Golden Globes party hosted by T Magazine and Dom Perignon - Los Angeles

Once again, Wolfgang Puck will be in charge of catering the Academy Awards governor’s ball.

According to Eonline, Puck has been preparing dishes for everyone who attends for the past 16 years.

And when Puck says everyone, he includes the vegetarians.

“We have almost everything,” Puck said. “If somebody says, ‘I want salmon,’ we have salmon. If somebody wants vegetarian, we make it. It’s really just like a restaurant.”

Puck is no stranger to more compassionate food.

He made vegan pizza with Ellen DeGeneres on her daytime talk show, tossed the tofu for a party benefiting the Best Friends Animal Society and has spoken out on the cruel conditions factory farm animals endure.

Puck deserves a statuette of his own–one that’s delicious, edible, milk and butter free, caramel flavored…

Natalie Portman Mocks Ben Stiller, Meat Plant At Oscars

Written by Vegetarian Star on Friday, February 27th, 2009 in Actresses, Videos.

Besides donning her lovely vegan shoes and ethical jewelry at the Academy Awards recently, vegan Natalie Portman also took a stab at a meat processing plant. 

She and Ben Stiller presented an award together, and Ben decided to imitate the recent makeover, or shall we say unmakeover, of vegan Joaquin Phoenix, sporting a long scruffy beard and matching unkempt hairdo, complete with weirdo behavior.

Portman said, “You look like you work in a Hasidic meth lab.”

Many are speculating Portman was referring to a 2008 federal raid on a Hasidic-owned and operated Agriprocessors meat processing plant in Postville, Iowa.

Authorities discovered several infractions, including equipment for producing methamphetamines.

This is the same plant at which PETA secretly recorded a video on its controversial slaughter practices. 

Other allegations included rabbis insulting workers while throwing meat at them, undocumented and illegal workers, and various health and safety issues.
