While Hollywood actress Natalie Portman ditched her vegan ways during her pregnancy—opting to include some dairy products—the star now attributes her skin health to eating a vegan diet and staying hydrated. In a recent interview, Portman was asked how she keeps up with the minimal, no-make up style of French women (Portman and choreographer husband Benjamin Millepied now live in France), to which she responded, “I’m vegan, and I drink a lot of water.

Throughout the years, Portman has been an outspoken advocate for everything from sustainable fashion to fighting against air pollution.
