Natalie Portman is opening up about her latest pregnancy craving ... vegetarian food!
The Oscar-winning Black Swan actress tells Us Weekly:
- â€œI actually went back to being vegetarian when I became pregnant, just because I felt like I wanted that stuff. I was listening to my body to have eggs and dairy and that sort of stuff."
A few years back, Portman revealed she decided to go vegan after reading the book Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer.
Natalie adds, â€œIf youâ€™re not eating eggs, then you canâ€™t have cookies or cake from regular bakeries, which can become a problem when thatâ€™s all you want to eat."
Read what Ms. Portman says grossed her out when she first got pregnant ... after the jump.
Natalie tells Us Weekly:
- â€œI actually wanted eggs at the beginning and then they grossed me out after awhile. I know there are people who do stay vegan, but I think you have to just be careful, watch your iron levels and your B12 levels and supplement those if there are things you might be low in in your diet.â€
