Natalie Portman: Daring Dress Displays Derriere At Cannes Film Festival For Vegan Actress’ Directing Debut [Photos]

Natalie Portman got attention for her daring dress at the Cannes International Film Festival. Giving onlookers a view of her derriere, Portman accompanied her display with a sassy smile, reported People.

There was nothing accidental about the display of her big girl panties, however. Natalie’s Rodarte dress had a sheer-striped arrangement, deliberately designed to reveal that uber-chic black lingerie.

Portman was particularly excited to attend the festival this year, which gives her the opportunity to debut as a director for A Tale of Love and Darkness. Natalie also acts in the film, which reveals the history of Amos Oz, an Israeli journalist who was raised in Jerusalem. And A Tale of Love and Darkness is particularly meaningful to Natalie because she also spent part of her early years in Israel.

For Portman, life is a balancing act between her profession as an actress — and now director — and her personal life as a loving mother. As the Inquisitr reported, Natalie was concerned about her vegan diet when she became pregnant.

As a result, Portman temporarily became a vegetarian.

“I actually went back to being vegetarian when I became pregnant, just because I felt like I wanted that stuff. I was listening to my body to have eggs and dairy and that sort of stuff.”

Following the first stage of her pregnancy, however, Natalie eliminated eggs and shifted to a semi-vegan diet.

“I actually wanted eggs at the beginning and then they grossed me out after awhile,” she explained.

Now that she’s back on her vegan diet, Natalie also maintains that slim body by following a plant-based diet that eliminates processed foods, reported Yahoo.

She bakes her own foods to cut down on salt and fat as well.

“I cook a lot, and I even do vegan baking,” revealed Portman.

As for exercise, Natalie keeps that derriere toned by hiking and running. She works out regularly at a gym, as well.

What’s next for the actress? Portman is planning on taking on the role of a celebrity known for taking fashion risks, and that’s Jacqueline Kennedy, reported the Huffington Post.

Titled simply Jackie, the movie showcases the First Lady’s life in the days just following her husband’s, President John F. Kennedy’s, death. It will be produced by Darren Aronofsky, who directed Natalie in Black Swan.
