Yes, Natalie Portman actually enjoys food. And she’s going to prove it in the upcoming season of Top Chef: Las Vegas.
E! Online reports that the V for Vendetta actress will be appearing on the cooking show when it returns to the airwaves. In addition to Portman, the new season of Top Chef—which debuts on August 26—will feature guests such as illusionists Penn & Teller and renowned restaurateur Wolfgang Puck.
Burger-lovin’ hottie Padma Lakshmi will be returning as host. We’re drooling already.
That Top Chef Masters was like a teasing little appetizer. It hardly sated our summer cook-show cravings. Thank goodness Bravo is getting ready to serve its main course.
Top Chef: Las Vegas is set to kick off on Aug. 26.
More importantly, each plate episode will have some pretty impressive garnish. Natalie Portman, Penn & Teller, Wolfgang Puck, Todd English, Daniel Boulud, Tyler Florence, Laurent Tourondel and Nigella Lawson are among the guests making an appearance on the sixth season of the foodie hit.
Cookbook author Padma Lakshmi returns to host, as does head judge and Craft restaurant king Tom Colicchio, Food & Wine magazine’s Gail Simmons and food critic Toby Young.
Sorry for the delay! Natalie made an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman on November 7. She wasn’t there to promote anything in particular, but she spoke a about the voting process, her grandmother, her dog, as well as other things. You can watch the interview on Youtube. I added screen captures from the appearance, as well as photos of Natalie leaving the studios with her dog.
