Ted Danson Is A Quasi-Not-Really-Vegan. This Week.

In the Fall and Winter of 2007/2008, Ted Danson proudly wore the badge of being a vegan — even though he really wasn’t. He went on Conan O’Brien and proclaimed he was one (though he admitted to eating fish occasionally), and then hit Good Morning America and talked a similar script. “(First) I went after my cholesterol. I didn’t want to take the meds, so I lowered it,” he said on the show. “I went from 259 to 129 (pounds) with herbs and exercise; I’ve become vegan with some fish from time to time, and it works. I feel great.”

For all the vegans out there reading this, I understand completely if you’ve already rolled your eyes and silently thought, “Still eating fish? Then he isn’t a f**king vegan!”

Exactly — but feel better that Danson is no longer associating himself with the vegan lifestyle. In a new interview with GQ, Danson clears up any reasons we had to believe he would actually still be a vegan, er, pescetarian.

I’d read somewhere that he was a vegan. “Oh yeah, no, I’m an actor. Which means one week I’m vegan, the next I don’t know.”

Just to prove the point, he ordered a plate of Nantucket Bay Scallops. So, now we know. This week.
