[i]Natalie Portman hasn’t eaten meat since she was nine years old. But it wasn’t until she read Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Eating Animals” in 2009 that she realized consuming dairy and eggs could harm animals too.
The book struck her so intensely that she instantly called up Foer and told him she thought the project would also work as a documentary. The writer and the actress had been friends for years, striking up a friendship after Portman — then a student at Harvard University — approached Foer after a Cambridge, Mass., book reading for his 2002 novel “Everything Is Illuminated.”

It took nearly a decade for the documentary, out June 22, to come to fruition, along the way picking up financial backing from Twitter co-founders Biz Stone and Ev Williams. Portman, now 37, eventually decided to serve as the film’s narrator, while both she and Foer, 41, share producing credits.

Natalie Portman’s backstage interview
When someone wins an Oscar, it is customary to go backstage and meet the accredited press. A number of questions are asked and the Oscar winner replies.

The following is Natalie Portman’s backstage interview with the press immediately after she won the Oscar as best actress.

Q. Back in Toronto I asked you if winning an Oscar was a crazy dream. Now that you got it right there, is it like that?


A. Yes, it feels very, very dreamlike right now. I don’t really know where I am.


Q. Would it be too crazy to think you might name your baby Oscar?


A. I think that’s probably definitely out of the question, yeah.


Q. I’m more nervous asking you a question than I was spending time in Iraq.


A. That’s sweet. I won’t do anything bad to you, I promise.

Q. Quick question. Is Nina someone to be admired or pitied, and also do you have a quick message for troops serving around the world watching the Oscars on the Armed Forces Network?

Natalie Portman Will Be the ‘Best Mom in the World,’ Says Costar
If this award season has proven anything, it’s that Natalie Portman is one of the most talented actresses working today. But according to her friend and costar, Greta Gerwig, theBlack Swan Oscar-nominee might soon have another worthy distinction.

“I think if everything else she does in her life is an indication of what a great mom she’ll make, she’s going to be the best mom in the world,” Gerwig told PEOPLE at the 2011 Film Independent’s Spirit Awards of her No Strings Attached costar.

“She’s a smart lady,” adds the Greenberg actresses, who had the misfortune of being Portman’s competition in the best lead actress category at the Spirit Awards. (Portman took home the prize.)

The two actresses have kept in touch since wrapping No Strings Attachedand have spent time together in New York, where Gerwig lives and Portman has been residing with fiancé Benjamin Millepied.

It’s been a mighty successful month for Ms. Natalie Portman with her engagement, pregnancy and Golden Globe. There’s nothing like destroying a streak of victory with a shitty rom-com! The Oscar-nominee teams up with the painfully one dimensional Ashton Kutcher in Ivan Reitman’s, No Strings Attached. The film pollutes theaters nationwide Friday, January 21st.

Check out the review below…

The Players:

* Director: Ivan Reitman
* Writers: Elizabeth Meriwether, Michael Samonek
* Cast: Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, Olivia Thirlby

The Plot:

Adam (Kutcher) a television writer and bona-fide “dude” has the hots for Emma (Portman) a Doctor. Emma’s total disinterest in a relationship makes her enormously appealing to Adam, and in his desperation he agrees to partake in strictly sexual interactions with her. No snuggling, breakfast, or labeling…a dream for most young men, but not for Adam. Buckle up as Kutcher puts his abs and recycled jokes to work to snag the girl!
