Last night Natalie attended the Nevada Women Vote 2012 Summit in Las Vegas. Natalie campaigned in support of President Obama at the first rally for what is being billed the “Romney-Ryan: Wrong for Women” Tour. Check out the photos from the event and read more about Natalie’s speech below.
When Natalie Portman took the stage at the Obama for America Nevada Women Vote Summit on Saturday, she realized this visit to Las Vegas was nothing like her previous trips.
“This was a more inspiring experience just to see how active all these women are in the community,” Portman said.
Portman gave the final speech to a crowd of more than 400 women, and a few men. She followed President Barack Obama political strategist Valerie Jarrett, Nevada Assemblywoman Irene Bustamante Adams and other campaign activists.
The last time Portman was in Las Vegas, she was in a food lover’s paradise. Two years ago she came as a guest judge on “America’s Top Chef.” Later, she sampled the abundance of gourmet meals the city had to offer. That opened her eyes to our food; this trip opened her eyes in a different way.
“I know how important this state is to the election, and it’s the least I can do for what the president has done for us and can do for us,” Portman said. “It was an honor and privilege to share the stage with these other incredible women too and be in a room full of women who are really active.”
Portman opened her speech to a standing ovation. She spoke for nearly 10 minutes about the work Obama has done for women and America. She touched on the death of Osama bin Laden, the Affordable Health Care Act and Obama’s efforts to support women’s rights.
“We are creating a future for our children, and I want them to see a president like President Obama in the office, who respects and loves women,” Portman said. “And who is all for creating an equal world for others and all of our children.”
Natalie attended the New York City Ballet`s 2012 Spring Gala performance in New York, May 10.

Natalie visited the Audrey Hepburn Children’s House on Friday (May 4) in Hackensack, New Jersey. She was joined by Audrey’s son Sean Ferrer for the event to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the location’s opening. Natalie serves as an honorary godmother and an advisory board member for the charity, which helps abused and neglected children.
Natalie took the stage in Washington, D.C. to speak during the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s 2012 Elie Wiesel National Tribute Dinner. The actress showed support for her Jewish faith by stepping up to the podium to honour this year’s tribute recipient, Aung San Suu Kyi, praising the non-violent activist’s work to rescue Burmese refugees. Natalie also addressed the need to continue educating younger generations of the genocide in an effort to stomp out hate across the world.
