Actress Natalie Portman was admittedly upset when President-elect Donald Trump beat her choice of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but she has since found something to be happy about in the weeks after Election Day.

“One of the positive things that’s come out of this election is a lot of people being very activated to be positive influences in their communities and in their country,” Portman told The Hill after appearing at the D.C. premiere of her new movie, "Jackie." “And we should always be that way — but this is a moment where a lot of people are energized in a new way to make a difference themselves and to be active themselves, and I think that’s exciting.”

In the film, which opens Dec. 9, Portman plays former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy.

Before the election, the liberal actress had called a potential Trump presidency "catastrophic," but she told Vulture recently that the result has given her new energy to be active politically.
