Director James Cameron might be “the king of the world” when it comes to his cinematic hits, but it’s his vegan diet that is giving him a new lease on life.
Promoting his latest innovative endeavor, the documentary, “Deepsea Challenge 3D,” the brilliant mind behind the mega-hit movies, “Titanic,” and “Avatar,’” told the Sydney Morning Herald that switching to a plant-based diet completely changed his life.
“I feel good about it,’’ he told the Herald about his upcoming sixtieth birthday. ‘‘If you’d asked me when I was 30, I would have thought, ‘Your life’s over. Just get in the box, get on with it’. But I went 100 percent plant-based – vegan – two-and-a-half years ago. I’ve got tons of energy. I’m fitter now. I’m running farther than I did when I was in my twenties. So I’m good to go.”
Cameron will need all the energy that a plant-based diet can give him. In addition to promoting his real-life underwater adventure (yes, Cameron risked his own life by shooting the ocean’s floor in a tiny submarine), the former truck driver is planning the next three ‘Avatar’ sequels, with target dates of Christmas 2016, 2017 and 2018.
