American actress, Kate Mara, is just like you and me; she puts her pants on one leg at a time and had trouble giving up cheese. But the admirable House of Cards star decided to go vegan despite her affinity for dairy. It’s just another thing she has in common with her sister, actress and vegan Rooney Mara.
The 31 year-old said that her loved ones aren’t that surprised by her diet change, but they can’t quite wrap their minds around how she quit eating cheese. She said, “Their biggest surprise is that I don’t eat cheese anymore, and I don’t blame them because cheese was definitely the hardest thing to give up.”
Despite her plant-based pursuits, Mara claims she doesn’t judge others who don’t follow the same lifestyle. She explained,”I’m a vegan, but that doesn’t mean I get up and leave if I’m out to dinner with someone who orders steak.”
We are thrilled to add another popular public figure to the vegan celebrity list, and we hope the beautiful and talented Kate Mara sticks to her vegan convictions.
