Famous Vegans

“I do it because I love animals and I saw the reality, and I just couldn’t ignore it anymore.” – Ellen Degeneres

“The vegan diet helps me stay fit while I’m on tour and keeps me from going on binges.” – Ozzy Osbourne

Tyson went vegan in 2009 and said, “It made me feel better than ever.” – Mike Tyson

She created somewhat of an empire out of her veganism. She wrote a cookbook, The Kind Life, and launched a lifestyle and food website to accompany her book. – Alicia Silverstone

“I got into being vegan because I was simply looking to benefit from being more compassionate. I have since come to learn that it is an animal-based diet that is responsible for the overwhelming majority of cases of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, multiple sclerosis, and all kinds of other problems.” – Steve-O

“I lost 20 pounds on the vegan diet and I have no more aches and pains.” – Alanis Morissette

“The more I opened myself up to the idea of the full scope of exactly what non-violence translates to, the less interested I became in consuming the energy associated with the flesh of an animal that only knew suffering in his/her life and pain and terror in its death.” – Russell Simmons

“My family and I were on a boat, catching fish. As one fish was caught, he was writhing, then he was thrown against the side of the boat. You couldn’t disguise what it was. This was what we did to animals to eat them. The animal went from a living, vibrant creature fighting for life to a violent death.” – Joaquin Phoenix
