And Natalie Portman's exact issue was that she was having trouble finding vegan baked goods for her cookie cravings. A millionaire. In LA. Having trouble. But she has always been wishy washy about being veg*n so that wasn't much of a surprise.
Yep, Drew was vegan in the early 2000s, she graced everything that PETA could put her face on, then declared that she was sick of not being able to buy the shoes and clothes she liked and that the "limiting" factors of veganism in the lifestyle she wanted to have was enough to make her give up on it. Sad, but she's not the first to say something like that, and I'm sure she won't be the last.
Fully agreed on how Portman's comment wants to make me bang my head against the wall. If I can manage to help someone in 'middle of nowhere, Nebraska' get vegan cookies and sweets shipped in to fill their cravings, how the hell does a millionnaire Hollywood actress have any grounds to claim that she wasn't able to get what she wanted?!? Incredibly absurd, but that's the world we live in - people these days many times are looking to simply slap one more label on their persona for some extra attention, but when they can't just walk out the door and get the perfect vegan version of something they want, they call it quits and declare the whole thing a failure.
I hope Mike Tyson is a changed man, I don't think it's fair to hold it against someone for life if they claim they're different and don't want to be the same person they once were (so long as they show they're serious about being a better person in the end). But to me, it just hasn't been enough time elapsed to know for sure if he's serious for the long haul, or, if it was simply a PR stunt to get some extra attention at a time when he was falling into obscuity save for a cameo in The Hangover. Only time will tell on that part, looks like we'll just have to wait and see!
