She's set to appear on the 24th season opener of "The Simpsons" when it airs September 30th, and Natalie Portman maintained her share of the spotlight thanks in part to a feature in the October 2012 issue of InStyle UK magazine.
The 31-year-old actress partook in a wide-ranging interview in which she spoke about everything from her idol and family to staying fit and must-have make-up.

"I was a Vegan, but I went back to being a vegetarian during my pregnancy. I think you crave comfort foods [when you're pregnant] and I wanted dairy. I lean towards beans and lentils, but I love pasta and bread too. I was really into millefeuille for awhile. It's flaky and creamy at the same time! Of course, if I feel like I'm packing on the pounds, those are the first foods to go."
On her idol:
" I love Sofia Coppola's full aesthetic. She presents herself in a ladylike fashion and has so much personality."
On staying fit:
"Since filming 'Black Swan,' I do different types of exercise, like swimming and dancing for fun. I usually run 3 to 5 times a week. I like the way it makes me feel - it gives me a good energy and focus, and makes me feel better about my body."
"My grandmother believes you don't leave the house unless you have perfect hair and make-up, so she is always at me for not brushing my hair or not putting on enough make-up."
On her must have make-up:
" I keep three lipsticks with me, always: one nude, everyday color, plus a red and a plum for dressing up."
"I think smell is the first strong sense that we have. When I was filming in Tunisia, the kids would come out to me with handfuls of jasmine to buy. Now, I get the whole feeling of the place from that one smell."
