The Ultimate Guide To Vegan

Chapter 17. Vegan Celebrities – You Are Not Alone!

Celebrities have a privilege to reach wide audiences and influence other people’s deeds. This is not always a great thing, as sometimes this influence doesn’t go any further than skimpy outfits or superficial values.

However, it would be absolutely foolish to accuse all celebrities of using their power recklessly. For instance, did you know that many famous people are actually vegan?

The list below will help you discover some of them. And who knows, maybe you’re about to find out that your favorite singer or actor supports vegan lifestyle?

Keep scrolling down to find out, as we’re about to present to you our list of 10 vegan celebrities.

Surely, Ozzy used to love munching on bats’ heads in the past, but not anymore by the looks of it!

The star’s venture into vegan lifestyle started after he watched the documentary “Forks over knives”. Ozzy noted that vegan diet definitely helps him stay fit, especially at the times of big tours.

Alicia Silverstone.

According to the former Clueless actress, the thought of eating animal products is almost repulsing to her. She is a long-known vegan, and she has voiced her ethical standpoint at Oprah’s show back in 2010.
