Natalie Portman Really Craves Burritos While Pregnant

Padmé Amidala, I mean Natalie Portman, is just like us, y'all!

In September, the speculation surrounding Portman's second child heated up after the 35-year-old actress debuted her baby bump on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival.


Now, we know for certain the "Black Swan" actress is getting ready to welcome her second child into this world with husband Benjamin Millepied.

Natalie Portman recently sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to talk about her latest film "Jackie," and eventually, DeGeneres and Portman spoke about the 35-year-old's pregnancy and how she's felt while expecting a second child.

Portman said,

It does make you look forward to the day when you can just have your own body on the red carpet.

Portman and Millepied already have a son, Aleph Portman-Millepied, and while she didn't reveal the gender of their second child, she did talk about her food cravings during this pregnancy.


Portman said,

With [Aleph] it was very... I wanted cream puffs, anything dessert with cream in it, or just plain whipped cream straight. This time it's, like, healthy -- pineapple, cucumbers, burritos -- which is maybe less healthy, but delicious.


Seriously, though, it took a second bun in the oven for Natalie Portman to start craving burritos? Girl, where have you been for the last 34 years?

Sure, Portman also talked about her portrayal of former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in her upcoming movie, saying,

I think I knew her like most Americans know her. Sort of what she looked like, the fashion, the style and of course the broad strokes of her life that we know about -- JFK, his assassination and later [second husband Aristotle] Onassis -- but this was sort of my first [time] approaching her as a human being.

But like, can we talk more about the burritos?

I mean, the kids, the movie and being a mom are all great, but burrito cravings, you know?

In any event, I'm glad Natalie Portman has finally come to her senses and started enjoying numerous burritos.

If you'll excuse me, I think it's time to go get some lunch.
