Brad Pitt Is Vegan, But Angelina Jolie Is Not

By   /   May 1, 2012  /   9 Comments

Although Brad Pitt is vegan, and has been for a long time, his wife-to-be Angelina Jolie does not share his way of life.  “I was a vegan for a long time, and it nearly killed me. I found I was not getting enough nutrition,” she said.  This is a problem that plagues many people who try to go vegan, but don’t educate themselves on what types of foods they need for proper nutrition. Doing things like: drinking Vitamin D-fortified almond, coconut or soy milk, eating rice and beans, consuming nuts and seeds, securing a source of Vitamin B12, and lots of leafy greens help in ensuring proper nutrition.

Brad Pitt, on the other hand, hates red meat so much he gets annoyed whenever he witnesses Angelina eating it.  Since Brad Pitt is vegan, he also gets mad when he sees his children eating animal based products.  Jolie claims to have been initially inspired by Brad Pitt’s veganism, but now likes to joke that red meat is what gives her a great figure.

A source told the Daily Mail, a UK newspaper, that the couple was at odds over how to raise their children. The crux of the matter was whether or not the kids should eat meat. Pitt wants the children to avoid eating meat, but Jolie is not having it. The source told the Daily Mail:

“[Pitt] goes on about the damage caused by methane gases from cattle and that the family should go veggie but Angie says that’s never going to happen.”

For now, it looks like Angelina Jolie will not let Brad Pitt get his way. Her bad experience with going vegan years ago, means that their children will be omnivores as they grow up. No matter how much that disgusts Brad Pitt today.

    I really appreciate this post. I’ve been looking everywhere for this! Thank goodness I found it. You’ve made my day!

    Too bad they’re fighting. Hopefully she changes her mind!

  3. Mond says:

    Angelina is such a bitch

  4. Anonymous says:

    Angelina still looks malnourished anyway! So going back to eating meat has hardly helped.

  5. Big Bubba says:

    What a bitch! He wants to raise his kids without cruelty but she doesn’t? She still looks so malnourished that I can’t see how eating meat has done anything for her

  6. realitycheck says:

    Its because of ignorant comments like those that so many people are alienated by vegans. You’re doing more harm than good to animal welfare.

  7. Knewit says:

    I knew it ! I’m transitioning to vegan, wondering today what celebs are vegans , vegetarians etc… and I got to thinking about Brad Pitt. I’m like, with his MILLIONS he’s GOT to have a good diet. I just couldnt see him putting McDonalds into his body after checking his bank account. Even Jolie, I doubt when she says she eats it means she consumes the normal amount of the traditional meat eater.Theres a difference between HER and June Shannon. (Honey boo boo). Heh heh, I was right, one of them is vegan. Knew it.

  8. Mark says:

    She is anorexic anyway, so probably not eating enough calories on vegan diet. If she cares about world hunger, the first action should be to go vegan. She has eating disorder that what her problem is and she got sick of that and not from being vegan.

  9. Helen says:

    She should get a copy of the 80/10/10 diet – that will educate her properly on vegan nutrition and calorific intake
