mark ruffaloIt’s not often that vegetarians and vegan encounter trouble in sticking to their eating habits overseas, but for Mark Ruffalo, it was a nightmare.

While filming the new movie The Brothers Bloom in Serbia, the actor confesssed that being a vegetarian in Eastern Europe had been nearly impossible. “We ate a lot of what they call Shopska salads which was the only thing I could eat in all of Serbia because that’s the only thing that doesn’t have meat in it,” he told the UK Metro.  “It was really sad for me there,” he added.

Making matters worse, everytime he let locals know that he was a vegetarian, he was accosted. “When I told them I was vegetarian they were like ‘you must be from America because nobody here would ever be vegetarian – we tear you vegetarians to pieces and eat you!’. Apart from that we had a nice time!”

Note to self: Avoid Serbia.
