Natalie Portman Shuts Down Disturbing Dating Rumors, Like The Queen That She Is

American musician Moby recently alleged in his memoir that he began a relationship with actress Natalie Portman when she was 20 years old. At the time he claims they had a relationship, he would have been 33. In an interview with Bazar, Portman confronts these rumors, saying she was barely 18 when she met Moby. She describes how the situation felt to her at the time.

"My recollection is a much older man being creepy with me when I just had graduated high school," Portman says.

Portman claims their "relationship" was no more than a few get-togethers.

"I was a fan and went to one of his shows when I had just graduated. When we met after the show, he said, "let's be friends." We only hung out a handful of times before I realized that this was an older man who was interested in me in a way that felt inappropriate," Portman says.

Moby took to Instagram to defend the statement made in his book about his past with Portman.

"I can't figure out why she would actively misrepresent the truth about our (albeit brief involvement," Moby says.

Moby asserts that the information is written in his book, "Then It Fell Apart," is accurate and that he has photographic evidence that the two had been in a relationship.

In an additional post made on the topic, Moby describes their relationship as "consensual" and innocent." This contrasts Portman's account of it being "creepy."

Whether or not their relationship was pleasant for both parties or not, it cannot be disputed that Moby did incorrectly state her age at the time they were allegedly together. Moby states Portman was 20 when they were together in 1999. Portman would have actually been turning 18 that summer, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Moby's information is not factual like he claims so it is unlikely he can be trusted detailing how the relationship went when he can't confirm important details like the ages of both parties involved. Why should the media believe they were together as he described when he refuses to admit he lied about her age?

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
