Mike Huckabee 'addresses Portman slam'

Natalie Portman at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon


Mike Huckabee has spoken out amidst the controversy surrounding comments he made about Natalie Portman's pregnancy.

The former Arkansas governor criticised the Black Swan actress during a radio interview earlier this week, saying that it was "not admirable" for she and fiancé Benjamin Millepied to be starting a family outside of wedlock.

However, speaking to Us Weekly, the politician insisted that his comments had been taken out of context and directed critics to his new book A Simple Government: Twelve Things We Really Need from Washington (And A Trillion That We Don't!) for more details on his political ideas.

"These people should read my book and they would know what I said instead of what some left-wing partisans are attempting to put forth," he explained.

" I do appreciate the attention to the book as it is sparking interest in it dramatically."
