Dozens of celebrities are now embracing the vegan lifestyle along with the millions of regular folk worldwide, and we thought it would be a great idea to give a shout out to these stunning vegan women you maybe never knew were vegan!
1. Petra Němcová
Sexy vegan celebrities keep on coming!
If you were going to invent the perfect poster girl for veganism, then Petra Němcová would be it.
The stunningly beautiful Czech supermodel, who has been eating vegan since 2007, is very environmentally aware and a great example to all who follow her.
2. Sinead O’Connor
The Irish singer has never been one to shy away from controversy, but she hasn’t been overly vocal about her veganism…and why should she be? We all know that it’s the most natural thing in the world, right?
3. Nicole Lapin
The former CNBC and CNN news anchor has been a vegetarian since her youth and a vegan since 2002, despite most of her colleagues not believing it.
“When you’re out in the field, most of your meal options involve meat with a side of something fried. I’ve learned how to be creative and improvise and can eat anywhere – even a steak house or a gas station” she said.
4. Portia de Rossi
The Australian actress apparently had an aha! moment that led her down the vegan path. That was back in 2008, when de Rossi moved to a farm in California with her wife, Ellen DeGeneres, and she hasn’t looked back since.
5. Sandra Oh
The Canadian actress and star of the hit show, Grey’s Anatomy believes that being vegan is far more than just a dietary issue, it’s a full-on lifestyle choice, and we couldn’t agree more.
She has regularly taken fellow cast members to vegan restaurants to show them just how tasty and healthy the plant based life can be. We salute you Sandra!
6. Carrie Underwood
The country music star has been a vegan for a few years now and admits that she isn’t the militant type when it comes to living the lifestyle, but she has helped raise awareness on some important issues.
Back in 2013, Underwood spoke out against the “Ag Gag bill” in Tennessee that made it a crime to film animal abuse or cruelty without turning it over to the authorities within 48 hours, preventing animal rights activists from gathering enough evidence to build a case against the abusers.
7. Jenny McCarthy
Jenny McCarthy is still looking fabulous in her forties, and it’s all thanks to her gluten-free vegan lifestyle, she says.
The model turned actress claims to have a lot more energy and has even lost a few pounds…not that she really needed to!
8. Christie Brinkley
The model and actress may be in her sixties, but she still looks as good as ever thanks largely to her healthy lifestyle.
Although she admits to having the very occasional oyster, Brinkley hasn’t eaten either meat or dairy for the majority of her life.
The English singer/songwriter is a committed vegan and fitness fanatic. She credits chef Mary Mattern with keeping her on the vegan path.
She once said about Mattern, “Whether you are vegan or just wanting a healthier diet, Mary’s recipes will guarantee to keep your food really delicious and fun.”
10. Famke Janssen
The former fashion model turned actress has been on a plant based diet since 2014 and puts her veganism down to having an affinity with animals.
She has also recently spoken out about the dangers of drinking from plastic water bottles, both because of the damage that they do to the environment and the chemical “leakage” that can transfer from the plastic to the water itself.
Dea is passionate about pursuing gentle, pure living in all its forms. She’s a veg and fruit foodie, who loves to explore the healing properties of plant-based foods and then fully indulge in their sun-filled taste. She believes that “In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”
