Eating Animals premiered in New York last week, and now it’s the turn for Los Angeles. Natalie and director Christopher Quinn attended a Q&A after a screening at the Landmark Theater this afternoon. Here are a few instagram photos and a full video of the appearance:
We have a couple of more video excerpts, belonging to Natalie’s interview for Today´s Show with Hoda Kobt, recorded at SiriusXM Studios. The full interview will air on June 25:
Finally we have one of the interviews made at the SiriusXM studios in NYC last weekend, on the occasion of the release of “Eating Animals. In this video, Natalie reflects on what it means to be a vegan:
Natalie is spearheading a new campaign calling on U.S. lawmakers to stop tearing families apart as authorities crack down on illegal immigration.
She has joined forces with activists at the National Domestic Workers Alliance to slam the new policy via a MoveOn petition, which will be delivered to Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, and members of the U.S. Congress.
“This shockingly cruel, traumatic, and inhumane practice has no place in our country,” Natalie shares in a statement. “It must be stopped immediately, and without holding these children hostage to pass other anti-immigrant policies.
“We must speak loudly enough, and in large enough numbers, that the media stays focused on this story.
“I’ve joined the National Domestic Workers Alliance to launch this petition. Please sign it and stay tuned for more ways to help these families.”
More than 320,000 people had added their names to the campaign until now.
Natalie isn’t the only star to speak out against the controversial illegal immigration policy – Bette Midler, singer John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen, filmmaker Ron Howard, actresses Evan Rachel Wood and Alyssa Milano, and country singer Willie Nelson are among the celebrities to blast the Trump administration in recent days, while Hollywood veteran Kevin Costner expressed his disgust during an appearance on talk show The View last Tuesday.
Natalie has attended a second round of Q&A´s this Saturday in New York, marking the end of the promotion of “Eating Animals” documentary, after three intense days. Here are the photos:
And we ended this intense day with Natalie’s attendance at a couple of Q&A´s following the screenings of “Eating Animals” at the Landmark Theater 57 West and the IFC Center in NYC:

It must be recognized that when Natalie commits herself to something she believes in, she is heavily involved in promoting it. Here we have a new sample of it: she is the protagonist of a new video for Munchies, in which she teaches us how to cook a chickpea stew:
And more promotion for Eating Animals. Natalie has been on CBS This Morning to talk about the documentary based on Jonathan Safran Foer’s book, and here is the video of the interview:
It’s time for a summary of the latest news in Natland during the last week…
–Eating Animals will be released in North America in selected cinemas on June 15. Because of that, Natalie will be promoting the documentary in a couple of TV shows. She will attend the Late Show with Stephen Colbert next Thursday, and CBS This Morning, along with book author Jonathan Safran Foer, on Friday. She will be in various Q&As after screenings in NYC those days as well.
Pale Blue Dot, the first feature film by Noah Hawley, will start filming in five weeks, and we have a new addition to the cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, legendary actress Ellen Burstyn (The Last Picture Show, The Exorcist, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, Requiem for a Dream) will play the grandmother of Natalie’s character in the movie.
–Variety reports that Annihilation is getting a new life during its release on Blu-Ray and DVD. After an ephemeral passage through the American box office, the film by Alex Garland was placed second in sales in physical formats last week, after Black Panther.
Speaking of Annihilation, the talented Angelina has found a new photo of Natalie and Gina Rodriguez, taken during the promotion of the film in February. Enjoy:
Annihilation arrives today on physical formats after debuting on digital last week. Because of it, Alex Garland spoke to IndieWire about being moved and overwhelmed by the response to his science-fiction thriller. In the interview he also makes it clear that he is not interested in making sequels to any of his films.
We also have some great photos of Natalie, Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodriguez taken during the film promotion:
