We all know that veganism has been around for thousands of years, but the movement that we love is certainly growing faster than ever of late. Just look at the number of vegan celebrities there are these days!
Dozens of celebrities are now embracing the vegan lifestyle along with the millions of regular folk worldwide, so we thought it would be a great idea to give them a shout out here on Happy Happy Vegan.
So, grab a cuppa and enjoy our list of famous vegans!
Stevie Wonder doesn’t need a whole lot of introducing. If ever there was a superstar, he is it. The American giant of soul is now a full-blown vegan after many years as a vegetarian, and he loves it so much he even started singing its praises on The Late, Late Show with James Cordon.
The former Hannah Montana star has been vegan since 2014 when her much loved dog, Floyd, passed away. She took a while to come out and speak about her decision to ditch all animal products but is now bringing the merits of adopting a vegan lifestyle to an audience that may have otherwise never given it a second thought. Love her or hate her, you’ve got to admire the aggressive stance that she takes on so many social issues. Vegan celebrities don’t come much bigger than Miss Cyrus, so it can only be a good thing for the vegan lifestyle.
Unlike most of us, Joaquin Phoenix cannot remember being anything but vegan.
The Hollywood star has been living on a plant based diet since the age of three, dispelling the ridiculous myth that humans cannot live a healthy lifestyle without meat and dairy
The X-Men superstar is certainly one to embrace the vegan lifestyle and she’s pretty outspoken about the practice of factory farming, too. Add to that the fact that she was named the Sexiest Vegan by PETA back in 2014 and you have one of our very favorite vegan celebrities in the world right now.
Actor Alec Baldwin is a strong advocate for animal rights and has long been associated with organisations such as PETA, even narrating their 2002 Meet Your Meat video which highlighted the barbaric nature of factory farming, bringing the unethical treatment of animals reared for food to a wider audience.
Comedian and all-round shaker-upper, Russell Brand is now a fully-fledged vegan after a long stint as a vegetarian. Brand, when questioned about his decision to go fully vegan, said, “I don’t see why someone should lose their life so I can have a snack.” Sums it up nicely, doesn’t it?
