Octavia Spencer Ready for Jessica Chastain to Get Time to Cook Vegan Soul Food

Published by Michelle Kretzer.

One celeb who won’t mind too much when awards season winds down? Octavia Spencer. She loves cheering for her friend Jessica Chastain, but she’s getting antsy for her The Help costar to cook her some more vegan soul food like the vegan fried chicken they made on set. Jessica, one of PETA’s reigning Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities, has been scooping up the nominations, so to tide Octavia over, we’ve sent her her own vegan soul-food cookbook. Maybe soon the friends will be comparing vegan recipes and Oscars?

They can scoop up Robin Quivers‘ new vegan cookbook, The Vegucation of Robin: How Real Food Saved My Life. Or perhaps they’ll take their happy reunion to Chef Tal Ronnen’s new vegan restaurant and bar, Crossroads, opening in L.A.

Hilaria and Alec Baldwin are also celebrating an exciting new venture. The couple is expecting their first child in late summer. PETA is sending the vegan mom an early shower gift: a copy of Skinny Bitch Bun in the Oven

And at just 15 years old, pop prince Greyson Chance thinks it’s time he gave meat-free eating a chance. When he posted to Twitter, “first day of being a vegetarian. can I do this?” his fans responded in droves with words of encouragement. We think that we know a few more folks who might be cheering Greyson on:

When animals weren’t getting “tweet outs” on Twitter, they were getting major ups from Maggie Q in The Huffington Post. The Nikita star spent the majority of her interview talking about her new PETA campaign titled, “Fight Climate Change With Diet Change—Go Veg,” and detailing the environmental destruction and cruelty of the meat industry. If Maggie ever decides to get out of acting, we think she’s got a future in animal rights.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
