Actress Natalie Portman sought to get involved amid last summer’s 50-day violent conflict between Hamas and Israel, organizing an “intimate” discussion at her home led by J Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami.

An email published by WikiLeaks last week shows the actress invited then-Sony Motion Pictures Group Chairwoman Amy Pascal to attend what Portman said she hoped would be a “productive” discussion.

Portman said she wanted to discuss the conflict and plan “possible next steps forward.”

It would appear that Pascal, however, did not share Portman’s sense of urgency. “Send regrets that I am on holidayBut [sic] Would have wanted to come,” she wrote back.
