Famous Vegans In 2013.
Actors, rock stars, reality show celebs, singers… there are many famous vegans that are a great inspiration for aspiring vegans – although as we know many celebrities are known to change their diets back and forth over the years, here is a list of famous vegans as of 2013 and what they’ve said about their vegan lifestyle…
My veganism is based on a concern about where my food is coming from. In my perfect world, I’d have webcams wherever food is processed so I’d know how clean it is.
I was on a bus and some girl sees me blowing my nose,” Harrelson is saying of his early years trying to make it as an actor in New York. “I had acne all over my face, which I’d had for years and years. And she’s like: ‘Hey, you’re lactose intolerant. If you quit dairy, all these symptoms you got will be gone in three days.’ I was like twenty-four. And I was like, No way. But three days later: gone.
Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell
Kristen says: “It’s more about the health benefits than the ethics. But it’s compounded by the fact that I love animals and feel better not eating them.”
“I’m now vegan, goodbye eggs, hello Ellen”, Russell Brand tweeted, sending a shout-out to longtime vegan Ellen DeGeneres.
I show my love for animals by not eating them or participating in any business that profits directly from their exploitation or – if that word irks you – their “use.” You may show your love for animals by eating them. You may love animals, but only “intelligent” ones. You may draw the line anywhere you gosh darn please, but for me, I couldn’t draw it anymore so I just gave up the line. I threw out the line.
I ride longer distances on my bike, can do more pull-ups than ever, and my brain seems to have a larger capacity for new projects, problem solving, songwriting, and fielding random questions. My health and strength make me a better performer and all that combined gives me more confidence to go out in the world and shine my light. It also makes me a lot better in bed. Just sayin…
I wish I had been vegan since birth.
Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi
Ellen says “I started seeing my skin change, I used to get facials all the time and I had rosacea and I just thought I had rosacea, and after two weeks my rosacea went away and I started losing weight and I had more energy, slept better.”
It’s commonly said that if slaughterhouses had clear glass walls nobody would eat meat. I think people go out of their way to remain ignorant about how factory farm animals are treated.
After I finished the rooftop fight [scene] (in The Dark Knight Rises), I ate four slices of pizza and split a bottle of red wine with my guy. I hadn’t eaten like that in months. I felt so ill. By the time the movie finished, I decided to give veganism a try. You can’t go hog-wild as a vegan. You can eat a lot of pasta and have a few vegan pastries.
Basically we should stop doing those things that are destructive to the environment, other creatures, and ourselves and figure out new ways of existing.
I love the feeling that I’m doing good (for myself, for animals, and for the planet) with every meal. I feel alive and healthy and rarely get sick.
I’ve been vegan for 15 years, and it turns out it makes a very big impact on the environment to eat fewer animal products, which cause more greenhouse gases than all of transportation combined.
All my blood tests are good, and my vital signs are good, and I feel good, and I also have, believe it or not, more energy.
