Being a vegan — or at least trying out a vegan diet — is getting mighty trendy. And as annoying as diet trends can be, in this case, that's a good thing. Because when it comes to our environment, health, and the rights of animals, adopting a vegan diet is an all-around win. Yes, eating vegan might also make you look great, and if that's the motivation for some people and celebrities who are vegan, then I say whatever diminishes the animal agriculture industry is a good thing. But while some celebrities, like Beyonce and Jay-Z, have recently adopted a part-time vegan diet, others have been at it for longer or more consistently — and have gone all the way to full-time veganism.
But if you look up the Wikipedia page listing vegan celebrities, a quick Google fact check will reveal that it's not exactly accurate. Of course, it's a full-time job to keep track of which celebrities are currently vegan, especially when their habits and stances may be changing quickly. Luckily, my contacts at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have someone whose job is to do just that. I got in touch, asking for the most up-to-date list of verified vegan celebrities they have, and here's a list of just some of the many celebrity names they sent me.
So here you go. As of this article's publication, here are 32 celebrities who are currently verified vegans.
1. Ellen Page
Page is a longtime vegan who's outspoken about her reasons for the lifestyle, the main one being her core belief in social justice. As if she couldn't get anymore crush-worthy.
2. Jessica Chastain
The actress has been a a vegetarian for over 15 years, and a vegan for eight.
3. James Cromwell
Cromwell became a vegetarian after filming Babe, which might just be the best reason for switching ever. He's now also a vegan.
4. Alicia Silverstone
A famous animal lover, Silverstone has been vegan since 1998, when she was 21. Before she made the switch, she says she was battling severe asthma, insomnia, acne, and constipation. "I used to have all those white marks on my nails and they were very brittle, and now they're so strong I cannot bend them," she said on Oprah. After adopting a vegan diet, she says those issues cleared up, "and I feel like I look less puffy."
