No joke — James Cromwell is one of my very, very favorite vegan celebs!! Cromwell is the real deal and so excited about leading a greener, more compassionate life. 

In a new interview on, James says: 

“I made a lifestyle change in 1975 when I became a vegetarian, and in ‘94 when I became a vegan.If everybody would do that, we’d save a lot of water, a lot of land use, a lot wasted energy bringing protein to people through animals, a lot of suffering and a lot of greenhouse gases. If people would just cut out meat for  one meal a week, and then one day a week, and then maybe one week a year, they could make an incredible difference.”

As far as how he did, Cromwell said:

“It was a process of educating myself. You have to make a choice, which is different than making a decision. When you make a decision, you often leaves things out that are important. You have to get a protein source. You have to change the way you eat, the sugars you consume, the carbohydrates you consume. In other words, you become knowledgeable and sophisticated about what your particular body needs.”

Check out the whole interview below!! James, we think you’re rocktastic!!!

    Wow. I had no idea James Cromwell was a vegetarian or that he wasn’t British! Thanks to Apple Levy for the interview and sharing his viewpoints with us. Cromwell seems very passionate about the issue and pleased to speak with the public about it.
    I’m writing my own post on this interview on the environmental blog Super Eco. Thanks for the idea!

    Green Girls are great but their graphic/logo/audio needs a little help and while the interviewer was cute and did a nice story she might want to take her voice down a few octaves. Otherwise very good.

    I’ve always enjoyed his roles in the Babe movies – of course his parts in Dallas and Barney Miller also stick in my mind. Glad to know he’s one of us.
