natalie portmanIs she vegetarian? Is she vegan? Get ready for some more “What’s Natalie Portman eating?!” news!

The LA Times recently interviewed the 28-year-old actress in a vegan restaurant in downtown Manhattan, (nibbling on a soy-cheese sandwich no less) and got the scoop that Natalie is once more vegan. There had been doubts this was the case in a recent interview she gave with Jake Gyllenhaal, but that’s all cast aside now, and we have author Jonathan Safran Foer to thank for it. Portman scored an early release of his upcoming non-fiction work Eating Animals and switched from vegetarian to vegan immediately after reading it. Here’s a brief description of the book:

Brilliantly synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, memoir and his own detective work, Eating Animals explores the many fictions we use to justify our eating habits-from folklore to pop culture to family traditions and national myth-and how such tales can lull us into a brutal forgetting.

You might remember Safran Foer for his incredible book (which was made into a movie starring Elijah Wood) titled Everything Is Illuminated.

Anyways, Portman reveals that as a result of the book, she plans on becoming much more involved with animal rights. “There are certain things you can have different opinions on, but then other things, like torturing animals, [are] just wrong,” she said.

We couldn’t have said it better. Check out the rest of the interview here or preorder “Eating Animals” here.
