Ironman Actor Robert Downey Jr. is Adopting a Plant-Based Diet



  • by Peter Manley

While every person who converts to veganism helps to push the movement forward, celebrities and major influentials have the greatest ability to move society toward a greener future.

Recently, the actor behind Marvel superhero Ironman––Robert Downey Jr.––stated that he is adopting a plant-based diet. During the premiere of Dr. Dolittle––a new film produced by his wife Susan Downey––Robert told Variety magazine that he is “off chicken now”.

He told Variety, “And I make faces for cash and chicken. Even though no, I’m off chicken now. I’m going plant-based. For cash and legumes.”

In this month alone, three major awards events offered many of Hollywood’s greatest stars––including Robert Downey Jr.––all-vegan menu options. The three shows––the Critics Choice Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and the Golden Globes––each served completely plant-based dinner options during the events.

Downey Jr. joins several other Marvel castmates who have adopted a vegan diet as well. Actors/actresses such as Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Dave Bautista (Drax), and Zoe Saldana (Gamora) are all either vegan or eat a mostly plant-based diet.
