Forest Whitaker

Oscar-winning actor Forest Whitaker told PETA that becoming a vegetarian was one of the “best decisions” he has made in his life. Whitaker decided to ditch meat in 2007 after gaining weight for his film The Last King of Scotland. By incorporating a healthier diet and exercising more, he lost a whopping 70 pounds. He emphasizes that eating a plant-based diet is great for warding off heart disease and diabetes.
