Natalie Portman has revealed that she is "shocked and disgusted" by John Galliano's behaviour in Paris last week. The Oscar winning actress has spoken out against the designer in the run up to the release of her Miss Dior Chérie ad campaign.

After a video of Galliano's anti-Semitic remarks was released, Portman shared her opinion of the Dior frontman in a statement last night. She said, "I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano's comments that surfaced today. In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful".

It has not been confirmed if Portman's statement will affect her contract with Dior, but she made her feelings pretty clear. Perhaps Dior will have to find another face for their fragrance. Let us know what you think of Natalie's comments below.
