I hate clicking on these type of links because I inevitably end up reading the "comments" section which almost always pisses me right the eff off. As for Nat., I'm glad she is at least still vegetarian. I guess you have to do what feels right for you and if she felt reintroducing eggs and dairy into her diet was what she needed to do during her pregnancy, for whatever reason, so be it.

Well, she's in choice. I can't fault a pregnant woman for doing what she feels she needs to.

One more reason not to trust celebrities.

I don't think it's worth taking a chance with your child, a child is for eternity.

If she were/is really doing it for the kid, then some slack is warranted, yeah. Comments such as these however, make veganism look lame and unattainable:<br><br>
"Eggs I wanted in the beginning but then they grossed me out after a while. If you're not eating eggs, then you can't have cookies or cake from regular bakeries, which can become a problem when that's all you want to eat." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br>
I'm not too worked up about it, but if she really just wanted some cake....well.

To me it didn't sound like she did it for the kid, but that she was "listening to her body" and that she just really wanted to eat eggs.

My body isn't very smart, when it comes to nutrition. It tells me to eat donuts and ice cream every day, but I stopped listening to it after about the age of 12.

Actually, I would <i>especially</i> fault a pregnant woman for this, particularly one who knows what's at stake for the animals. It's the choice to bring another human into the world with the statement that that human and your convenience are far more important than all the animals you are making suffer for it. It's bringing yet another human into the world to create more suffering for all the other earthlings. I wish human babies weren't born when the cost is that other earthlings have to be treated like tools for the birth and life of that precious human baby. It's just continuing the cycle of human abusers.<br><br>
I might cut more slack for a woman without a lot of resources, but Natalie is complaining about B-12 and craving pastries in the article. Natalie can easily get a B-12 test - in fact she can have someone come to her house and do it - and get vegan pastries.

I know, yes I know. Still, when a woman is pregnant, the hormones can make you a crazy person. They really can and often do.

Ditto on those comments. Damn me for looking. Humanity = idiocy.

Oh the unapoligetic and proud omnivore - blood dripping from their chins as they spew their 'top of the food chain/as god intended' drivel. If I was ever considering eating meat again - all I would need to do is remind myself what crowd of drooling ass clowns I would then be associating myself with.

Oh no, I'm so disappointed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> I love her and she was one of my vegan role models.<br><br>
I've never been pregnant (and don't ever intend to be), so I guess I won't come down too hard on her, but honestly it does sound like she's making a lot of lame excuses. How hard can it be for Natalie Portman to get vegan cake??

...and in regards to the serious commitment and dedication she lends to her profession (IE: Black Swan) it's disappointing that being vegan has proved too challenging for her.
