Natalie Portman & Padma Talk "Little Pricks" On Top Chef (VIDEO)

Natalie Portman guest judged on this week's "Top Chef." The challenge was for the chefs to cook vegetarian food, as Portman does not eat meat.

When one contestant's food came out with a garlic puff, Padma likened it to a "little prick" on her tongue. With laughter and back and forth, judge Tom Colicchio summed it up as "from a little prick to big in your mouth."

The whole exchange, with Portman weighing in, starts 3:50 into the clip below.
