High profile Hollywood vegan: Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman announced to People Magazine last month that she is engaged to long-time boyfriend Bejamin Millepied, renowned ballet choreographer, and that the two are expecting her first child in 2011. Though the vegan actress has kept her pregnancy a low profile, Portman was proudly showing off her gorgeous new engagement ring at the 2011 People's Choice Awards earlier this month. Portman and Millepied have been dating since 2009. Millepied also helped Portman train for her role in Black Swan.

Jake Gyllenhal jokes about Portman's veganism

Portman, who recently told Vogue Magazine that she’s a “vegetarian at home and a vegan when out”, was also presented the Desert Palm Achievement Award by Jake Gyllenhal at the Palm Springs International Film Festival earlier this month. The two dated briefly in 2006. Gyllenhal not only compared Portman to Audrey Hepburn, he teased about her vegan lifestyle. "She’s a vegan, which makes it really frustrating when you’re picking a place to eat,” he joked.

Portman loves hummus

In her interview with Vogue, Portman confesses she eats a lot of hummus. "I consume my own weight in hummus every day," the vegan actress says. Portman also says she cooks a lot and even does vegan baking.

We aren't sure how Portman likes her hummus, but we do have a spicy update on the garbanzo bean dip we are certain you will love.
