Comedian James Corden Ditches Meat

The Late Late Show host is eliminating meat from his diet after learning about animal cruelty in the food industry.

Comedian James Corden—host of The Late Late Show—recently began to transition to a meatless diet. The funnyman explained his aspiration to adopt a vegetarian diet in a recent interview with Radio Times. “At Christmas, I read a story about the mistreatment of elephants and realised I was upset about animal welfare while eating a bacon sandwich,” Corden said. "I thought, ‘Well, you really can't be upset about elephants and not think about the pigs.’ I hope I can keep it up. I will certainly try.” Corden revealed that his new “vice” is bread and that he is currently working to remove seafood from his diet. “I'm going to try to phase out fish next,” Corden said. “It's going to be a gradual process.” Corden joins a growing list of celebrities that have taken a stance against animal agriculture by adjusting their diets, including Star Wars’ star Thandie Newton who recently adopted a plant-based diet with the help of vegan co-star Woody Harrelson.
