Tobey Maguire may be best known for his role as Spiderman, but did you know he’s also a vegan? He has made it pretty clear he doesn’t like leather, having banned it from his house. That means giving him a car with seats made out of cow skin might not be the best choice.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the actor is currently staying in Australia with his family while filming The Great Gatsby. Maguire was given a free Mercedes to drive around while on location, but sent it back for a replacement when he saw the car’s leather seats.

Maguire was vegetarian for fourteen years before going vegan in 2009, or almost vegan? The former-Spidey said, “I don’t eat eggs, or nearly any dairy – no cheese or milk. I do eat honey and a piece of milk chocolate here and there. It’s never really been that hard for me…I’ve never had any desire to eat meat. In fact, when I was a kid I would have a really difficult time eating meat at all. It had to be the perfect bite, with no fat or gristle or bone or anything like that. I don’t judge people who eat meat – that’s not for me to say – but the whole thing just sort of bums me out.”
