Usually, when it comes to plant-based diet, it is easy to imagine its adherents – Hollywood actresses or lean models, ready to do anything in order to remain their beauty. In fact, veganism appeals and attracts people of different sizes and shapes – when you look at some of them you, probably, won’t guess that they do not eat meat, milk and eggs.
Actor Samuel L. Jackson, star of the film The Hateful Eight and other films directed by Quentin Tarantino, also keeps a vegan diet. The 67-year-old Afro-american confesses that he doesn’t eat meat or drink milk – and it’s good for his health.
Samuel L. Jackson switched to a vegan diet to improve his health and “live forever”. It was reported by one famous vegetarian portal.
Samuel L. Jackson said that he decided to completely abandon eating meat, meat products and milk due to two reasons. According to the actor, his age was the first point that prompted him such idea, and the desire to stay healthy as long as possible was the second one.
You know, he, actually, wants to live forever, he really wants to live forever, for example, in order to fully fulfill his big contract with Marvel. That was what the actor explained about his decision.
How long will Samuel Jackson follow the vegan’s diet, time will show. Despite the large number of vegetarians and vegans among Hollywood stars, most of them belong to those who keep vegetable eating habits like a fashionable phenomenon, rather than a serious choice.
However, there are exceptions. For example, a director James Cameron and actors Casey Affleck, Joaquin Phoenix are really convinced vegetarians.
Samuel’s doctor said that if he did not follow vegan diet, Jackson did not manage to improve his general health condition. Veganism helped Samuel to stabilize blood pressure and lower cholesterol level.
