Natalie Portman has finally decided that she has to move on from being a vegetarian to becoming a full-fledged vegan. That's probably why the Natalie Portman vegan goes up in the search engines right now. So the next question kids may ask is what's the difference between a vegetarian and a vegan? It's simple actually. A vegan virtually cancels out all animal products in his or her diet. That includes milk, cheese and other dairy products.
So back to Natalie Portman converting into veganism, the 28 year old Star Wars actress was exhorted to become a vegan because of the book she read -- Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer. This is a tough step for Natalie but she says she is really bound to attain this not just for health benefits but for animal rights advocacy as well. (Photo Credit: Brent Perniac/AdMedia)
