Natalie Portman dispelled 9 myths about veganism

Natalie Portman has been a vegetarian for a long time but switched to a vegan diet in 2009 after reading Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer. Exploring the environmental, economic and social impacts of animal husbandry, the actress also became a producer, created from this book. During her pregnancy, she decided to include some animal products in her diet, but later returned to a vegan lifestyle.

the actress says.

Portman visited the New York office of media publication PopSugar to record a short video and clear answers to the most popular questions that torment the heads of omnivores (and not only) people.

“People have been eating meat since ancient times…”

Well, people did a lot of things in the old days that we don’t do anymore. For example, they lived in caves.

“Can you only date vegans?”

Not! My husband is not a vegan at all, he eats everything and I see him every day.

“Are your kids and the whole family also going to have to go vegan?”

Not! Everyone must decide for himself. We are all free individuals.

Vegans eat to tell everyone they are vegan.

I do not understand what it means. People are embarrassed, picky, it’s hard for them to deal with it. I think people change their diet or should change their diet because they really care.

“I wanted to invite you to my BBQ party, but there will be meat.”

This is cool! I love hanging out with people who eat what they want because I think everyone should make their own decisions!

“I will never go vegan. I tried tofu once and hated it.”

Look, I think everyone should listen to themselves, but there are so many delicious options out there! And there are new things coming up all the time. You should try the Impossible Burger*, even though they have steaks, but I highly recommend it. I am his fan!

“How can anyone afford to be a vegan? Isn’t that crazy expensive?”

In fact, rice and beans are the most expensive things you can buy, but they are the most delicious and healthy food. And more vegetables, oils, pasta.

“If you were stranded on a desert island and your only food option was an animal, would you eat it?”

An unlikely scenario, but if I had to save my life or someone else’s, I think it would be worth it. Again, incredible.

“Don’t you feel sorry for the plants? Technically, they are also living beings, and you eat them.”

I don’t think plants feel pain. This is as far as I know.
