Natalie Portman can learn from Paris Hilton? Ouch

February 14th, 2008 // 153 Comments

Paris Hilton could teach Natalie Portman a thing or two about launching a shoe line. While Paris actually pressed the flesh and possibly infected a small child, Natalie Portman decided to play diva at her own shoe launch by showing up 45 minutes late, according to Page Six:

She gave 15 minutes of interviews before going back into hiding. Guests waited impatiently while sipping on Casa Lapostolle wines, which Portman chose because they are organic and biodynamic to go along with her vegan shoe line. The actress returned, reports a spy, “However, she showed up with only five minutes remaining before the party ended.”

Vegan shoe line? Are they made of tofu? Please. I don’t need hippie/diva Natalie Portman telling me what kind of shoes to wear. If I want to tie a pork chop to each of my feet, that’s my right to look rugged and awesome. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go to the butcher shop for some mutton loafers. I’ve got a hot date tonight and I want to look fancy as hell, son.

    I wonder if this discussion would have taken a different tone if the largest beef recall in the history happened sooner. Instead of mocking animal right activists, people should realize how much they actually benefit from their actions, in terms of food safety. What happened at the Westland slaughterhouse is typical, the USDA failed once again, and this will continue to happen if people remain so callous.

    hmm. amimals eat other animals. animals also often eat their own offspring when they’ve a mind to, but we don’t do that. if, as a society we followed every single thing animals did the debate on eating meat would be slightly different, but as it is i dont see that as a justification.

    as for the shoes, how do u know they were made by burmese children? thats just an assumption. and lots of leather shoes are now made in chinese sweatshops too. shoes can be both non-leather and union-made. natalie works for human-focused charities as well and i don’t think she doesnt care about human beings. she does seem v self conscious but thats a dif issue. i dont judge anyone for eating meat, i dont see why personal diet choices need provoke angry debate and name calling.
