Famous Vegans

In recent years many famous people have lived a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle. Famous vegans don’t always stay vegan. Some celebrities and musicians follow a healthy vegan diet in order to achieve health or weight loss goals. Other stars are committed to a vegan lifestyle over the long term. Regardless of the situation famous vegans have helped bring attention to many health, environmental and animal welfare issues over the years.

Once Upon a Time … Famous Vegans

It’s hard to truly know any celebrity’s personal life, since many famous musicians and actors do their best to maintain a private life out of the spotlight, but many people have been known to use a vegan diet to accomplish specific personal or health goals. Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morissette, Natalie Portman and Alec Baldwin are just a few. It has also been rumored in the past that actress Gillian Anderson and Madonna have also followed a vegan diet in the past.

Famous Vegans - Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres

Hollywood couple Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres moved to a farm in California and brought animals on to the land including 4 cows, 2 calves and a 4 year old horse. On Oprah, Portia told the story of her “a-ha” moment, the moment she realized she wanted to live a life that wasn’t dependent on animal products. She describes the scene as she arose early in the morning and sat in the pasture watching the new horse. “Everything was so quiet that I think the animals forgot I was there. Then I witnessed something extraordinary: The cows formed a single-file line, and one by one they touched noses with the new horse as a greeting,” de Rossi says. “The calves wouldn't approach on their own, so one of the cows nudged them forward. Each of the babies touched the horse's nose, then jumped around and played like little children,” she continues, “I started crying and thought, I can't possibly keep eating these animals. Before that moment, I wouldn't have fathomed cows doing something like that. I was forced to confront the fact that I had chosen to remain ignorant of their nature because it was just easier that way.” http://www.oprah.com/spirit/Portia-de-Rossis-Aha-Moment-Becoming-Vegan. More than once Portia and Ellen have publicly shared their experience in making this lifestyle change.
