Natalie Portman in tears as she accepts online hot sauce interview challenge


Natalie Portman was left in tears as she promoted her new factory farming documentary Eating Animals on web show First We Feast as she gobbled up vegan treats dabbed with hot sauces.

The adventurous Oscar winner chatted to host Sean Evans about her new movie, the impact of social media, her favourite films, and her time as a student at Harvard University as she tried to keep her composure while nibbling vegan wings.

The actress had no problems with sauces like Howler Monkey, Heartbeat, Son of Zombie, and Los Calientes, but she struggled with Da’ Bomb, Hellfire and The Last Dab, guzzling almond milk to soothe her scorched tastebuds.

“I’m sweating and crying and snotting…,” she said after trying Hellfire, adding, “It’s manageable but…”
And she was not a fan of The Last Dab, telling host Evans, “That one’s unpleasant, but thanks for introducing me to this.”

As the interview, which was first posted on Thursday (14Jun18) ended, she asked the host how long it would take her mouth to return to normal after the hot sauce challenge, adding, “I’m feeling on fire!”
