Natalie Portman’s greatest pregnancy fear? – being hungry! The 35-year-old star is currently expecting her second child and as her due date approaches, she has come up with a fool-proof way for making sure she’s always fed.

“I feel like I get a little panicky about food availability. Like, if I'm going somewhere, I'm like, 'Will they have something that I will want to eat at that point?' So before I go anywhere, I'll have a plate of pancakes or, like, a veggie burger or whatever, just to be prepared,” the Oscar winner told Jimmy Kimmel on Monday night.

When the host asked Portman if the SAG Awards provided her with food at this past Sunday’s show, she replied, “They did, but I preemptively ate so I didn't need to eat.”

Portman said that people tend to treat her differently while she’s pregnant, explaining, “I feel like they're very careful with me. Everyone's like, 'Oh you don't have to stand up, that's OK!' and I'm like, 'I can stand up out of a chair still!'”

But there’s one special treatment she’ll happily accept.

“Cutting in the bathroom line is what I'll take,” she said, smiling.

Portman and her husband, Benjamin Millepied, welcomed their son, Aleph, in 2011, but recently told ET’s Nancy O’Dell that they haven’t chosen a name for their second child.
