In a recent interview with DIY, actor Forest Whitaker talked about his current film (“Black Nativity”), religion and spirituality, and what’s on his holiday dinner table. If you’ve seen the public service announcement that Whitaker did with his daughter for PETA, then you know there are veggie options on the family table!

When DIY asked Whitaker about his Christmas plans, the Academy Award-winning actor (“The Last King of Scotland”) replied, “I’m going to be at home with my family and have some food. There will be the traditional food that we always have on Thanksgiving or Christmas. There’s candied yams, dressing, black-eyed peas, collard greens, and pies. We have a vegetarian and a meat-eating household, so we have vegetarian options. I can’t say that’s exactly the way it was when I was a kid. We never had vegetarian options (laughs)! I think Christmases are getting simpler and simpler, maybe because the children are getting older and older.”

Sounds good to us! Check out the rest of Whitaker’s interview on the DIY website and also catch him in “Black Nativity” in a theater near you.
