It’s good to be a celebrity — and an animal-friendly one at that!

Natalie Portman recently became the new face of the Miss Dior Cherie campaign; but she wasn’t about to let her vegan convictions fall by the wayside for a paycheck.

She told WWD.com: “One of the things that’s been so nice is that Dior made all of the shoes for me with no animals and no leather or anything, because I don’t wear any leather…They re-made all my shoes so I can wear Dior shoes without taking lives.”

Back in Feb of 2008, Portman designed a line of vegan shoes for Té Casan; citing her involvement due to a lack of animal-friendly alternatives in the fashion world. Less than a year later, the collection was dropped — a victim of the financial crisis.

Perhaps Portman can convince Dior to make a few vegan-friendly shoes for consumers as well?
