Natalie Portman stuns on the November cover of Marie Claire!

Natalie Portman is all grown up! I guess I should stop saying that, considering she’s a 32-year-old married woman. I just always think of her as a child actress-grown up for some reason. She certainly doesn’t look 32, does she? She has some great jeans! Maybe it’s because she’s vegan.

Here are the photos from the November issue of Marie Claire. The only movie Natalie Portman has coming out soon is ‘Thor: The Dark Loki’ which I guess she might be promoting. I saw a trailer for this movie (after the jump) and it looks HORRIFIC. I mean really, really bad. I’m wondering why on earth Natalie would have done such a crappy movie. (And then I remembered she did ‘Your Highness’).

In other Natalie news, she and her family are moving to Paris! Natalie’s husband Benjamin Millepied accepted a job as the “director of dance” at the Paris Opera Ballet. She’s super excited to move, because Paris is a great place to be a vegan. “I’ve been vegetarian since I was nine and vegan on and off. At the moment we live in Los Angeles near Thai Town so we eat a lot of good vegan Thai food and there are also great pasta places nearby – a good pasta is probably my favorite dish. Paris is getting better for vegans – you can get anything there if you know where to look.”

Kim Kardashian reveals she’s been following the Atkins diet to lose weight.

Kim Kardashian has been working VERY HARD to lose the baby weight she gained while pregnant with North West. She looks great. She has curves where she should – and motherhood just suits her. She looks great.

So what is Kim doing to lose the weight? Not only is she exercising, but she also announced she’s following Atkins diet. When a fan asked her how she’s losing the weight on Twitter, Kim responded “I’ve actually been doing the Atkins diet & luv it.” I’m surprised Kim is doing something that….. old. Atkins was huge in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Seems so non-trendy for her. I had a family member do the Atkins diet – about 10 years ago – and he lost close to 200 pounds. It’s crazy how quickly you can lose weight. But the whole no-carb thing would kill me. A diet where you’re not allowed to eat FRUIT? Crazy.

US Weekly reports Kim is “eating lots of lean proteins, healthy fats like nuts and avocado, carbs, fruits, veggies and cheese. She wanted to be a healthy, nursing mom and not toxify her milk with her diet or lose weight too quickly. She’s been doing Atkins since her doctor approved it at the end of June.”

Miley Cyrus is showing off how long her hair has gotten recently. After cutting her hair super short last year, the singer posted a photo to her Instagram account, showing off how far she’s come. “My hair is getttttting so long,” she said. (If only she’d put her tongue back in her mouth, we’d be good.)

She also shared a new picture of herself with her dog, Floyd, while she’s sick in bed.

Reese Witherspoon covers Elle Magazine, opens up about how her children changed her life.

Reese Witherspoon, 37, covers the November issue of Elle Magazine, dubbed the “Women in Hollywood” issue. Penelope Cruz, Melissa McCarthy and Shailene Woodley also have covers (I’ll post those below). Witherspoon looks amazing on the cover, doesn’t she?

In the interview, she talked about her children, and how they made her a better woman. “Somebody was saying to me the other day, ‘Oh, people get less interesting when they have kids.’ I just don’t think that’s true,” the Oscar winner says. “I feel like I was so confused before I had kids, I almost got in my own way.”

Witherspoon has two children with her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe. 14-year-old Ava, and 9-year-old Deacon. She also has a 12-month old son, Tennessee with her second husband Jim Toth. “Having kids made me clearer about who I was as a woman. I just wanted to exhibit good qualities for my daughter. I was a little competitive before I had kids — probably really competitive, to be honest,” she said. “It really made me let go of that.”

Reese is not only in front of the camera, but she’s also behind it. In 2000 she founded Type A Films, which merged with Pacific Standard in 2012. “I started noticing a couple years ago that I wasn’t seeing women as the stars of movies,” she recalls. “I’m seeing them as the guys’ girlfriends, or so-and-so’s wife. I just thought: God, if I don’t start buckling down and start producing some movies, what’s my daughter going to see in the movies?”
