Natalie Portman and Veganism

The silver-screen starlet re-dedicates herself to veganism after reading Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals.

It was recently speculated that longtime veg-actress Natalie Portman had swapped veganism for vegetarianism when she admitted she loved dairy ice cream in a recent interview. This week, Portman shared that she's back to living a completely vegan lifestyle after reading Jonathan Safran Foer's upcoming nonfiction work, Eating Animals. Foer, who explores his own personal ethical dilemmas in the book, sat down recently with Larry King and Food Network personality Anthony Bourdain to discuss factory farming. The topics discussed on the Larry King Live show that night centered on the controversy surrounding The New York Times article that exposed the horrors of the meat industry.
