Quantcast Woody Harrelson “Zombieland” Vegan Twinkie

Woody Harrelson “Zombieland” Vegan Twinkie

Premiere of Sony Pictures' "Zombieland" - Arrivals

If you’ve seen Zombieland starring Woody Harrelson and Jesse Einsenberg, you know that Woody gets his energy to run from the zombies by snacking on his favorite food of Twinkies.

In real life, Woody’s a raw vegan and regular Twinkies won’t cut it.

Just like Kal Penn had veggie burgers waiting for him at White Castle during the Harold and Kumar film, the directors on the set had specially made vegan Twinkies ready for Woody.

“They were actually edible for a guy like me,” Woody said.

Zombieland Twinkies were made from cornmeal and other vegan ingredients. This leads Woody to believe companies really can make healthy junk food if they put their mind to it.

“There’s a possibility that (manufacturer) Hostess could do a healthy Twinkie. It’s a thought.”

While they’re at it, can we get some vegan Ho-Hos too?

  5. Woody Harrelson Loses Weight for Movie | Ecorazzi Says:

    [...] Harrelson’s diet wasn’t an unhealthy one to begin with and his weight was on par with his height. He is a practicing ethical vegan and raw foodist. In the movie “Zombieland” Harrelson’s character was obsessed with eating Twinkies. He wasn’t eating the processed, packaged, really-bad-for-you Twinkies, however. He was actually eating vegan faux-Twinkies made from cornmeal. [...]
