Quantcast Vegetarian StarJudd Apatow Went Vegetarian For One Year Thanks To James Cromwell

Judd Apatow

Can one celebrity inspire another to go veg?

Yes, but it may be harder to teach them to do it in a healthy manner.

Judd Apatow has James Cromwell to thank for trying the plant-based diet that he was able to maintain for about a year.

Unfortunately, the three veggie pizzas a day diet isn’t the best for most metabolisms, even if there’s no meat on them.

Apatow said:

“I tried to be vegetarian for a year and I gained a lot of weight because I said, ‘You know what? I’m going to replace all meat with pizza.’ And I gained so much weight.”

But taking the advice of one of the more prominent vegetarian voices in Hollywood has at least exposed him to the lifestyle.

Maybe next time, he’ll be a bit smarter about it.

“I was listening to the radio and James Cromwell was on the radio… and he was explaining why you should be a vegetarian, the philosophical and ethical reasons and environmental reasons, and the second he was done talking, I couldn’t eat meat for a year, and then I just got so bored of leaves, but I’ll probably do it again at some point.”

    Fellow vegetarians, I think we should stress that a shift to vegetarian (and preferably vegan) diets is the best thing we could do for our health, for animals, for our imperiled planet, for conserving resources, and for reducing hunger, and that such a shift would help reduce the current epidemic of diseases afflicting so many people and would help avert a climate catastrophe and other environmental threats to all life on the planet.
