Vegetables Almost Killed Angelina Jolie

8/31/2010 Posted by Admin

Not long ago, Angelina Jolie apparently tried a blood-free diet and it almost caused her to shrivel up and explode (think True Blood-style). At a press conference for "Salt," Jolie reportedly told this to reporters:

"I joke that a big juicy steak is my beauty secret. But seriously, I love red meat. I was a vegan for a long time, and it nearly killed me. I found I was not getting enough nutrition."

This is a woman built for drama.  Who else can claim that a cucumber nearly killed her?  That a garbanzo bean nearly did her in?  That if she had eaten that buttery head of lettuce, she would have folded up camp and tossed herself into her own halo?  No one.  And besides, no one with such meaty lips could resist meat forever.  She's built for the stuff. 

Keep eating the meat, Angie.  Just watch out for Peta.

    That's completely asinine. While you can become malnourished on a vegan diet, that's generally only a problem for people who remove all meet/dairy and end up eating only salads and ramen noodles because they don't know what else to eat.

    Anyone with the money she has and with a personal trainer or nutritional consultant would only be missing nutrients if her trainer and%/or nutritionist is an idiot or biased against a vegan diet.

    My guess is that average Joe Shmoe loves to hear how a scrawny woman "loves her some red meat" and finds it sexy. So, she and her agent give the people what they want.

    As a related aside: here's a taste of other poor people "withering away" from malnutrition:

    @AP So angelina jolie is really a closet vegan?

    Pretentious and delusional.
    See what the vegan diet does to the mind?
