When Natalie Portman presented at the Environmental Media Awards over the weekend, she smiled through an embarrassing relic of her past: a pro-recycling music video she made when she was 11 years old.
The 29-year-old actress, who grew up on Long Island, was part of a eco-conscious children's song-and-dance troupe called World Patrol Kids. In the video, the group performs a song called "Recycle It!" against a backdrop of cheesy early '90s imagery such as the planet earth and a mountain of garbage on a landfill. Portman - one of three backup dancers, gets a closeup a little after the 1-minute mark; the rest of the time, she dances in awkward sync with two other young girls, doing sidesteps and disco hand revolutions to a funky beat.
Portman, star of the upcoming ballerina thriller Black Swan, has long been active in environmental causes - and this video provides solid evidence that her activism goes as far back to middle school. She's also a vegan and launched a collection of vegan shoes in 2007.
