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.

I honestly think she’s very talented and very beautiful. her documentary is gonna be great and useful. way to go Natalie!

I agree we eat way too much meat and the way it is produced is horrible, but how is this going to be any different from the other “eating animals” documentarys? People haven’t listen the in the past. Just becouse this time it’s someone “famous” doing to documentary doesn’t make it better or more on the issue?

Come on, it’s natural to eat animals. Rabbits, Horses,… I completely understant, just thinking about it, eeerk ! But beef,kitchen,… it’s natural. It is the alimentary chain, like cats eating mouses and birds, like a lion eating a gazelle… so, please, stop.

How this fake actress won an Oscar over Michelle Williams, I’ll never know.

have you people actually read the book ???

Or are you all just retarded judgmental idiots ?!!!!!

P.S. NOT EVERY VEGETARIAN WANTS EVERYONE TO STOP EATING MEAT.
I just want everyone to realize, that they eat way to much meat and the way it is being made today is not natural…it’s a sadistic torture!!!
Meat comes from living creatures for god’s sake – we should at least care that this animal was treated with respect before it landed on your plates!!!

@???:

i became vegetarian after a documentary, so another one can make an impact on some peoples lives. don’t forget that she has fans all over the world, who will watch his film.

@Chelsea:

HATER!!!
you should focus more on your country’s impact on our environment .

How about making a movie about thousands of Palestinians being slaughtered every single day by her fellow Zionists? Hateful, racist little b****.

She is more than okay to go along with the Palestinian genocide on their own soil, but animals being slaughtered keeps her up at night. Insincere c***!

@Chelsea: Why do you think you’re going to decide on what she should be worry about?? Do you worry that “your own people” are murdering Iraqis and Afghans?

@ilia:

How about making a movie about how “your people” killed Indians and took their land ??? !!!
Or how Americans kill Iraqis every day & pretend to fight against terrorism when really they just want the OIL ??? !!!
Or how about a new documentary about how America is destroying the environment ??? !!!

OR MAYBE YOU ALL SHOULD JUST DROP THE ZIONIST COMMENT, BECAUSE IT’S JUST PATHETIC AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CASE !!!

Yeah. There you go! How about the next time you try and insult a group of people you know NOTHING about, you’ll make some sense.

Let people be. Let them choose what they want to eat. Maybe watch this movie or read the book before making snap judgements though. I am a huge animal lover. I also read this book and became vegan. It changed my life. That’s something to be proud of.

Really can’t stand her anymore on her high horse about EVERYTHING.

She just stops eating meat for some time and then feels like lecturing us.

for all of you that are ripping on Natalie for promoting veganism why dont you open a damn book and learn about what goes on in these factories that produce the food you eat then you will have the standing to say whatever you want to her. You are supporting immense brutality to innocent animals and you are eating meat that is produced in often unsanitary conditions. So say all you want but shes right. if you eat 100% organic than do what you want but Natalie is completely right. most of the meat eaten by Americans is disgusting
