Forty-one year old actor and singer, Jared Leto, certainly doesn’t look his age. He barely looks older than his breakout character Jordan Catalano in “My So Called Life”, and that aired nineteen years ago.

What’s his secret? Leto told British GQ when they asked him about “looking 31 at 41″, “I still have plenty of vices, but alcohol isn’t one of them. It’s probably just down to sleep and diet. If you travel long haul a lot or don’t sleep much, it’s not going to last very long, that’s for sure. I’m pretty healthy so I think that helps a lot. I’ve been that way for a long time – 20 solid years of eating vegetarian/vegan and taking care of myself. That probably helps the preservation process.”

Recently Michelle Pfeiffer also talked up her vegan diet and how it helps her keep her youthful glow. It seems that whenever a vegan celeb is asked about how they stay in such great shape, their vegan diet is their top answer. Good for animals and good for health. A win/win.
