Today is World Vegetarian Day, the official kickoff of the North American Vegetarian Society’s annual Vegetarian Awareness Month. In honor of the unofficial holiday, we decided to seek out some of the more surprising famous meat shunners. Maybe these unlikely herbivores will help convince you that anyone can do it. Or maybe they’ll just make you want to go eat a burger. Either way, enjoy!
For a man who makes gruesome slasher flicks and is named for the flesh-eating undead, you’d think Rob Zombie wouldn’t have any hangups about eating meat. The director/musician actually has been a vegetarian 1982, when he saw slaughterhouse footage in high school.
