    Venus Williams almost retired from tennis after she was diagnosed with the autoimmune disase Sjögren's syndrome. The complicated disease caused the tennis champion to withdraw from the 2011 US Open during the second round because of various pains and fatigue. She needed to take time off from the grueling sport. Williams went to a raw vegan diet and was able to get back on the court. She explained her dietary decision and how it changed her life: 

    I started for health reasons. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, and I wanted to maintain my performance on the court. Once I started I fell in love with the concept of fueling your body in the best way possible. Not only does it help me on the court, but I feel like I’m doing the right thing for me.

    Russell Brand and then-wife Katy Perry announced in 2011 that they switched to a vegan diet after watching the documentary Forks Over Knives. The comedian/actor left the vegan lifestyle after a few years but made a return in 2019. The Brit has been a vegetarian since the age of 14. 

    He tweeted, "I've been baking like a maniac ever since. And I'm vegan now (again). #StandUpToCancer #GBBO @BritishBakeOff."

    When Alicia Siliverstone was 21 years old, she watched a documentary about how animals are slaughtered. It was enough to make the young actress give up eating meat. She recalled:

    I just took a look at my dog and said, "If I'm not willing to eat you, how can I continue to eat these other creatures that have the same desire to live, are just as funny, just as cute as my dogs?"

    The decision to become vegan may have initially been an ethical one for Silverstone, but it also dramatically improved her health. She suffered from bad asthma and insomnia as a teenager. After going vegan, the Clueless star says that she now sleeps wells, keeps extra pounds off, and has a lot of energy. Silverstone published a vegan cookbook, The Kind Diet, in 2009. 

  • Zac Efron on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    Zac Efron sees his imperfections, even if the rest of the world does not. In order to keep his matinee idol looks and chiseled abs, Efron decided to experiment with a plant-based diet. The result of the dietary transition has been life-changing for the leading man:

    Just like everyone else, I wake up, look in the mirror, and I see the imperfections and the bags under my eyes, and think, "Oh, man, is this really the best I've ever looked? I'm getting older? What the heck?" Recently what I've started doing is searching for the cure inside that's causing the symptoms of what I'm getting on the outside. Getting more sleep has really taken away the bags under my eyes, so I don't need to worry about it as much. There are other lifestyle changes - 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.

  • Natalie Portman on Random Famous People Recount The Moment They Became Vegan

    Jonathan Safran Foer's book, Eating Animals, had a huge impact on Natalie Portman. The actress not only went from vegetarian to vegan after reading the 2009 bestseller about the detriments of industry farming and animal abuse, but also helped to adapt the novel into a 2017 documentary of the same name. Portman served as co-producer and narrator on the project. She was pregnant with her son when she decided to remove dairy and eggs from her diet: 

    When I read the book, that was what made me become a vegan. I think until then, I had thought, "Oh, with eggs and dairy, you’re not [harming] animals. It’s just their natural byproducts." But when I started learning about the conditions - and the environmental effect of all these animals and the impact on humans of having large groups of sick animals together, it really made me want to change immediately.

    The Academy Award-winning actress has also become a voice for the vegan lifestyle. She often publicly talks about both the health benefits and positive environmental impact the switch to a plant-based diet has on an individual and the rest of the world. Portman believes that it's now easier than ever to switch to a vegan diet: 

    I feel like there’s a lot more vegetarian and vegan places opening all the time. I mean, in LA, we’re spoiled - but even in New York. And places like Shake Shack have a vegetarian option now. It’s obviously something that consumers are demanding more. Things like the Impossible Burger and Kite Hill cheese and Van Leeuwen’s vegan ice cream, those things pop up and create really incredible alternatives. People don’t feel like they’re sacrificing anything. They can still have delicious food and not be harming the planet.

    Rapper will.i.am decided in late 2017 that it was time to drop all animal products from his diet. The Black Eyed Peas singer credits a trip to the doctor's office for his switch to a vegan diet. The musician said that he initially went to the doctor because he had a cough that would not go away. During the visit, the doctor told him that he had high cholesterol.

    He knew that the life of a traveling musician contributed to his poor diet. After going vegan, the singer went from 210 pounds to 188 pounds. He credits his doctor with helping him and saving the lives of his friend and others:

    I talk to my doctor all the time, he helped save my best friend’s life. Taboo in the Black Eyed Peas had testicular cancer which he fought and beat, he helped Lance Armstrong, and he helped keep Steve Jobs alive for as long as he could.
