It looks like it will be the year of Natalie Portman
This Harvard grad started the year off with the Oscar nominated Black Swan, then it was the romantic comedy No Strings Attached and good news for all fans boys because she will be back later this year for the Disney movie Your Highness and then in the Summer Blockbuster Thor as Jane Foster.
Portman, who is an advocate for animal rights, has been a vegetarian since childhood. She became a vegan in 2009 after reading Jonathan Safran Foer's Eating Animals. She does not eat animal products or wear fur, feathers, or leather. "All of my shoes are from Target and Stella McCartney," she has said. In 2007, she launched her own brand of vegan footwear.
Natalie Portman also won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as Nina Sayers aka the Swan Queen in the movie, Black Swan.
Fanboys rejoice and enjoy a full year in the company of this actress who's got beauty and brains!
