Portia de Rossi went vegan six years ago, and now, like so many others, says her youthful glow is all thanks to her plant based diet.

In her shoot for People’s most beautiful list, de Rossi said, “I’m vegan. it’s really changed, like, my eyes, my, you know, everything.” Also something she thinks makes her look younger? The fact that she dresses like a teenager (her words.)

Other vegan celebs agree. Jared Leto said back in March, “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.”

And plenty of other celebs, like Michelle Pfeiffer and Alicia Silverstone have talked about how a vegan diet has helped their health and their looks. When you cut out all those saturated fats and replace them with organic veggies and whole grains, it’s not surprising that one ups their beauty, both inside and out.

    She’s lovely. I do know that vegan eating can change one’s eyes. Mine have gone from a dark blue with gold and brown around the pupil to medium blue with very light silverly blue around the pupils. Not sure I look younger because I’ve lost a lot of weight since going vegan and that process does age one. But I’ve noticed the red capillaries I had around my nose and on my cheeks have gone.
