Black Swan Star Natalie Portman Gives Up Veganism During Pregnancy

Black Swan star Natalie Portman told Atlanta radio station (listen) Q100 in 2009 she became a vegan after reading Jonathan Safran Foer’s book “Eating Animals” but due to her pregnancy with fiance Benjamin Millepied she has decided to go back to being vegetarian.

“I was listening to my body to have eggs and dairy and that sort of stuff.

“I know there are people who do stay vegan while pregnant, but I think you have to just be careful, watch your iron levels and your B12 levels and supplement those if there are things you might be low in in your diet.”

Portman continued: “If you’re not eating eggs, then you can’t have cookies or cake from regular bakeries, which can become a problem when that’s all you want to eat: I actually wanted eggs at the beginning, and then they grossed me out after a while.”

“People can say a lot of things and they have a 50 percent chance of being right,” Portman said. “I’m Jewish and I think in Judaism, there’s a lot of superstition around not doing too much before the baby comes.”

Portman added she does not know the gender of her baby.
