Actor Alan Cumming visited Anderson Cooper on New Year’s Day to munch on vegan chicken and talk about resolutions.
Vegetarian Star reports that a plate of vegan chicken tenders were enjoyed by all during the segment. Cumming went vegan after being inspired in late 2011 by Mike Tyson. His resolution for 2012 was to go vegan. This year, it’s to get in better shape by visiting the gym more often.
Vegetarian Star reports that Cooper dished on his desire to go vegan, but hadn’t followed through because he thought the transition would be too hard. Apparently the host eats the same foods in his day-to-day life and hasn’t quite had the inspiration to make the big change. Perhaps he should talk to Ne-Yo, who went vegan two days ago for his new year’s resolution.
Cumming also took the opportunity to plug his favorite charity, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. As noted on the Anderson Live Website, “The charity mobilizes the unique abilities within the entertainment industry to mitigate the suffering of individuals affected by HIV/AIDS, and increases public awareness and understanding of the disease through the creation and dissemination of educational materials.” Check out Cumming’s video on why he cares about the charity below.
