  • Maggie Q on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    (#20) Maggie Q

    • 36

    Maggie Q uses her celebrity and social media to be an advocate for animal rights and to help nonprofit animal organizations. The Nikita star has been a vegan for over 20 years.

    While attending a concert, the actress was approached by a PETA employee who made her aware of how animals were mistreated in the entertainment industry. It was a lesson that Q would take to heart. She talked about her shift to a vegan lifestyle in 2017: 

    I transitioned to a plant-based diet about 19 years ago while living in Hong Kong. I attended a concert, and a PETA Asia employee was tabling outside of the show. I was watching her, and it didn’t seem anyone was paying much attention to what she was offering. It made me feel bad for her, so I walked over. We connected, and she sent me information on animal-welfare in the fashion, food, and entertainment industries. It made me sick, but nothing prepared me for the truth of the environmental impact of meat production. I quit cold turkey and never looked back. I didn’t understand how I could have ever claimed to love animals but hadn’t made the choices to protect them.

  • Bill Clinton on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    (#12) Bill Clinton

    • 72

    Saturday Night Live got a lot of mileage out of President Bill Clinton's love of fast food. However, the jokes became a lot less funny in 2010 when the former president woke up one morning feeling run-down. Clinton went to the hospital that same day and needed emergency heart surgery. Clinton previously had quadruple-bypass surgery in 2004 and needed a new set of stents inserted.

    The emergency surgery was a wake-up call for Clinton, who wanted to not only see his daughter Chelsea get married, but also be around for his future grandchildren. He opted to try out a vegan diet and subsequently lost 30 pounds. He said:

    I just decided that I was the high-risk person, and I didn't want to fool with this anymore. And I wanted to live to be a grandfather. So I decided to pick the diet that I thought would maximize my chances of long-term survival.

  • Portia de Rossi on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    (#15) Portia de Rossi

    • 46

    Portia de Rossi always considered herself an animal lover. However, she did not place all animals on the same level. The actress and her wife Ellen DeGeneres moved to a farm in California, which was home to several cows and calves.

    After the couple adopted a horse, de Rossi noticed how the cows interacted with it: 

    The cows formed a single-file line, and one by one they touched noses with the new horse as a greeting. The calves wouldn't approach on their own, so one of the cows nudged them forward. Each of the babies touched the horse's nose, then jumped around and played like little children.

    The interaction between the animals was an emotional one for de Rossi:

    I started crying and thought, I can't possibly keep eating these animals. Before that moment, I wouldn't have fathomed cows doing something like that. I was forced to confront the fact that I had chosen to remain ignorant of their nature because it was just easier that way.

    Over the course of the next year, the Arrested Development star went completely vegan. She said she no longer craves cheese or meat and feels happier:

    Before that morning on the farm, I ranked an animal's value based on how "human" it was. Now I don't judge other beings that way - every animal has its own intelligence and sensitivities. They're all lovely, worthwhile, and deserving of our respect.

  • Dax Shepard on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    (#2) Dax Shepard

    • 44

    Dax Shepard got to work with long-time screen actor Beau Bridges in the 2012 Action Comedy Hit and Run. Bridges was 70 years old at the time, and Shepard was impressed with his physical spryness. He asked Bridges the secret to his success, and it turned out that the elimination of meat and dairy made all the difference:

    When I saw his age was 70, I almost crapped myself. I would go, "Jesus, Beau, you’re not supposed to be able to punch somebody out in a scene at 70. My grandpa couldn’t have done that. What’s your secret?" And he goes, "I’ve been a vegan for 12 years." I was like, damn, I need to think about this. And then I saw Forks Over Knives, that documentary, and I was like, I’m in. I’ve been a vegan since January.

    In addition to his vegan diet, Shepard also quit smoking and drinking. The changes in his lifestyle and diet have made him "tremendously excited about life."

  • Alicia Silverstone on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    (#10) Alicia Silverstone

    • 42

    When Alicia Siliverstone was 21 years old, she watched a documentary about how animals are slaughtered. It was enough to make the young actress give up eating meat. She recalled:

    I just took a look at my dog and said, "If I'm not willing to eat you, how can I continue to eat these other creatures that have the same desire to live, are just as funny, just as cute as my dogs?"

    The decision to become vegan may have initially been an ethical one for Silverstone, but it also dramatically improved her health. She suffered from bad asthma and insomnia as a teenager. After going vegan, the Clueless star says that she now sleeps wells, keeps extra pounds off, and has a lot of energy. Silverstone published a vegan cookbook, The Kind Diet, in 2009. 

  • Venus Williams on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    (#17) Venus Williams

    • 38

    Venus Williams almost retired from tennis after she was diagnosed with the autoimmune disase Sjögren's syndrome. The complicated disease caused the tennis champion to withdraw from the 2011 US Open during the second round because of various pains and fatigue. She needed to take time off from the grueling sport. Williams went to a raw vegan diet and was able to get back on the court. She explained her dietary decision and how it changed her life: 

    I started for health reasons. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, and I wanted to maintain my performance on the court. Once I started I fell in love with the concept of fueling your body in the best way possible. Not only does it help me on the court, but I feel like I’m doing the right thing for me.
