Alan Cumming Talks Vegan Food with Anderson Cooper

The Scottish actor visited Cooper’s show and discussed his transition to veganism last year.

On New Year’s Day, Anderson Cooper kicked off 2013 by hosting Emmy-nominated vegan actor Alan Cumming, even sharing meat-free chicken tenders with the star and his co-host Jill Martin, Vegetarian Star reports. Cumming announced his commitment to veganism on Twitter just more than a year ago, inspired by boxer Mike Tyson, and told Cooper that his New Year’s Resolution is to get fitter. According to Vegetarian Star, Cooper shared that he had also considered adopting a vegan diet, but that he struggled with breaking his eating habits as he typically dines on the same dishes every single day.
