These Hot Vegan Guys Make Us Want to Re-Evaluate Our Diets

 —  By

Mmm, vegan guys. There’s something about their willingness to shun a juicy steak and a pair of leather shoes that’s just so…hot.

On top of not eating meat, poultry or fish, vegans also avoid the use of other animal-based products – anything from dairy products to eggs, leather and wool. And it’s something that seems to be catching on, with Jay Z and Beyonce just two of the most recent stars to make the switch.

And if anyone’s going to convince us to swap our burgers for a healthy slice of avocado on toast, we reckon these celebs, models and bloggers are the ones to do it. Veganism has never looked so good.

Actor Casey Affleck

Ben’s (hotter) younger brother has previously said: “When people ask me why I don’t eat meat or any other animal products, I say, ‘Because they are unhealthy and they are the product of a violent and inhumane industry.'” You go, Casey.

Not content with just impressing us with his words, poet Benjamin Zephaniah chooses to be a strict vegan. Not only that, he’s also an honorary patron of The Vegan Society.

He’s previously said: “Many of us live with companion animals such as dogs, cats, and rabbits. We share our homes with them, consider them members of the family and we grieve when they die. Yet we kill and eat other animals who, if you really think about it, are no different from the ones we love.”
