Natalie Portman Eats — She Swears!
“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 [my character] Nina does. I’m the opposite—when I’m hungry, I eat, and I always make sure I’m eating something delicious.”
—Natalie Portman, brand new Golden Globe nominee for her role in “Black Swan” in which she dropped 20 pounds from her already petite frame to play a prima ballerina, assures Vogue she does not share her character’s unhealthy eating disorders. That’s great, but as much as vegan Portman says she likes joy, she can’t be experiencing it to the maximum if she’s not allowing herself some cheese now and then. It’s what makes the world go ’round!
