Natalie Portman: Documentary About 'Eating Animals'?

Natalie Portman may be stepping behind the camera for an upcoming project.

Author Jonathan Safran Foer, who wrote the book “Eating Animals,” revealed that the 30-year-old Oscar winner “is going to make a movie of it.”

“She wants to make a very personal documentary,” he added during an interview with the French site Chap last summer. “She contacted me, she told me that she loved the book. I know her now. I will help her eventually but it will be her vision. She’s only at the very beginning.”

The book, which Natalie has credited for convincing her to be vegan, “explores the many stories we use to justify our eating habits – folklore and pop culture, family traditions and national myth, apparent facts and inherent fictions – and how such tales can lull us into a brutal forgetting,” according to its official site.
