New Oscar winner Natalie Portman is the face of Christian Dior‘s Miss Dior Cherie fragrance. The top fashion house’s chief designer John Galliano recently went on an anti-Semitic rant, and the Isreali-born actress said a mouthful on the incident:

“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.”

There’s no word on whether her contract with Dior has been affected.
