Famous Vegans and Vegetarians by Victoria Phillips in Food News, October 17, 2011
Some of Hollywood’s elite refuse to eat meat. See why these famous folks made the switch:
The animal rights activist and actress began a vegetarian lifestyle when she was still a kid. Eventually, she became a devout vegan. Portman feels so strongly about the equal treatment of animals that she started a vegan shoe line in 2009. When pregnant with her first child, however, Portman switched to a vegetarian diet because she says her body was craving eggs and dairy.
The former president used to be known for his love of McDonalds, and junk food in general, but after two separate heart procedures, Clinton shied away from the bad stuff. Clinton changed to a vegan diet when he realized a major food overhaul was necessary for his health to truly improve. The former president now says he no longer consumes meat, dairy or eggs, and consumes very little oil.
