Woody Harrelson


In a recent interview with Maxim magazine, longtime vegan animal defender Woody Harrelson talks about the chance encounter that made him go vegan. He says that “[t]he first thing was dairy. I was about 24 years old and I had tons of acne and mucus. I met some random girl on a bus who told me to quit dairy and all those symptoms would go away three days later. By God she was right.”

I’m curious about how the actual conversation went down. “Hey, stranger! Your skin is gross. Go vegan!” seems a bit harsh, but if it worked …

The star of Zombieland then realized that eating hamburgers and steak made him feel—and act—like the living dead, so meat was nixed from his menu too.

So tell us: How did you get the push you needed to go vegan?
