Written by Vegetarian Star on Thursday, September 25th, 2014 in Actresses, Food & Drink, Meatless Mouthful.

Sadie Frost

“For years I was considered a goody two-shoes for being a vegetarian and avoiding wheat. But I don’t do this for vanity, it’s to feel good. I don’t talk about it. I think it makes people feel rubbish if you constantly talk about your eating habits. I actually find it quite vulgar.”

Sadie Frost, on being the less vocal vegetarian these days. Does discussing your diet too much make you sound vulgar? Keep a clean mouth by stuffing it with plant-based goodies. Occasionally, offer to share some without offending.

“As a New Jersey native I was delighted to learn from my friends at The Humane Society of the United States that our state could be the first in the country to enact a ban on the importation and sale of ivory – a product of horrific cruelty to elephants and rhinos, who could very well become extinct within decades if we don’t act now. Governor, you have my full support and I hope you usher this critical bill through without delay.”

“It is insulting to suggest that retired, elderly individuals can be entertained by watching miserable birds spend their entire lives unable to follow their instincts. Cages deny birds all that is natural and important to them—including room to fly, fresh air, and enough water to bathe in.”

Cloris Leachman, in a letter she wrote with PETA to retirement facilities on releasing caged birds and other animals kept on the premises into more appropriate environments.

“Spiritually being a non-vegetarian was blocking me. It was hard to leave and I won’t say that I don’t crave it, but you can do it with your will power. Eating just vegetables and food without blood or flesh, is so nice. My skin, face and how I feel as a person has changed. And I feel it’s a small price to pay for so many things.”

–Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, on how she benefited from switching to a vegetarian diet.
