Natalie Portman On 'Eating Animals' Documentary: 'I'm Not Trying To Attack You'

Natalie Portman keeps it cool an casual while attending a special screening of Eating Animals hosted by the International Documentary Association at the DGA Theater on Sunday (October 21) in Los Angeles.

The 37-year-old actress serves as the narrator and producer for the documentary, which is an examination of our dietary choices and the food we put in our bodies, based on the Jonathan Safran Foer memoir.

“I don’t expect anyone to completely change,” Natalie recently expressed (via LA Times). “It doesn’t have to be an identity, it just has to be a consciousness — the same way that you might not want to use plastic bottles as much, but every once in awhile, you’re really thirsty and the only thing you can get is a plastic water bottle so you get it, and you feel kind of bad. Maybe you’re a little more wary about eating meat at every meal, or there’s a day a week that you consciously choose not to do it. The thing I hate most when you say you’re vegan is people trying to pick holes — like, ‘What if vegetables feel it when you bite into them? Don’t you know plants communicate with each other?’ I don’t want you to attack me about my choices. I’m not trying to attack you about your choices.”
