Natalie Portman: A Vegetarian At Home And A Vegan When Out

Congrats to Natalie Portman for earning an Golden Globe nom for best actress in “Black Swan” this morning — but let’s turn our attention to her January 2011 interview for Vogue, shall we?

Turns out the 29-year-old may not be the clear-cut vegan she led us all to believe. From the article,

“A vegetarian at home and a vegan when out, she orders a thoroughly eccentric meal: field greens followed by a soft pretzel with mustard, and an elderflower spritzer.”

“I swear, I eat. I ate a bagel an hour ago. I consume my own weight in hummus every day. I cook a lot, and I even do vegan baking.”

“I like pleasure, I like joy. I’d never get to the point where I would starve or injure myself like Nina (her character in “Black Swan”) does. I’m the opposite—when I’m hungry, I eat, and I always make sure I’m eating something delicious. I’m tough on myself in terms of the standards I want to live up to, but that’s also part of my pleasure: knowing you are being your fullest self. Being your fullest self is a lot of work.”

I don’t know — sounds like Portman is more vegan than vegetarian; especially when it comes to what she’s wearing. But for the purists out there, a bit of vacillation equals instant denouncement. Maybe Vogue got the order mixed up (it’s obviously easier to eat vegetarian than vegan when out and about)? Thoughts? Rambles? Poetry? Weigh in below.

“Hero cow” becomes media darling to non-vegans everywhere

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.

Please stop attempting to express love through animal exploitation

While I’m a huge sucker for the sweet stuff, I can’t escape the seasonal dread of seeing lovers carelessly link up gestures of romance with animal exploitation.
