Natalie Portman buys into vegan shoe business
Natalie Portman has stolen the hearts of men everywhere for the better part of the past decade. Going from a childhood star into a true acting threat with roles in films like “Black Swan”, it was only a matter of time before Portman leveraged her clout. Natalie decided to put her money where her beliefs were when she decided to invest in a line of vegan shoes by the name of Te Casan.
