Vegan & vegetarian actors

  • Vegetarian
    "I’m an old hippy vegetarian. I haven’t eaten flesh or fish since 1973"
  • Vegetarian
    "Please choose vegetarianism. Do it for the animals. Do it for the environment and for the sake of your own health."
  • Vegetarian
    "I believe that the world is for everyone and every creature."
  • Vegan
    “My brother would make animal noises of the creature I was eating and I thought ‘I have to go vegetarian’. But it wasn’t until I was 21 that I really started to understand the puzzle of the whole thing. I realised if I wanted animal cruelty to end, it would have to start here, with me. I never went back after that.''
  • Vegan
    "I turned vegetarian after 9/11. A friend of mine came back from New York and said that he couldn’t stand the smell of burnt flesh. It immediately reminded me of a barbecue. The world has so much suffering in it already—choosing to be vegetarian is one thing you can do to reduce the suffering on a daily basis.”

    "After I finished the rooftop fight (as Batwoman) on 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. I don't go the soy-meat route; I have a really plant-based diet, it’s great, I feel great!"
  • Vegetarian
    "I eat a healthy, Mediterranean diet. We are all veggies in my family. Always have been. My kids have never eaten fish or meat."
  • Vegan
    "When people ask me why I don’t eat meat or any other animal products, I say, ‘Because they are unhealthy and they are the product of a violent and inhumane industry'"
  • Vegan
    "Some of the things that I do, I think are very important and much more important than the radio show or the television show that I do or anything else that I do. I think right at the top of the list is the basic thing. And of course the basic thing is to hopefully stop people from killing anything. And to create a non-violent diet for themselves, because a non-violent world has roots in a non-violent diet."

    “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. The United Nations did a study Livestock’s Long Shadow, and that blew my mind. I started thinking that if people are vegetarian for just one day a week, that makes a huge difference!”

    It’s so obvious that animals have feelings and experience much the same emotions as we do – joy and happiness, fear and grief.

    “The thought of not being a vegetarian is ridiculous, it’s just unthinkable, like going backwards. I won’t eat meat again for the same reason I gave it up in the first place – I don’t want to be part of all that suffering.” "Viva! is essential – to touch our conscience, to wake us up – please join and save lives."
  • Vegetarian
    "I remember cutting into a steak and for the first time in my stupid life, I realised I was cutting flesh. That was it! Now, I feel absolutely sick when I think of the things we do to animals and to anyone who claims we have the best welfare in the world, I would say: ‘Who says so?’ We can end cruelty to animals and Viva! is right there, with a V at its front, spearheading into the future. Go Viva!"

    If you were to ask people, ‘If you could ease unnecessary suffering, would you?’ I bet 99 out of 100 would say yes.

    “I had a mixture of feelings when I first discovered what went on in factory farms. First of all there was rage that animals could be subjected to such suffering. It was followed by a sense of guilt that I had tacitly tolerated it for so long. Finally there was a sense of relief that I didn’t have to be involved with it at all – all I needed to do was stop eating meat. “Going vegan is central to saving animals, stopping the misery and torture that farmed animals endure. It’s also essential to saving the world. Viva! articulates the hopes and the aims of people who are conscious and want things to change - and really this is the voice of kindness and compassion and somebody needs to do it.”

    "Part of my reason for being vegetarian was because it practices respect and love for life all through the day, so three times a day, you make a decision to eat things that have not been killed."

    "I’ve been a vegetarian for 14 years now, and a lot of the time I avoid going to restaurants. I eat at home. Actually, I’m close to being a vegan. It’s never really been that hard for me. I’ve never had any desire to eat meat."

    I hate it when they put that little claim on milk that it’s completely ‘natural’ Yes, it’s natural for the cow but not for humans.
