Robert Downey Jr Goes Vegan — Says He Acts "For Cash And Legumes"

by | January 20, 2020

Robert Downey Jr has announced that he is now “off chicken” and is on a plant-based diet instead.

The popular actor announced the change during the premiere of Dolittle earlier this month — a film in which Downey plays the part of Dr. Dolittle.

Praising the skills of his wife Susan Downey — the producer of the Dolittle film — Downey said, “She is the greatest creative producer in the history of cinema….and I make faces for cash and chicken.”

“Even though no, I’m off chicken now. I’m going plant-based. For cash and legumes.”

In addition to switching to a vegan diet, the environmentally-conscious actor has also set up a foundation called The Footprint Coalition.

The foundation aims to use a combination of robotics and technology to “make a significant dent in combatting the climate crisis.”

The recent Critic’s Choice Awards, the Screen Actor’s Guild, and the Golden Globes all served an entirely plant-based menu this year.

The decision to drop meat from all three of the Hollywood events was made in support of tackling climate change and protecting the environment.
