Actor Denzel Washington is giving away the secrets to his healthier new look. The star told WENN, “I’m a vegetarian now.” Although, he’s a new vegetarian so he’s not perfect yet. He continued, “But sometimes I’ll cheat and have chicken.”

While eating chicken is definitely not vegetarian, we’re thrilled for the actor that he’s cut his meat consumption down to almost nothing. It’s good for him and good for animals.

He said about his lifestyle change, “When I did the play Fences (on Broadway) it just kind of woke me up to this idea of getting back to the basics in every way, and I made a commitment to just work harder and eat good.”

Perhaps others will follow his lead. There is nothing like one of Hollywood’s most respected actors recommending a veg diet!

From personal experience I can tell you that the actor has always had to watch what he eats. He told me back in 2004, “I just look at a Krispy Kreme and I gain weight.” Doesn’t everyone?

    – So, you’re not a vegetarian then.
