Huckabee

Rips Natalie Portman

Over Pregnancy

3/4/2011 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Fox News host Mike Huckabee claims Oscar winner Natalie Portman is a bad role model for America -- all because she got knocked up before marriage. 

0304-huckabee-portman-bn-getty-01
Huckabee went on a radio show Monday and said, "One of the most troubling things is that people see a Natalie Portman or some other Hollywood starlet that boasts of, hey look, we're having children, we're not married, but we're having children and they're doing just fine."

Portman is engaged to her baby daddy -- co-star Benjamin Millepied.

Huckabee -- a Republican who could make a run for the White House -- added, "There aren't really a lot of single moms out there that are making millions of dollars each year by being in a movie"

"I think it gives a distorted image that 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 would not get healthcare."

So far, Portman has yet to respond.

Did Huckabee rant over Bristol Palin? Don't recall that he has said a thing about her lack of judgment in the legs spreading prior to marriage. Typical of the holier than thou attitude of this man!

Maybe he should get up Bristol Palin's ass and attack her! How selective this s***bag is in his judgment.

You may be a slimmer version of your former self, but you continue to live in your own glass house, Mike Huckabee!

People are so often confused thinking movie star life is real life. You don't see the christian or conservative values in just about anyone in Hollywood. Sports athletes are the same. The earn millions, blow it as quickly as it comes and then are out of luck and it's always someone elses fault.

Personal responsibility is key and just because you have made millions, isn't a reason to walk around saying have kids outside of marriage, it will work, just look at me. In the next photo you see this person in London, without their child for weeks at a time on a movie set while a nanny helps raise the child.

Celebrities are so wrapped up in themselves, they need to be a roll model for someone. But most of the time, they are the opposite. They are the people you should run away from. Good for Huckabee.

I'm rather liberal, but Huckabee indeed has a point.

There's a pervasive Hollywood "vogue" perspective that it's cool/acceptable to get knocked up, then subseuently deal with the "relations" of the mother or father.

I hate the radical right, but Hollywood is drunk on its own radical-left mentality of irresponsibility.

It's getting really old, and DOES NOT represent America. Affluent, middle, poor, or anything in between.

Mike Huckabee is an ass. Can't he think of some issues to address instead of going into the bedrooms of America? Who gets married or not, who has kids or not, who is a role model or not, is none of his concern. His concern is to get the country on track and help the PEOPLE. He shouldn't judge, he should serve. And of all the subjects he addresses it's Natalie Porman? Methinks he's got too much time on his hands. He needs to start thinking about the real issues. Like all those poor single mothers looking for JOBS.

Apparently you never heard Natalie's rap song. She never claimed to be a role model :P

Stick a fork in his presidency run, he's done.

Any interviewer could easily rip him apart by asking him if his stance on Natalie Portman equally applies to Bristol Palin. At that point, he'll either be revealed as a lying douche, or he will insult his base by critcising a Palin. He's done.
