While actor Peter Sarsgaard might have played some questionable characters on screen –portraying a murderer in “Boys Don’t Cry” and a death row inmate on “The Killing” — he makes much more compassionate choices in real life.

Not only is he known for his activism and charity work, he is also vegan. In a recent interview with Men’s Journal, he talked about his vegan diet and the challenges he faces living in a non-vegan home.

Sarsgaard admitted that, although he has followed a vegan diet for some years now, he still finds it difficult at times. His wife — fellow actor Maggie Gyllenhaal — is a pescatarian, he told Men’s Journal, but his daughters still eat meat a couple of times a week. He said, “I cook steaks for my kids all the time because that’s what they like.”

Despite these difficulties in the home, Sarsgaard finds it easy to find good vegan food while he’s on set filming. He attributes this to the fact that there are lots of vegans working in Hollywood and the entertainment industry in general. He quipped to Men’s Journal, “On movie sets actually it’s not that bad because there are a lot of vegans working in the entertainment industry. The movie that I just wrapped I was actually wondering what the meat eating actors were doing!”
