James Cameron received the National Geographic award for “Explorer of the Year” at their 125th Gala celebrating notable scientists and explorers. The “Titanic” director & oceanographer accomplished the incredible feat of diving solo to the deepest part of the ocean and used his acceptance speech to extol the virtues of eating vegan. Revealing that he became vegan a year ago, he emoted, “I want to challenge all of you as people of deep conscience, people who are environment stewards of the earth and oceans…By changing what you eat, you will change the entire contract between the human species and the natural world. I felt like I was waking up from a long sleepwalk. I believe we are all sleepwalking off a cliff if we don’t do this.”
Johnny Depp is rumored to have gone vegan just in time for his 50th birthday to please his girlfriend, model Amber Heard. Getting in shape with Pilates, giving up alcohol and eating a plant-based diet is all part of his rumored, new healthful lifestyle. Even though he seems extremely private, going public with his veganism would surely make the cause that much sexier! Can’t wait to see him star in the new, upcoming movie Lone Ranger!
Bruce Springsteen, rocker extraordinaire, reportedly follows a mostly vegetarian diet as an integral part of his healthy lifestyle of exercise and nutrition. At 63, still doing 3 hour concerts, he certainly shows the stamina of much younger showmen, on stage and off. His vegetarian diet must be providing him with all the nutrients and energy he needs!
Tia Mowry, star of the ’90′s sitcom Sister, Sister, has stepped forward as the latest celeb advocate for PETA, in a fabulous ad clad in a lettuce-fashioned apron. She explains the origins of her veganism on the PETA website: : “I wanted to become a voice for my community. … I wanted to educate my culture about the benefits of becoming vegan. … The more you learn about the benefits of being vegan, the more you become alive and the more you become aware of why it’s a really great decision. Not only am I helping myself, I’m helping the animals out there, I’m helping the environment. Going vegan—I feel great.” Seems like that says it all.
