Michelle Pfeiffer Makes the Vegan Switch!

The number of A-list stars adopting the healthy and compassionate lifestyle just keeps on growing! They include Ozzy Osbourne, Kristin Bell, Russell Brand, Ellen Degeneres and Ben Stiller.

One of the newest celebrities to talk about their new vegan diet is Michelle Pfeiffer.

Pfeiffer, 54, recently opened up to Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN about her decision to become a vegan to protect her health.

“My father died from cancer, and the older you get, there’s a lot of disease around you. And you see people struggling with chronic disease. You see people dying with terminal illnesses,” she told Gupta on “Piers Morgan Tonight.”

The Oscar-nominated actress revealed that her decision came about after watching CNN’s “The Last Heart Attack,” which discussed plant-based diets as a solution to preventing chronic diseases. She was inspired by Bill Clinton, who committed to the plant-based diet to reverse dangerous heart problems.  A self-proclaimed “foodie,” Pfeiffer said she was hopeful seeing his example. “Okay, Bill Clinton loves food, so there must be something to [veganism] that’s making him stick to it. And also, he’s smart, so he’s not going to do something unless he really thinks there’s some science behind it.”

She also read Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease: The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-Based Cure.

“I just felt like…there was science behind it. And, you know, it was sort of irrefutable. … I couldn’t not listen to it.”

Pfeiffer’s #2 reason for the new diet? “Vanity is right under there,” she admits, “but I have to say that it’s a close second with wanting to live long.”

Bravo Michelle Pfeiffer, on your most wise and glamorous decision to be vegan!

There are lots of veg starter kits and recipes online for all folks, famous or not.
