There are plenty of well established reasons why people go vegan–undercover farm investigations, health, environment.

Now you may be able to add “carnivorous overeating” to the list of motivations for adopting a plant-based diet.

Hugh Jackman is featured in the August 2013 issue of Men’s Health, where he shares his workout secrets for getting The Wolverine body, as well as how he feels about the food he consumed to get in shape for the film.

Hugh Jackman has written to Nancy Pelosi, urging the Speaker of the House that the Improving Nutrition for America’s Children Act is passed this month. Sounds as if the actor who considered going vegan for the Wolverine sequel wants the same for America’s children as well.

In a letter to Pelosi, Jackman wrote:

“This crucial legislation would help schools serve more plant-based foods — fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes — because these foods have been shown to help children maintain a healthy weight and avoid disease. Schools should be able to purchase low-cost fruits and vegetables, and they should also have access to vegetarian entree options.”

Brendan Brazier has an exclusive interview with VegNews on all the details of how actor Hugh Jackman got in touch with him for some advice on training on a vegan diet and how Jackman agreed to write the foreward for the vegan triathlete and supplement creator’s latest edition of his book Thrive.

“In the past he had eaten a lot of chicken for his role, but he took a lot of Vega, too. It turned out I was going to New York City so he said “well why don’t you just come over,” so I went over to his place and we had a great chat and he told me how he was trying out veganism for environmental and health reasons and to set a good example for his kids. It’s not just for his own career anymore, which he wrote in the forward. He was listing the reasons why he was interested in Thrive, and he was concerned for the environment. That’s definitely something that he was aware of, and wanted to help instead of hurt.”

Hugh Jackman Hot N Cold On Vegan Despite Brazier Book Foreword

Written by Vegetarian Star on Tuesday, September 7th, 2010 in Actors, Food & Drink, Not So Vegetarian.

Hugh Jackman is one confusing vegan wannabe/chicken eater.

Jackman wrote a foreword to one of vegan triathlete Brendan Brazier‘s books that contained the line, “there’s every chance that I will be a vegan by the time you read…”–crediting veganism for helping him put on lean muscle before filming X Men Origins:Wolverine in 2009.

Fast forward to today, Jackman’s reps confirm he is not a vegan.

However, what’s even more confusing is that at a press conference for the movie, Jackman emphasized that his ripped body had nothing to do with pea and hemp protein.

Hugh Jackman Climate Change Kick Off Can Prompt Diet Change

X-Men Origins: Wolverine Japan Premiere

Actor Hugh Jackman is set to kick start Climate Week NYC on Monday, September 21st.

“I hope to be a voice for the billion people in developing countries who will be the hardest hit by changing weather patterns, by the droughts and floods that destroy their crops and threaten their food security,” Jackman said in a statement.

“Climate Week NYC provides an ideal forum to help underscore the urgency for world leaders to secure and fund an ambitious global climate change deal in Copenhagen that is effective, fair and binding.”

Wouldn’t it be great if Hugh also took a huge step in preventing climate change and cut back on meat?

If you recall, Hugh had said he ate copious amounts of chickens to build muscle for his role in X Men Origins: Wolverine.

“Let me tell you, I’m not vegan,” Hugh had said. “I ate so many chickens to make this body. If there is a place in hell for people who eat chickens, I have booked a suite bigger than anybody.”

Hugh might not eat as many chickens as he did then, but he has the ability to serve as an example of how more people can be fed (and improve the food security of developing nations) on plants and grains versus meat.

And any veggie environmentalist knows raising livestock for food is a huge blow to planet stability.

Kudos to Hugh for taking an interest in such a serious matter.

Hugh Jackman Can Redeem Chicken Sins At Detox Resort

In Austria, the Viva Mayr clinic exists, where celebrities flock to detox and lose weight.

The intensive seven day programs costs anywhere from $2,500 to $5,000 a week and replace sugar, caffeine, and alcohol with gourmet vegetarian meals and various pampering and luxury offers.

A similar program exists in Australia called Gwinganna.

Stars like Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, and Hugh Jackman have taken part in these “detox” sessions.

Oh, yes. Hugh Jackman.

Is this where the X Men star goes to purify himself from the chicken farm he consumes when he’s interested in getting buffed for a film?

If you recall, Hugh told reporters he consumed a lot of chicken to put on extra muscle for his Wolverine role.

“Let me tell you, I’m not vegan. I ate so many chickens to make this body. If there is a place in hell for people who eat chickens, I have booked a suite bigger than anybody.”

Of course, Hugh could have checked out Vega, completely plant based vegan protein bars, protein powders, and other supplements.

There are chickens in hell, waiting for him to arrive, so they can force feed him a liquid diet of Smoothie Infusion.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine screening
Hugh Jackson needed to get buffed up for his role as Wolverine in the new X-Men movie.

So what did he start eating a zillion times a day? Lots of pasta? Hemp protein powder? Not exactly. That’s why he definitely wants you to know he’s not vegan.

He was recently in Hollywood getting his hands and footprints immortalized in the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, when he told a reporter of his dieting plan.

“Let me tell you, I’m not vegan. I ate so many chickens to make this body. If there is a place in hell for people who eat chickens, I have booked a suite bigger than anybody.”

Say hello to Colonel KFC for us, Hugh.
