Actress Natalie Portman isn't a good role model, possible presidential candidate Mike Huckabee thinks, Us Weekly reported.

The former Arkansas governor attacked Portman, who is engaged to ballet choreographer Benjamin Millepied, the father of her unborn child, for deciding to become an unwed mother.

In accepting the best actress prize at last Sunday's Academy Awards show for her portrayal of a lesbian ballerina in Director Darren Aronofsky's much heralded thriller Black Swan, Portman thanked her fiance for “giving [her] the best role of [her] life.”

“People see a Natalie Portman who boasts, 'We're not married but we're having these children and they're doing just fine,'” Huckabee said Thursday on The Michael Medved Show.

“I think it gives a distorted image. It's unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out-of-wedlock children. Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can't get a job, and if it weren't for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. And that's the story that we're not seeing.”

Huckabee previously supported 16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears' decision to keep her baby.
