The already obvious difference between Kate Upton and lesser mortals such as Natalie Portman is now big enough to drive a truck through.

It has been clear for some time that Upton is the better actress—her performance in The Other Woman is leaps and bounds beyond Portman's finest work, which came in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.

Go ahead and compare the two for yourself.

Here's Upton:

And here's Portman:

Now it appears Upton is superior to Portman on matters of international relations as well.

Portman, who was born in Israel and is significantly older than Upton, decided on Thursday to take a stand against the Jewish state, refusing the prestigious Genesis Prize because she didn't want to travel to Israel to receive it. The foundation says it was told by a representative for Portman that, "Recent events in Israel have been extremely distressing to her and she does not feel comfortable participating in any public events in Israel."

Meanwhile, Upton, who was born in Michigan, was in Israel professing her "love" for the Promised Land.

Upton appears to have been in Israel for a secret project she says we'll find out about "soon enough."

You’ll find out soon enough 😉📸

She also found time to take in some of Israel's beauty during a camel ride by the Dead Sea.

Upton was likely treated very well by Israeli locals due to her great personality and obvious Shiksa appeal. She is also known to look fantastic in sand.

Portman responded to the Washington Free Beacon's Upton comparison with a statement on Friday afternoon to explain that her decision to refuse the Genesis Prize was not a protest of Israel but rather a protest of its prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"I chose not to attend because I did not want to appear as endorsing Benjamin Netanyahu, who was to be giving a speech at the ceremony," Portman said. "Like many Israelis and Jews around the world, I can be critical of the leadership in Israel without wanting to boycott the entire nation."

Portman's statement changes nothing. Upton remains superior.
