‘Hot Ones’ Features Vegan Chicken Wings with Natalie Portman [VIDEO]
Vegan actress Natalie Portman was the guest of honor on the most recent episode of online web series Hot Ones, hosted by Sean Evans.
Evans kicked things off stating:
“So I want to start by acknowledging the elephant in the room, because through watching the film it really made me reconsider the future of this show, but that’s an existential crisis for another time.”
When asked what ultimately led her to go from reading Eating Animals as a book to working on making it a film, Portman pointed out that beyond the “super disturbing” animal suffering, it was the “the human impact, the environmental impact” of factory farms that stood out to her.
“I say to people, like, I think it’s really hard to completely change, but if everyone cut out meat, dairy, eggs from one of their meals a day, or one day a week, like if you could commit to that for yourself, if everyone did that, it would make such a huge impact environmentally, and on how many animals are put into difficult conditions.”
Portman handled the spiciness of the wings like a seasoned pro and ended the episode stating:
“Eating Animals is coming out very soon in big cities across the country, and you should see it because it’ll teach you why you should eat vegan chicken wings with your hot sauce and not support factory farming.”
