Jonathan Safran Foer's New Book Already A Hit With Celebrities

by Chiara Atik · November 13, 2009

[All photos by Marc Dimov for PMc]. Yesterday evening, a completely random group of celebrities gathered to celebrate the launch of Jonathan Safran Foer's new book, including Elizabeth Berkley, Greg Lauren, Bobby Flay, Elvis Costello, Sandra Bernhard, Katie Lee, and Liev Schreiber. (Ok, that last one is not so random--Schreiber directed the movie adaptation of Foer's Everything Is Illuminated.)-

The event was held at the home of Tom and Kathy Freston, who hosted the event. The book, called Eating Animals, is definitely having quite the effect on the celeb world. On a recent episode of Top Chef, Natalie Portman claimed to eat anything, as long as it isn't meat. Well, apparently she's changed her mind: Portman recently proclaimed that the book is what finally pushed her to becoming a vegan. So basically, I'm afraid to read it. Will chefs Katie Lee and Bobby Flay turn Vegan too, once they finish reading? Stay tuned to find out...
