Not much out there today so far, so how about a few mini updates to tide us over?

– The lovely Padma Lakshmi, host of Top Chef, has mentioned Natalie in this new interview about the show.

Charlize was certainly game for anything. Natalie Portman is not, because she’s a vegan. We design the challenge around [the guest]. But they volunteer to come on the show, we don’t go and scout people.

– I’m not so sure about this one, but this article claims Natalie and other celebs have indicated they are attending or at least considering attending the Sherwood Oaks College Bankable Actors & Directors class beginning January 31st – February 2nd.

– Finally, Kenyan actress, Janet Kirina, is a Natalie fan.

Acting role model: Natalie Portman, she is giving some insane performances.
