Emily Deschanel On Ellen

Bones starlet Emily Deschanel dishes about the show’s 100th episode and vegan cupcakes with Ellen DeGeneres.

Yesterday, vegan actress Emily Deschanel appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to share what it was like filming the 100th episode of her television show Bones. Deschanel explained that the cast was presented with a celebratory cake made of Styrofoam to pose next to for a photo opportunity, but as a cruelty-free celebrity, she was already prepared with vegan cupcakes set aside for the occasion. When ask by host Ellen DeGeneres why she went vegan more than 17 years ago, Deschanel responded that seeing the film Diet for a New America, based on the John Robbins book, made the decision a no-brainer. DeGeneres discussed her own transition to veganism with the starlet, saying that it's the best decision for health and the planet.
