Vegans often argue that by taking on the cruelty-free diet we are going to live longer, have better sex and ultimately be happier. While it’s true, actress Portia de Rossi is living proof that a vegan diet will bring about a youthful glow even as we creep into our middle years. For the Arrested Development star – which returns in May with their fourth season – being vegan for the past 6 years has enabled her to maintain that look and edge that other actors and actresses fail to keep.
In her shoot for People’s most beautiful list, de Rossi said, “I’m vegan. it’s really changed, like, my eyes, my, you know, everything.”
It is great to see de Rossi and others showing off how a vegan diet is changing how they perceive the world, their bodies and their mental capacity. While we knew the statistics already pointed in this direction, having people like her speaking out on behalf of vegans is amazing.
She’s not the only one who has spoken out on the greatness of a vegan diet. Jared Leto earlier this year said: “I’m pretty healthy so I think that helps a lot. I’ve been that way for a long time – 20 solid years of eating vegetarian/vegan and taking care of myself. That probably helps the preservation process.”
