Miley Cyrus's hot surfer ex-fiancé says his choice to become a vegan was all about his health.
Hemsworth tells Men's Fitness:
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. About six months ago I went and saw a nutritionist to do a blood-diet analysis. He basically told me, based on my blood type and all the other different little tests they do, that red meat was good for me, and I should eat a lot more red meat and various other foods. So I started doing that, and the more red meat I ate, the worse I felt. At the same time, I have a lot of friends who are vegan. [Hunger Games co-star] Woody Harrelson was actually one of the original reasons I became vegan, because he’s been vegan for, I don’t know, 30 years or something. So, with the facts I was gathering, and then just how I was physically feeling, I felt like I had to do something different, so I adopted this vegan-diet lifestyle. It’s been almost five months now.
Hemsworth also said that he feels "nothing but positive, mentally and physically," and does not have meat cravings.
In addition, Peta reports that Hemsworth is an advocate for animal adoption and constantly showcases pictures of his many dogs on Instagram.
