6 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Vegan

Jenna Dewan has been vegan since 10-years-old!

Celebrities do not always publicize their diets, which makes a lot of sense. It’s not like people need to know ALL of their business, after all. As a result, there are a wide range of vegans currently flying under the radar. They have a number of reasons for being vegan, whether they are looking to watch their health, cut back on their environmental footprint, or reduce animal suffering.
