Actress Amanda Seyfried claims she once attempted a vegan diet, but based on her quote, it appears that she tried one vegan sandwich which didn’t agree with her and then called it quits.

The ‘Les Mis’ star told British InStyle, ”Normally, I’m a super healthy eater. I’m what they call a pescetarian [someone who abstains from all meat except fish] but I’ve tried veganism before. Anne Hathaway gave me a vegan sandwich on the set of ‘Les Miserables’ once, but my body didn’t take to it. I like vegetables, but I love cheese. I have a great relationship with cheese!”

One single vegan sandwich isn’t exactly giving it the old college try. Still, a pescetarian is a step in the right direction. That means Seyfried has at least stopped eating land dwelling creatures.

How sad that because she may have had one bad hummus wrap, she put the kibosh on the whole thing. We’ll say, she should at least try some of the new vegan cheeses out there so she knows that dairy isn’t the only place to find delicious cheeses. If she’s in Los Angeles, the actress should head over to Crossroads. We hear they have a killer vegan cheese plate.

Perhaps Anne Hathaway could take her to make up for that one bad lunch.

    I miss the days when people (women especially) ate like normal humans and not like timid rabbits. meat is full of nutrients. I don’t understand why women are so terrified of it.
