The famed director's vegan daughter Harley Quinn Smith confirmed that her father—who recently had a massive heart attack—has gone vegan and loves Veggie Grill's nachos.

Vegan actress Harley Quinn Smith—daughter of famed Clerks director Kevin Smith—confirmed this week that her father has gone vegan. “He's doing really, really great,” Harley Quinn Smith told New York Post publication Page Six column. “He's the healthiest he's ever been. He's vegan now, which is amazing.” Kevin Smith recently dined at vegan chain Veggie Grill, and Harley Quinn Smith stated that “he had the vegan nachos and loved them."
