10. Olivia Wilde
Born Olivia Coburn, known professionally as Olivia Wilde, took a stage name in honor of her beloved writer Oscar Wilde.
Since childhood, the girl was distinguished by a craving for sports and love for animals. As a fifteen-year-old schoolgirl, Olivia participated in all the volunteer activities in her city, happily helping stray dogs and cats at the local shelter.
Having matured and become famous, the actress began to actively advocate for animal rights and feminism. Olivia is a dedicated vegan and promotes ethical behavior towards animals.
9. Tom Cruise
The spy fighter star looks so good for a reason, despite the fact that he has already changed his fifth dozen.
In addition to sports, which Tom has always respected, at thirty-five he became a follower of the Church of Scientology, which, among other things, recommended a vegetarian diet.
By eliminating most animal products from the diet, Cruz gradually taught his whole family to a similar diet and has been an exemplary vegetarian for twenty years.
8. Jennifer Lopez
The famous singer and actress grew up in a very religious family, which, according to her own statement, had a greater influence on the girl’s character.
Due to her difficult financial situation, Jennifer tried many works until, by a lucky coincidence, she ran into a recording studio agent.
After the signing of the contract and the dizzying success of the singer’s first single, Lopez stopped needing money and began to consider helping animals and promoting vegetarianism as one of the priority areas.
7. Joaquin Phoenix
Joaquin made his decision to become a vegan at the age of three, when, being with his father on a fishing trip, he witnessed the caught fish hitting the bottom of the boat. This incident shocked and impressed the future actor so much that he immediately announced that he was becoming a vegan upon returning home.
Already being an adult and an accomplished person, Joaquin did not break his promise. Moreover, he is an active member of the animal welfare community and uses clothes made only from artificial materials, saying that fur and leather are barbaric and will soon go out of use.
6. Alicia Silverstone
The popularity of this actress came after the release of the film “Clueless”. And although, according to the plot of the film, the girl did not differ in special intelligence and responsibility, in real life Silverstone is very different from her on-screen image.
This manifests itself not only in the attitude of the actress to life, but also in taking care of her own health.
Since childhood, Alicia did not differ in good health, so she was forced to pay great attention to nutrition and regimen. As a result, the girl realized that vegetarianism suits her perfectly and has a beneficial effect on the body.
5. Brad Pitt
Multiple voted Hollywood’s Sexiest Actor, Brad Pitt is also a staunch vegetarian.
While on the set of the historic blockbuster “Troy”, he met Eric Bana, who played the role of Hector.
The actors quickly found a common language and soon became bosom friends. It was Eric who persuaded Pitt to become a vegetarian, describing all the advantages of such a diet. And although Brad, on duty, needed to look muscular and fit in the frame, which seemed impossible to many without eating meat, his new diet had only a positive effect, thereby completely convincing the actor of the correct decision.
4. Demi Moore
The ex-wife of Bruce Willis and simply beautiful Demi Moore has been following a strict diet for thirty years.
A renowned human rights activist and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, the actress also fights for animal rights. This ultimately pushed her to vegetarianism.
Realizing the undoubted benefits not only for the body, but also for the protection of our smaller brothers, Moore decided to become a vegan, completely eliminating all animal products, but during childbirth again returned to vegetarianism, starting to follow a more gentle diet.
3. Woody Harrelson
Woody Harelson was born into a large family, and his parents divorced when the boy was three years old. At school age, he was forced to earn extra money after lessons on the farm and, after spending a long time with the animals, in the end was imbued with compassion for them.
Already in college, Harelson became an adherent of veganism and has not changed his principles for many years.
In his own words, he feels great without eating meat and other animal products, proving by personal example that this does not affect human health in any way.
2. Natalie Portman
Having played at a very young age, the killer’s girlfriend in Luc Besson’s action movie “Leon”, Natalie Portman rightfully takes an honorable place among the fighters for nature.
It was this fact that led the girl to the realization that vegetarianism is another way to change something in this world. Speaking at world forums dedicated to the protection of wild animals, Portman advocates a ban on the use of our smaller brothers in laboratory experiments.
After shifting her entire family to fruits and vegetables, Natalie decided to go even further and soon became a vegan. However, after a while, she realized that this could negatively affect her health, and abandoned this venture.
1. Tobey Maguire
The well-known first performer of the role of Spider-Man on the big screens, Tobey Maguire from adolescence began to get involved in vegetarianism.
And although he did not find support for this issue in the family, this did not prevent the young actor from adhering to his own principles.
At the time of filming the first part of the film, Toby was already twenty-six years old, but he looked much younger than his age. To some extent, this is the merit not only of the healthy lifestyle of the actor, but also of his diet. It is not easy that his character in the film advises children to eat more vegetables in order to become strong like Spider-Man.
