Casey Affleck on Veganism

Casey Affleck is vegan? Wow, I'm out of the loop with pop culture. Anyway, I came across the following video of him on YouTube, explaining why he is vegan.



I already liked his acting, but now he's even cooler. Is his brother vegan too?

Ben's not a vegan. Casey went vegan a long time ago when he was first dating his now wife, summer phoenix (little sister to river and joaquin - the entire family is vegan).

I wish Casey would get some of his really popular pals like George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon to choose more compassionate lifestyles...

I think Brad Pitt is vegetarian, isn't he?

Billy said...

Definitely. I wish Matt Damon was vegan...he's awesome. I just saw We Own The Night with Joaquin Phoenix. I try and watch every movie with him and Mark Wahlberg.

Nicki: yes, I believe Brad Pitt is veg.

holy crap!

so I just checked all the 'reliable' sources like happycow and IVU and brad pitt IS a vegetarian (woah!)

Billy said...

Yup, now we just need Matt Damon and a few other cool ones. Leonardo Dicaprio is awesome.

now if angelina jolie and their whole huge family were veg that would make them an even more kick ass family

Haha, definitely, that would be great.

I wish vegetarian/vegan celebrities would take more advantage of their positions and speak about animal rights.

I love Casey Affleck... I was SO rooting for him to win an Oscar!

Yes, he's great. I love his brother as well, though Matt Damon is my favorite. I've seen Good Will Hunting too many times to remember.
