Who are the famous vegetarians? From your favorite movie star, musician, scientist and artists; the list of vegetarians is longer than you think. Here are some favorites:
Socrates: "Thou should eat to live; not live to eat."
Hippocrates: "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food."
Plato: "The Gods created certain kinds of beings to replenish our bodies; they are the trees and the plants and the seeds."
Leonardo Da Vinci: "My body will not be a tomb for other creatures." He also said: "The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men."
Albert Einstein: "Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of survival for life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet."
Bill Clinton - "The way we consume food and what we consume are driving up health care costs to unaffordable levels. You have to make a conscious decision to change for your own well-being, and that of your family and your country.”
Pamela Anderson - “People who wear fur smell like a wet dog if they’re in the rain. And they look fat and gross.”
Alicia Silverstone - I don't have any understanding of a human being who doesn't respect the beauty of life and that goes for all creatures that have thoughts, feelings and needs.
Shania Twain - I think there's something odd about eating another living anything.
Alyssa Milano - I turned vegetarian after 9/11. A friend of mine came back from New York and said that he couldn't stand the smell of burnt flesh. It immediately reminded me of a barbecue.
Jessica Alba - I think that people who don't like animals tend to be selfish, but I'm biased.
Carmen Electra - It's sad. That's a living creature. We don't have the right to take their life away for fashion.
Clint Eastwood - I take vitamins daily, but just the bare essentials not what you'd call supplements. I try to stick to a vegan diet heavy on fruit, vegetables, tofu, and other soy products.
Paul McCartney - When I see bacon, I see a pig, I see a little friend, and that's why I can't eat it. Simple as that.
