Zac Efron Joins The Wave Of Celebrities Turning Vegan

by | March 22, 2018

American actor Zac Efron has revealed in an interview with Teen Vogue that he has joined the wave of celebrities turning vegan and is now currently eating a ‘purely vegan’ diet.

Veganism has been growing in Hollywood with more and more celebrities turning vegan and admitting they have adopted the lifestyle, and now Zac Efron has joined the ranks. In the interview with the magazine this week Efron stated “I’ve been experimenting with eating purely vegan, it’s completely changed the way that my body works, and the way that I metabolize food, the way it turns into energy, the way that I sleep. It’s been brilliant. It’s been great for my exercise, and great for my routine.”

Efron admitted one of the reasons behind the lifestyle change was to take better care of his body, be healthier and continue doing what he loves. He said, “I want to be able to do what I’m capable of now when I’m 50, 60, 70 years old — like my great-grandfather.”

He is not the first celebrity to announce they have become vegan. At the beginning of 2018 Black Eyed Peas frontman and producer will.i.am revealed he has switched to a plant-based diet for health reasons. He has joined other well-known celebrities turning vegan such as Alicia Silverstone, Moby, Miley Cyrus, Joaquin Phoenix and Woody Harrelson who have all admitted to cutting out animal products.

Recently singer/songwriter Drake also joined the ranks of vegan celebrities, when he revealed he has decided to no longer eat meat. He made the announcement on the gaming site Twitch.

Is this the future of Hollywood? With the rapid growth of celebrities turning vegan it seems like it might be.
