And yet, some people at the top of the Hollywood tree still have self-discipline and stay true to their principles. The following five celebrities have adopted a strict vegan diet and for a variety of reasons.
When you consider the fact that Joaquin Phoenix was raised in the Children of God, it makes sense that he would feel at one with nature and decide to go vegan eventually.
In 2020, upon accepting his Best Actor Oscar at the Academy Awards, Phoenix made a speech about how we all need to work harder to reduce the suffering that farmed animals face. “We’ve become very disconnected from the natural world,” he said.
She might have had key roles in some of the biggest film franchises of all time, but this hasn’t stopped Natalie Portman from staying true to her beliefs.

He might not be the first person you associate with the vegan community, but yes, Woody Harrelson very much doesn’t eat meat, eggs, or milk. The “White Men Can’t Jump” star adores animals and has been vegan for more than three decades!

Not only has Lizzo been vegan since 2020, but she also likes to share her vegan recipes on social media. The singer has admitted that she eats plant-based meals to feel better, not in an attempt to lose weight.
