12 Hollywood Stars Who Are Hardcore Vegans

I remember watching a popular television talk show where the host had a slew of top-level Hollywood stars on as guests. These were real A-lister types, extremely well-known superstars. Anyway, the host of the show brought on pizza for them to eat, as kind of a funny gag. What happened next amazed me. The actors were suddenly extremely reluctant to eat the pizza, but they didn’t want to seem “too good” for pizza on live TV, so they were caught in a kind of dilemma. One extremely well-known actor decided to manually scrape off the cheese before eating his slice. Others simply refused to eat it altogether. After seeing this I started to wonder, are these real people, or are they robots? Do they even require sustenance?

The truth is that actors take their diets extremely seriously, and for good reason. Their health is very important to them, because their body is their career. If they start to look old too quickly, they lose out on many potential roles. The entertainment industry is incredibly harsh, and expects all people on the big screen to look like picture-perfect super humans. So these actors who were presented with a pizza on the talk show were not being snobbish, they simply cared about their health.

As it turns out, many actors have made the choice to become Vegan for this very reason- they are trying to take care of their bodies. Many studies suggest that this type of diet can reduce the risk of cancer and a huge variety of other illnesses, as well as actually prolonging one’s lifespan. So is it any wonder why so many actors are Vegan?
