5 Notable and Inspiring Celebrity Vegetarians

Ted Danson, Natalie Portman, Alicia Silverstone, Quinn Cummings, and Carrie Underwood

Vegetarianism is important for one’s health and the health of our planet; it’s absolutely essential for the many animal lives saved each year. Sometimes is fun to take a look at some of the celebs in our midst who are also vegetarians. These are only a few, but there are dozens of celebrity vegetarians that should be celebrated. Be sure to Tweet or message your faves who are vegetarian and let them know that you appreciate the kindness they show through standing up for animals through their daily lifestyle choices.
 
Ted Danson
 
Ted Danson was the highest paid actor on television in the late 1980s and early 1990s, thanks to the epic success of the television show, “Cheers.” He also saw success as a film star in such movies as “Three Men and a Baby,” “Cousins,” and “Made in America.” The enduring star has flirted with vegetarianism for several years, and his wife, Mary Steenburgen, told the ladies on “The Talk” in November 2011 that Ted had made the switch and was now completely vegan. Ted has long campaigned for environmental causes, even starting the American Oceans Campaign, which is now called Oceana. Since being a vegan also does so much good for the environment, this is a great and important step for him to take in keeping with his strong convictions. 
Natalie Portman
 
Natalie has had a whirlwind of personal and professional success in the past year. She had her first child and won her first Academy Award. This serious star became vegetarian as a child because of ethical concerns for animals, and she went completely vegan in the past few years. Natalie can be seen in her Oscar-winning part in “The Black Swan,” which is now on DVD.
 
Alicia Silverstone
 
Alicia really walks the walk as well as talking the talk. She has written books on her veganism and has an entire website dedicated to the topic called The Kind Life. Since she stole hearts as the lead role of “Clueless,” Alicia has been in demand as an actress, and she has embraced the opportunity that the spotlight gave her to also spread the word about a cruelty-free, vegan lifestyle, and she speaks out about how happy and fulfilling such a lifestyle can be.
 
Quinn Cummings
 
Since stealing hearts as the young child star of “The Good-bye Girl” (which earned her an Academy Award nomination while she was still in elementary school), Quinn has been in the public eye. She grew up to be a successful author and blogger. Her first book, “Notes from the Underwire,” is available in bookstores, indie online stores and Amazon, and she blogs regularly at QCReport.com. Her vegetarianism is something she writes about in an approachable and open way, and she is one of the funniest writers of all time. 
 
Carrie Underwood
 
The singer of such irresistible hits as “Before He Cheats” is a long-time vegetarian and a recent vegan. Known for her country-pop songs, the lovely star has spoken out about her love for animals and her commitment to a cruelty-free lifestyle.
