Film Production


Plant-based actors, filmmakers, comedians and more

Celebrities are using their platforms to educate others about the benefits of plant-based eating for the planet and all the Earth’s inhabitants.


Natalie Portman

Actress, plant-based since 2011:

"I’m here to say, it is always a great thing to care … whether it’s environmental issues, animal rights, women’s rights, equality, never be afraid to show how much you care."

Liam Hemsworth

Actor, plant-based since 2015:

“There are no negatives to eating like this. I feel nothing but positive, mentally and physically. I love it. I feel like it also has a kind of a domino effect on the rest of my life.”

James Cameron

Filmmaker, plant-based for several years:

"I want to challenge all of you as people of deep conscience, people who are environment stewards of the earth and oceans... by changing what you eat, you will change the entire contract between the human species and the natural world.”

Jessica Chastain

Actress, plant-based since 2008:

"I mean I've always had some problems, like my cholesterol was very high and the doctor wanted to put me on medicine. I said that seems crazy! This was like 12 years ago, so yeah, I was in my 20s, and I thought I don't want to start taking cholesterol pills."

Joaquin Phoenix

Actor, plant-based since 1977:

"It takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal."

Woody Harrelson

Actor, plant-based for 30+ years:

“Really my message is simple. It's a message of compassion. In this world that is spinning madly out of control, we have to realize that we’re all related. We have to try to live harmoniously.”

Kate Mara

Actress, plant-based since 2015:

"Don't punish yourself for having cravings or not being perfect all the time. Changing your lifestyle can take time and I've seen many people try to change too quickly and then give up because it was too difficult. The more we educate ourselves on where our food comes from (and what it took to get to our plates) the more thoughtful and considerate we should be in the choices we make."

Emily Deschanel

Actress, plant-based for 25 years:

"Looking a certain way does not motivate me. But being healthy, being kind to animals, being kind to our environment, to me, that’s the thing that motivates me the most."

Zac Efron

Actor, plant-based since 2018:

“I've been experimenting with eating purely vegan. That's completely changed the way that my body works, and the way that I metabolize food, the way it turns into energy, the way that I sleep. It's been brilliant. It's been great for my exercise, and great for my routine."

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Actor, plant-based since 2018:

“I stay away more from the meats and more from animal products, and animal proteins, because there was this misconception that that’s the only way you get big and strong, so now I back off that and I feel much better.”

Alicia Silverstone

Actress, plant-based since 1998:

"I think it’s great that people are coming out with alternatives to animal products--there are so many amazing ones! I love things like Heidi Ho Chevre, Field Roast Sausages, Vegenaise, and Earth Balance Butter—which are mind-blowingly yum—but I personally like to keep my diet as close to the earth as possible. So while these options are tasty—and so much better than animal foods—they are not part of my regular diet."
