Jesse Eisenberg Humane Society Video To Protect Exotic Birds

Jesse Eisenberg

Jesse Eisenberg has recorded a PSA for the Humane Society of the United States that advises against buying exotic birds in stores.

Eisenberg had the opportunity to voice the character of a Macaw in Rio, a film about the trafficking of exotic birds and the destruction of their natural habitats.

“If an animal’s natural home is in the wild, then chances are, that’s where it belongs,” Eisenberg said. “Unfortunately, the demand for these intelligent, complex creatures—whether captive-bred or wild caught—is decimating the wild parrot species.”

Social Network’s Jesse Eisenberg Almost Throws Punches Over Vegetarianism

Written by Vegetarian Star on Friday, September 24th, 2010 in Actors, Food & Drink, Videos.

Don’t let the baby face fool you. Jesse Eisenberg would have thrown a few punches in the name of vegetarianism if some paranoid, unsocial suspecting vegetarian would’ve kept up his attitude about being asked questions about the meatless lifestyle.

The actor who plays Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network said he almost got into a fight with someone on the subway just because the guy said vegetariansim was a personal question.

“I got in a fight with somebody on the subway once because I asked if they were a vegetarian, and he said that was too personal, and I got angry,” Eisenberg told Popeater.

Woody Harrelson “Zombieland” Vegan Twinkie

Written by Vegetarian Star on Sunday, October 4th, 2009 in Actors, Film & TV, Food & Drink.

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?

Jesse Einseberg “Zombieland” Follows Woody Harrelson Veg Lead

Written by Vegetarian Star on Friday, October 2nd, 2009 in Actors, Film & TV, Food & Drink.

"Zombieland" Chicago Premiere

Jesse Eisenberg plays Columbus, Woody Harrelson‘s character Tallahassee‘s sidekick in Zombieland, as the two find creative ways to survive in a world run by zombies.

Eisenberg realizes good nutrition is essential even if you’re not hiding from zombies in an amusement park, so he takes Woody’s advice and follows a vegetarian diet like his co-star.

“I’ve admired him for many years,” Eisenberg said. “I work with a few animal rights organizations, I’ve been vegetarian for five years and I was vegan for a year. I’m not a vegan right now, but when we were filming I ate all the same food he ate.”

Of course, the whole zombie plague happened because of bad hamburgers, you know.

“At first, we weren’t sure if people would be interested in knowing the back story. And then we did the test screenings of it and realized people actually want to know where it came from.”

“So the final verdict is that it’s now like a mad cow disease. It came from contaminated hamburger, which is good because it has some kind of possible practical implications toward the food industry. Woody is really happy with that because he’s a strict vegan.”

The next time you drive by a burger joint, watch out.

Woody Harrelson Convinced Zombieland Director To Go Vegetarian

Written by Vegetarian Star on Tuesday, July 28th, 2009 in Actors, Directors and Producers.

Zombieland panel at the San Diego Comic Con in CA

Woody Harrelson converted someone to vegetarianism, if only temporary.

During the filming of an upcoming film, Zombieland, Woody convinced director Ruben Fleischer to eat vegetarian during the duration of the shoot.

“The script is fantastic,” Jesse Einsenberg, who plays Columbus, told altpress.com. “Of course the premise is silly-there’s no way to describe it without sounding silly-but the script is great. It’s really wonderful and unique, and the characters are fantastic. Woody Harrelson is in it, and the director agreed to become a vegetarian for the duration of the shoot because Woody Harrelson is vegan.”

And let’s give it up for the environmentally friendly set.

“The set is pretty eco-friendly, actually. We recycle a lot onset, which is good, because movies are a very wasteful industry.”

Zombieland is set to the premise that after America is ravaged by a zombie plague, the few lone survivors run from the living dead, arriving at a theme park they believe to be safe.
