A former actress and stand up comedian, Ellen Degeneres is currently the host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She eats a mostly vegan diet apart from some free-range eggs provided by a neighbor. Her popular television show often features vegan guests discussing health issues or promoting cookbooks, and Ellen is never shy about talking up the benefits of plant-based eating.

Ellen has collaborated on vegan advocacy campaigns with organizations like Farm Sanctuary and was named “Woman of the Year” by PETA in 2009. Ellen is among the best-known vegan celebrities in the United States, and nobody in show business has done more to promote vegan lifestyles to the masses.
