Happy New Year! PETA has named Bill Clinton Vegan of the Year for doing more to promote the lifestyle than anyone. Along with PETA, the Rotondi Foundation feels it is terrific that celebrities want to talk about and promote their healthy lifestyle choices.
Other celebs who have been feted by PETA (heh) include Alicia Silverstone, Joaquin Phoenix (narrator of Earthlings), Daryl Hannah, Demi Moore, Natalie Portman, Alan Cumming, and Elijah Wood. From pop and rock music, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Morrissey, Bryan Adams, Phil Collins, Alanis Morissette and Sinead O’Connor are also vegans.
Even if it becomes a big news item when one of these celebs admits to “the odd bit of fish” or “some [dairy] cheese” once in a while, you won’t see them hanging around a MacDonalds anytime soon. Eating healthy is everyone’s business.
