“I hung out with Leonardo DiCaprio when I moved to New York. He was vegetarian and he’d talk about how dirty meat is and how bad factory farming is.”

“I haven’t eaten red meat in 20 years and although Leo’s not totally responsible he definitely planted a seed.”

Leonardo DiCaprio has donated $1 million dollars to the World Wildlife Fund, a conservation organization that has been working to protect species and their habitats for almost five decades.

The money donated by DiCaprio is to help save tigers, a species the WWF estimates only 3,200 exist in the wild, compared to 100,000 a hundred years ago.

DiCaprio also attended the five day conference in St. Petersburg, Russia, the International Forum on Tiger Conservation, designed to create a plan to stop activities that are responsible for the animals’ decline, such as poaching and destruction of habitat.

“Illegal poaching of tigers for their parts and massive habitat loss due to palm oil, timber and paper production are driving this species to extinction,” said DiCaprio.

Pamela’s vanilla-coconut-pineapple blend will be appropriately titled the “Pamela Anderson.”

Pamela told Millions of Milkshakes:

“I am working very hard and having the time of my life on Dancing with the Stars – I have made some great new friends and tried to learn some cool new steps – but I did want to take a few minutes to prove that one can create a truly delicious treat without having to rely on any animal products in the process. It is going to be a Vegan Vanilla Coconut Pineapple shake! I’ve always liked to shake things up so I’m thrilled to create the first vegan item on the menu – and at the same time I hope to get to meet some fans and to thank everyone for their support and their votes.”

Bar Refaeli, Leonardo DiCaprio Shop At Whole Foods

2009 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - Arrivals

Update 2/28/09: We are so sad to learn that Bar is NOT a vegetarian. Although a few sources said she was, as of now, we learn she admits to eating a cheeseburger and fries once a week. Boo! 

The rumored vegetarian model and girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio, Bar Refaeli, was spotted shopping with her man Leo at Whole Foods.

The two packed the groceries on the back of Leo’s motorcycle.

If case you’ve forgotten (but don’t see how you could have), Bar is the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit hottie.

Many of our favorite veg celebs have been spotted at Whole Foods (possibly picking up organic vegetables from China), including Milo Ventimiglia, Stella McCartney, and Anne Hathaway.

Erykah Badu joked it was so expensive to shop there, you had to have a record deal to do so. With the amount of money Bar rakes in from showing off her bod, it’s safe to assume recording artists and models can afford to shop there. 

You can view pic of Bar and Leo with their groceries at Popsugar.
