In my opinion, with his unbelievably good looks, there really isn't a better poster boy for veganism than Liam Hemsworth. That's right — the Aussie actor's insane body is entirely fueled by plants, not a steak to be found. While there are many reasons to go vegan, Liam Hemsworth is vegan for his own health, as well as for animal welfare purposes.

"My own health, and after all the information I gathered about the mistreatment of animals, I couldn't continue to eat meat. The more I was aware of, the harder and harder it was to do," Hemsworth told Men's Health in 2015, when asked what made him decide to go vegan.

I mean, honestly, just when you thought the man couldn't get anymore attractive.

First Steps

Liam made the decision to go vegan in May 2015. After he went for a blood-diet analysis, a nutritionist told the star to eat more red meat, which Liam wasn't down for. "The more red meat I ate," he admitted, "the worse I felt."

It's okay, Liam, too many burgers is a bad idea, anyways.


Liam has cited his "Hunger Games" co-star Woody Harrelson as an inspiration for his vegan diet. While Woody plays a drunken mentor in the film, the actor is careful with his health IRL. When Liam got the flu during their press tour, Woody advised him to eat more "raw vegetables" which had Liam feeling better in no time. Of course, it helps that Liam's fiancée Miley Cyrus is vegan, too. The duo are often spotted at vegan restaurants, such as Crossroads in L.A.

What He Eats

Liam keeps things simple by eating a lot of beans, rice, and salads. His go-to smoothie is filled with nutritious foods like spinach, berries, almond butter, and protein powder, which he blends up a few times a day. That's not to say that Liam doesn't enjoy the occasional indulgence, though; this picture of Liam chowing down on a veggie burger in 2015 almost blew up the internet. One fan even commented "I wish I were the hamburger." I totally get where you're coming from, girl. There's a reason that PETA named Liam 2016's sexiest vegan.

Being vegan doesn't mean that you have to participate in the Hunger Games. Liam says that he has no issues getting protein as a vegan, and that he feels "nothing but positive, mentally and physically." However, Liam admitted he cheated once in his first few weeks of being vegan after he was confronted with his guilty pleasure: a slice of New York cheese pizza. Honestly, I don't blame ya, Liam. Pizza makes the world go round.

Final Thoughts

All in all, my love for the star has only grown upon finding out that Liam Hemsworth is vegan. From convincing his brother Chris to eat a more plant-based diet to spreading the vegan love on Insta, it's clear that Liam is passionate about adopting a vegan lifestyle. And honestly, if it means Liam keeps posting adorable photos with furry friends, then nobody should be complaining. Kudos to you, Liam.
