The lovely Ashley Greene was spotted out on a lunch date with her boyfriend Joe Jonas, as the two enjoyed some vegan cuisine at Real Food Daily in Los Angeles. The two have been dating since last year and recently moved in together, so it looks like Ashley’s vegan lifestyle might be rubbing off on Joe!
Greene is well-known for her commitment to her vegan diet and to animal rights in general: she recently received the “Kind Choices Award” from PETA for teaming up with Avon. The cosmetics company ended all animal testing in 1989, which made them the obvious choice for Greene to represent.
Greene is currently on a break from filming “Twilight: Breaking Dawn,” in which she plays Alice Cullen. The cute cross-over between Ashley and her character Alice is that the Cullen family are “vegetarian vampires”… that is, they don’t bite humans. Of course, that means they bite animals instead so “vegetarian” isn’t exactly the right term, but it’s the thought that counts.
Jonas, meanwhile, isn’t traditionally a vegetarian but has been eating at more vegan restaurants and choosing veggie burgers over meat since he started dating Greene. Joe has also been involved with many charities and green efforts in the past as part of the Jonas Brothers and Disney: he contributed to “Friends for Change: Project Green.” On the other hand, the Jonas Brothers were one of the least green touring bands of last year. Justin Bieber was one of the most eco-friendly, and look how the tides have turned, Jonas’!
Hopefully Ashley’s good influence continues to push Joe toward a greener, more animal-friendly path. After all, a power couple with a “Twilight” star and a Jonas Brother could be a force for some serious good!
