Ellen and Portia Go Vegan

I try to avoid reading celebrity news at all costs so maybe I’m the very last person on earth to know. But it’s cool news that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have gone vegan, even if the article I’ve linked to is anti-vegan and irritating.

The piece does feature this terrific quote from Portia:

We are just both very happy. It feels like such a compassionate choice. We are such animal lovers, why stop short of cows and chickens? It didn’t make any sense. When Ellen and I first got together I was wearing fur and Ellen was wearing very expensive Italian calfskin leather. She was giving me a hard time about wearing the fur and I said, ‘Why is a fox any more important than a cow?’ We took that idea and went all the way with it. We are doing what we can.

Nicely said. Link.
