Top 50 Most Famous Vegan Celebrities

Top 50 Most Popular Vegan Celebrities


To be a vegan means to consume only plant-based foods and reject all animal-based foods, including dairy products. This type of diet can be considered to be a healthier and eco-friendly option as compared to non-vegetarian food choices.


It is also protective of animals and animal rights. Veganism is not just about the food we eat but also a lifestyle choice as one has to be conscious about the foods, brands, and clothes they use and promote.


It is a movement meant to promote animal rights and is supported by major animal rights groups like PETA, WWF, etc. As the vegan lifestyle is gaining more popularity across the world, we also see many celebrities endorsing and promoting this way of life.


Many of them also extol the health benefits of this simple diet where it is easy to digest while also getting all the necessary nutrients that the body needs. Many famous Hollywood stars and musicians like Natalie Portman, Joaquin Phoenix, Ariana Grande, etc. have adopted this lifestyle early into their careers.


However, there are also quite a few celebs who have ditched the vegan lifestyle after a while due to various reasons. Some of them are Samuel L. Jackson, Channing Tatum, Miley Cyrus, Ellen Degeneres, etc.
