Twenty-eleven was a great year for Natalie Portman. With countless trophies she got for “Black Swan”, who can say otherwise? However, apart from being a talented actress, Natalie is also known for being a passionate vegan. And after some time out of the limelight, it’s said that she is filming her own vegan documentary to kick off 2012.
The said documentary will be made out of Jonathan Safran Foer’s book “Eating Animals. The book is basically a personal record of the author’s journey to learning about what we eat. Foer himself revealed about the Oscar-winning actress’ plan to make a movie for it in a French news source last summer.
Natalie credits the book as the one that got her to become a full-fledged vegan. And according to one green site, though the said green project is still on its initial stage, Foer will eventually be helping the now a mother actress.

Word was also relayed on Wednesday that novelist Jonathan Safran Foer, whose book “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” was made into a film that’s current in theaters, revealed this summer in an interview with a French news source that Portman was planning on making a documentary out of his food manifesto, “Eating Animals.” Portman wrote in 2009 for HuffPost that reading the book turned her vegan.
Portman has her own production company, Handsomecharlie Films, which she started in 2007. She backed “Hesher,” which starred Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and is behind the ever-delayed “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.”
