It makes me so happy to know that these high profile celebrities have really big hearts and choose a vegan lifestyle because of their love for animals.
Joaquin Phoenix is my favourite vegan celebrity for sure, I love that he takes such a powerful stance and uses his platform to educate and promote awareness. He is also such a gifted and talented actor. A few of my other favourites are Alicia Silverstone and Mayim Bialik, both of whom give away my age - Mayim because I loved Blossom and Alicia because my fellow vegan best friend and I must have watched Clueless 20 times together, it was our favourite movie back in the day! I admire Bryan Adams as a fellow Vancouverite who has also taken his veganism to the next level by joining forces with Vancouver-based vegan dairy startup bettermoo(d) to help motivate change in the global food system, starting with dairy. Finally, I have to mention Elliot Page for everything he stands for.
Miley Cyrus chose to become a vegan in 2014. Miley spoke about her passion for sustainable fashion during the Met Gala. “For me, I want to bring a message which is veganism, and that there doesn’t have to be torture in fabulous fashion,” she told Vogue.
U.S. Senator Cory Booker from New Jersey became a vegetarian in 1992!
For Cory, the transition to veganism was a gradual one, but he said his last non-vegan meal was on election night in 2014. “I want to continue to be a part of a movement of folks who are fighting against corporate interests that are undermining the public good and the public welfare,” he told VegNews.
I have also read recently that Ryan Gosling is Vegan - as if I couldn't love him more!!
