Michelle Pfeiffer Discusses Veganism with CNN

The actress tells the popular news network that her plant-based diet was inspired in part by Bill Clinton.

Actress Michelle Pfeiffer is the newest celebrity to go vegan, according to her interview that aired last night on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight. The 54-year-old beauty tells Dr. Sanjay Gupta—who interviewed former president Bill Clinton about his plant-based diet last August—that it was the health special “The Last Heart Attack” that inspired her to forgo meat and dairy. She cites Clinton’s tenaciousness, love of food, and intelligence as the indicators that led her to trust his judgment, and she also took into consideration her own family’s history of cancer. “I just felt like … there was science [behind] it,” she tells Gupta. “It was sort of irrefutable.” Pfeiffer also says that she has enjoyed the diet thus far and is encouraging her longtime husband David E. Kelley to follow suit.
