In what has to be one of the oddest reactions to a vegetarian diet that I’ve heard of, Chris Evans — star of the action flick Push — is claiming that his skin turned green following a decision to drop meat. His girlfriend at the time said going vegetarian was the way to go — and so the actor decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, Evans claims the diet screwed with his body. “I was just getting even thinner than I am now,” he said. “I had a hard time putting on weight, and some of my friends said I was getting green. I’m incredibly pale anyway. I don’t know what was missing, but they all said I had a greenish hue.”
“Finally, I was, like, ‘Hamburger, please.’ ”
Um, what? Something tells me this guy was not eating a balanced diet. Said the Vegetarian Star, “Many people who experience negative effects from going vegetarian do so because they aren’t eating enough or eating properly. It takes more a three grilled cheese sandwiches a day, Chris.”
Completely agree. Do you know anyone that’s ever had their skin color change “green” as a result of going VEG?
