Producer Judd Apatow says he was inspired to try a vegetarian diet after listening to an interview with actor, James Cromwell, known for his role in the movie version of “Babe,” as well as his work with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

“I was listening to the radio and James Cromwell was on the radio… and he was explaining why you should be a vegetarian, the philosophical and ethical reasons and environmental reasons, and the second he was done talking, I couldn’t eat meat for a year,” says the producer of “Anchorman” and “Knocked Up.”

Unfortunately, Apatow’s approach to vegetarian food wasn’t well planned.

“I tried to be vegetarian for a year and I gained a lot of weight because I said, ‘You know what? I’m going to replace all meat with pizza.’ And I gained so much weight,” admitted Apatow. “… I just got so bored of leaves, but I’ll probably do it again at some point.”

Many of us know that a vegetarian diet is so much more than leaves and pizza! We hope Apatow will give vegetarianism another go and branch out his menus. There’s plenty to eat without choosing meat!
