Stranger Things Star Dishes About Veganism

Matthew Modine shares his favorite vegan meals with People.

Star of hit Netflix Original show Stranger Things, Matthew Modine—who plays a villainous doctor—was featured on a recent video segment for People Magazine’s recurring web series “Sexiest Men in the Kitchen.” The actor and former professional chef has been vegan for 12 years, and revealed that some of his favorite dishes include zucchini pasta, mushroom-based meatless loaf, apple pie, and chocolate cake. “Chefs have gotten so good at making healthy, sinful food,” Modine says. “I think some vegan pastries are better than those with butter and sugar!” Fellow actors, including Bones star Emily Deschanel, Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch, and Juno star Ellen Page, all publicly advocate their vegan lifestyles.
