Quantcast Vegetarian StarAlicia Silverstone Sticks To Diet On Set of “Butter” In Louisiana

Broadway Opening Of RED - Arrivals And Curtain Call

Alicia Silverstone traveled to Shreveport, Louisiana to film Butter, a political satire movie where butter carving is the competition instead of an election.

Shreveport is no New York City, and it’s not as easy for Silverstone to walk around the corner during a break to grab an eggplant wrap with vegan cream cheese.

She told Wall Street Journal that everyone else on the set, vegetarian or not, has similar problems, but having another vegan in the cast, Olivia Wilde, makes it easier on her.

“Everyone here — both people who eat meat and people who don’t eat meat — is struggling with the food because it’s a very different world here in Shreveport; there’s a truckload of salt, and apparently every likes frying things alot. And there’s a lot of cheese involved. But I was prepared, and sussed out the situation before I got here. One really sweet thing is that Jason, the writer of the film, said to me that he was happy I was there…mainly because he knew that meant he was gong to eat well on the days i was on set. [My co-star] Olivia [Wilde] is also a vegan, so there’s a lot of support.”

Two restaurants in Shreveport that are vegetarian friendly are Counter Culture and Earthereal Restaurant and Bakery, both not being exclusively meat free and the latter serving vegan options.
