Glee’s star Lea Michele was featured in an article on UsMagazine.com, attributing Michele’s lean figure to a vegan diet. Michele says that she went vegan after reading Skinny Bitch. In the June issue of Women’s Health, Michele says that coming from an Italian family, eliminating animal products wasn’t easy, but in the end, her family was supportive. The star told Us Weekly that she’s happy now to be in a position to support animal rights by working with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). “The fact that I have the opportunity to speak out about the things that I believe in and that maybe someone will listen, I feel, is the biggest honor,” she said.
