Portia de Rossi’s Vegan A-Ha

Portia de Rossi discusses her veganism with O, The Oprah Magazine.

Actress Portia de Rossi discusses her veganism and the “a-ha!” moment that made her realize a plant-based diet was right for her in an interview with O, The Oprah Magazine. She explains that after she and her partner Ellen DeGeneres moved to a farm in California, she was inspired by the animals they kept to stop ranking some animals as OK to eat while others were not. De Rossi soon went vegan and hasn’t looked back. “Now I don’t judge other beings that way—every animal has its own intelligence and sensitivities,” she said. “They’re all lovely, worthwhile, and deserving of our respect.”
