10 Vegans to Watch Out for on the Red Carpet
Pre-Oscar frenzy is at its height right now, ahead of this year’s Academy Awards on Sunday. But amid all the gossip and dress speculation, what we’re really looking forward to is seeing some of our favourite compassionate stars step out on the red carpet to show off their vegan “glow”. These are a few of the beautiful, talented Hollywood vegans we’ll be watching out for:
Ellen will be taking centre stage at this year’s awards – she’s hosting them! The much-loved talk-show star has been cruelty-free for years and even had a vegan wedding.
Up for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, the heartthrob has 20 years of animal-free eating behind him! Joaquin Phoenix
Compassionate Joaquin is the star of Best Picture–nominated Her – as well as some hard-hitting PETA videos!
Gorgeous Olivia, who stars alongside Joaquin in Her, already has one coveted award to boast about – in 2010, she was named PETA US’ Sexiest Vegetarian Celeb!
Jessica, who’s had two Oscar nominations to date, said of her vegan diet: “I don’t want to torture anything. … [I]t’s about trying to live a life where I’m not contributing to the cruelty in the world”.
Anne, who walked away with the Best Supporting Actress Award in 2013, even had custom vegan high heels made for the big night.
The visionary Avatar director and multiple Oscar-winner is a passionate advocate for a plant-based diet, telling fans, “By changing what you eat, you will change the entire contract between the human species and the natural world”.
Compassionate cutie Casey refuses to let dead animal flesh pass his lips and has teamed up with PETA US to speak out against practices such as cruel dehorning.
The award-winning Black Swan beauty eschews meat, eggs and dairy products because torturing animals is “just wrong”.
