Elle Magazine: Why 12 Female Celebs Are Vegan

World’s best-selling fashion mag highlights famous women’s reasons for being vegan—from animals and the environment to health and beauty.

Elle, the world’s best-selling fashion magazine, posted an article on its website entitled “12 Famous Vegan Women And Their Reasoning Behind The Lifestyle” that provides dietary insights from a variety of female celebrities. For singer Ariana Grande, actress Natalie Portman, and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, the lifestyle change stemmed from ethical reasons. The latter went vegan after watching the documentary Earthlings, which includes undercover footage from inside factory farms. “You just see that, and you go, I can’t participate in that,” she told Katie Couric. “I can’t be a part of something that is suffering.” Pop superstar Miley Cyrus told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that she went vegan because she recognized the intelligence of her pet pig and blowfish, actress Ellen Page cites both animals and the environment as her reasons for being vegan, while British singer Ellie Goulding’s main reason for being vegan is health and fitness.
