Healthy or not, the vegan lifestyle has hit Hollywood with a bang!

But all said and done, there are many Holloywood celebs who swear by this routine and have managed to steer clear of meat and animal products. Here’s our list of top 6 famous vegans!

Alicia Silverstone. Alicia Silverstone credits her 10 on 10 figure to a vegan diet, what she calls a 'Kind diet.' She's even written a book about the diet, in which she talks about the diet's organic nature and complete vegan philosophy. Alicia labels foods like white sugar, meat and dairy - 'nasty' and advocates following the kind diet to promote healthy living and quick weight loss.
Pamela Anderson. Pamela Anderson said that a vegan lifestyle helped her tackle Hepatitis C, at the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) 30th anniversary celebration in Hollywood, Calif. "I always feel healthy, but I feel better," she said. A strong PEAT supporter, Pamela's veganism is a lifestyle as well as dietary choice.
Sandra Oh. Yes, it may be a bit hard to believe but this Grey's Anatomy star is a pure vegan. Sandra first started eating vegan when her Grey's Anatomy cast-mates took her out to vegan restaurants between the show shoots. And soon this act was convincing enough for her to go green.
