James Cameron

Around 2010, Oscar-winning director James Cameron began an all-vegan diet. A long-time environmental advocate, Cameron made the change explicitly to help save the planet, namely by lowering his carbon footprint, but also found that it also drastically improved his health, what he calls “a win-win.” Cameron tells  Men’s Journal:

“The great thing about this as a solution for climate change — one of a number of solutions that we need — is that it’s a win-win. You’re going to be healthier, you’re going to live longer, you’re going to look better. You’re going to have fewer zits. You’re going to be slimmer. You’re going to radiate health. You’re going to have a better sex drive. That’s what shifting away from meat and dairy does.

My whole family did this, and we’re doing spectacularly well from a health standpoint. I have not had a single sniffle, not the flu, not a cold, nothing that’s taken me offline as much as an hour in three and a half years. Now, that’s either the biggest, craziest, statistical anomaly in history, or there’s a strong causal relationship with this profound diet change that we did.”

Woody Harrelson

Vegan actor Woody Harrelson credits his plant-based diet for his high energy levels. In an interview with  In Style in the days leading up to the 2018 film “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” in which Harrelson played Beckett, he said, “I eat vegan, but I mostly eat raw. If I have a cooked meal, I feel my energy drop. So when I first started shifting my diet, it wasn’t as much a moral or an ethical pursuit but an energetic pursuit.”

The 57-year-old star previously encouraged actor Liam Hemsworth and “Stranger Things” star Sadie Sink to go vegan. Harrelson is also the owner of the world’s first organic vegan beer garden.

Jessica Chastain

Jessica's the daughter of a vegan chef, and the apple didn't fall too far from the tree. The actress has been vegan for more than a decade.Golden-globe winner and Oscar-nominated Jessica Chastain, who is best known for her roles in movies such asThe Help, Zero Dark Thirty, Tree of Life, Interstellar,and more, has been vegan since 2007 and shows no sign of slowing down.

Earlier this year, she  shared with W Magazine that while she was a pescatarian for years and loved cheese, she went vegan because she was, “really low on energy.”

“… I found myself going to veganism because a friend of mine had a two-week vegan food delivery program she wasn’t going to use so I used it, and immediately I just had more energy than I’ve ever had in my life…” Chastain said. “…I said okay, I’m going to just listen to my body now. Being vegan was not anything I ever wanted to be. I just really was listening to what my body was telling me.”

For Chastain, however, her activism didn’t just end with turning to a plant-based diet. She recently shared with People Magazine that she has “adopted every animal I’ve ever had” and that she tries to only choose red carpet looks that are cruelty-free.

Natalie Portman

Portman is a longtime, outspoken vegan She isn’t one to wag a finger, but she wants you to take another look at the food you’re eating.

Her latest project, Eating Animals, had its New York premiere at IFC, and with it, she, director Christopher Quinn, and the source material’s author-turned-film’s producer Jonathan Safran Foer hope to pull back the curtain on the food-production and factory-farming industries and to wake consumers up to not just what they’re putting in their bodies, but to the animal abuse and environmental trauma to which they’re complicit.

It was Foer’s 2009 book that first inspired Portman, a vegetarian since age nine, to fully embrace veganism seven years ago. She hopes her film, which she co-produced and narrates, has a similar impact.

Pamela Anderson

Pamela Anderson is a Canadian American actress and model. Anderson is best known for her roles on the television seriesHome Improvement, BaywatchandV.I.P. after rising to fame as Playmate of the Month for Playboy magazine in February 1990. Anderson had also appeared in films such asRaw Justice (1994),Barb Wire (1996) andBlonde and Blonder (2008) and was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame in 2006.

TheBaywatch star became a vegetarian in her early teens when she saw her father cleaning an animal he had hunted. Since then, she has become a vegan and an animal advocate, supporting many animal charities and starting her own not-for-profit group - The Pamela Anderson Foundation, devoted to advancing human, environmental and animal rights.

Anderson is an activist for the animal rights movement and has conducted campaigns condemning the commercial fur industry and promoting veganism through the animal rights organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
