Known for her animal advocacy in addition to her film and television work in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Veronica Mars respectively, actress Kristen Bell has announced in a new interview with Women’s Health that she and her fiancé Dax Shepard have committed to a vegan lifestyle. Bell, a vegetarian since age 11, tells Women’s Health that she made the decision to forgo eggs and dairy after watching the documentary Forks Over Knives, the same film that inspired other celebrities such as Russell Brand and Ozzy Osbourne to adopt plant-based diets. “It’s more about the health benefits than the ethics, but it’s compounded by the fact that I love animals and feel better not eating them,” she shares in the interview.
