Leonardo DiCaprio Implores Fans to Stop Eating This Food
Leonoardo DiCaprio has never come out to say he has already went vegan like other celebrities, but it is apparent that his diet is increasingly plant-based. That said, he wants his fans to drop meat too, not because he wants them to become vegans, but he believes doing so will save the planet from its impending ruin due to climate change.
Leonardo DiCaprio Calls Fans to Stop Eating Meat
On March 4, the actor, known as a Beyond Meat partner, tweeted about something he wants his fans to no longer eat. In his tweet, he implored his fans to at least consider lessening their meat consumption, not because he wants them to be vegans already, but because doing so will allegedly lead to the reduction of carbon footprint.
It will be therefore one way that ordinary people can make a difference on the climate change problem, as opposed to just calling on companies to lessen their carbon footprints or just avoiding single-use products. In his tweet, DiCaprio clearly stated that each and every individual can do something about the climate change issue.
Is Leonardo DiCaprio Vegan?
As said, the actor never outright said he is making a shift in his lifestyle nor diet. But then he probably did not find any need to do so — because actions speak louder than words.
While he never labeled himself a vegan, it is apparent from his social media posts and from the accounts of people close to him, that he is starting to be passionate about going green.
One telltale sign that he is now likely a vegan is his reaction after it was announced that the 2020 Golden Globes menu would be plant-based. After finding out the news, the actor publicly thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for making this food decision. He might or might not be a vegan, but he clearly supports the movement towards plant-based diet.
According to VegNews, DiCaprio also has entered into a partnership with vegan milk company Califia Farms, as well as a chickpea-based protein snack company HIPPEAS. Both companies are known to be popular among people who do not like meat in their diets.
Apart from this green company, he has also entered into another partnership, this time a clothing line, with a notable environmentalist, Jane Goodall.
Beyond Meat is also a known vegan company.
If these are not serious signs enough of DiCaprio being a vegan, the fact that his friend out-rightly described him as one says something.
In an article for the Spectator UK, the writer Moby relayed how he was able to sell a house to the "Titanic" actor's parents. In the process, he called the actor a vegan.
"I'd recently sold a house to Leo's parents, and had in the process become friends with Leo," Moby wrote. "In Los Angeles, bidding wars on houses take place between bold-face vegans."
Vegan or not, though, it is obvious that the actor does not think meat should be consumed in the same amount as it has been in the past, not just because of personal health, but the environment's health.
