t really a lot of single moms out there who are making millions of dollars every year for being in a movie. And I think it gives a distorted image that yes, not everybody hires nannies, and caretakers, and nurses. Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can`t get a job, and if it weren`t for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care."
The Israel born actress is believed to be expecting a boy and is due to give birth this summer.
