Natalie Portman Eats, She Swears
Dec 14, 2010 - by Amanda Gabriele
And I believe her! Being a vegan in this country is not easy, but Natalie Portman still had to defend her eating habits to the skeletons over at Vogue.
The Vogue cover girl had to go through an intense workout and training regimen six months before filming began for Black Swan. But she defends her current eating habits and says they're nothing like her character Nina's:
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.
Is that it? I ask.
"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. Id never get to the point where I would starve or injure myself like Nina does. Im the oppositewhen Im hungry, I eat, and I always make sure Im eating something delicious. Im tough on myself in terms of the standards I want to live up to, but thats also part of my pleasure: knowing you are being your fullest self. Being your fullest self is a lot of work.
I may actually buy Vogue this month because they chose such an admiral cover girl. Can't wait to read the interview in full.
