Natalie Portman Explains Why She's Vegan in a Heart Warming Speach

on 20 October 2017

Hollywood actor and passionate animal rights advocate Natalie Portman recently took to the stage at the Environmental Media Association awards after receiving recognition for her ongoing commitment to sustainability. In the speech, Portman opens up about why she is vegan and how it relates to creating a more environmentally friendly future. “Factory farming is responsible for most of the air, water [and] land pollution that disproportionately affects our poorer communities” She explains, before stating to the crowd that “we get to make decisions three times a day [about] what we do with our planet and can make a difference by even once a day or once a week choosing not to eat animals or animal products”. Vegetarian since childhood, Natalie says she has been following a vegan diet for over 6 years and that it has been an incredible influence in her life. Portman’s new film ‘Eating Animals’ had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival earlier this year and is based on the book that inspired her to adopt a vegan diet; also named Eating Animals. The documentary takes an in-depth look at the realities of modern-day factory farming and the methods used to mass produce meat, dairy, and eggs. (livekindly.co)
