The Equalizer opens today, which means that everyone with a pulse will be eyeballing Denzel Washington this weekend. And to make hearts pitter-patter even more, Denzel went vegan to get fit for the role. “Yeah, last summer I went on a vegan diet just to try it and it was actually quite healthy,” he said in an interview with GQ. “I was a good weight. I’m not even completely back on meat even now.” Judging by how he looks in the trailer, we hope Denzel never goes back.
In other celebrity news:
- In a recent interview with People, Nikki Reed spilled the beans on her newest animal companion: “I’m on my way to pick up my new baby rat,” she gushed. The mom of two horses and five dogs continued, “Animals are my life. My mom and I built a guest house on my property so that my mom could help me fostering animals. I do multiple fosters a month.” You can’t help but love Nikki for keeping animals off the streets and off her plate.
- Scandal‘s Scott Foley is now a proud rescue parent, too. Scott, his wife, and their children just welcomed Lab mix Frankie into the family. PETA is welcoming Frankie to her new home, too, with a bundle of fun toys and treats.
- Entertainment Tonight named Tony Gonzalez the “Hot Rookie Reporter of the CBS Sports Team,” and to prove its point, the show displayed the former Atlanta Falcon’s naked PETA ad as well as some of the steamy behind-the-scenes video from the shoot. When he got the news, Tony was charmingly humble, but we think the evidence speaks for itself.
- Angelina Jolie and her new hubby, Brad Pitt, had already donated $2 million to a Namibian wildlife sanctuary, and now the famously fur-free lass is helping out wildlife again. Angelina will direct a new film, Africa, which focuses on the fight to protect the elephants of Kenya from dying at the hands of poachers.
