Natalie Portman found dressing for awards ceremonies as a woman 'oppressive'

Natalie Portman loves getting all dressed up for awards ceremonies since having children.



Natalie Portman used to find dressing up for awards ceremonies "oppressive".

Since having children, the 'Black Swan' star - who has Aleph, 12, and six-year-old Amalia with husband Benjamin Millepied - loves the chance to get out of her sweats and get glammed up.

However, the 42-year-old star used to feel like women got the short straw having to look their best whilst the men got to "roll out of bed" wear comfortable clothes.

Speaking on the 'SmartLess' podcast, she said: "You know, I used to think it was kind oppressive and like why do women have to spend all this time and discomfort and you know the men get to like roll out of bed and wear something they're warm in and like aren't, you know, sucking in their stomachs or whatever and now having kids I feel like it's pretty fun to like have people like make you feel good and go glam."
