Who says bad guys have no hearts?

Who says bad guys have no hearts?

When you think of celebrities who are spokespeople for compassionate eating, this bunch might not be the first to come to mind. They're the ones who make it into the tabloids for doing something wild, crazy, illegal, or all of the above. They have tempers, bad habits and, in some cases, a penchant for violence, be it in real life or in the art that they make. They also happen to eat plant-based diets.

Mike Tyson
He has gained some wisdom over the passing years, moving beyond that unfortunate ear-biting episode which earned him so much infamy. He's become a poster child for turning one's life and health around. Sure, he’s done a lot of terrible things (drugs and violence against women among them), but we do appreciate that Mike seems to have turned a new leaf. “Becoming a vegan, it just gave me another opportunity to live a healthy life. I was just hard wheel, so congested from all the drugs... I couldn’t hardly breathe, high blood pressure, almost dying, and arthritis,” he told Oprah of his transition. “Once I became vegan, all that stuff, it diminished.” Losing over 100 pounds, Tyson seems like an entirely different person now.

Billy Bob Thornton
Renowned for playing roles ranging from vaguely creepy to deeply disturbing, many of his characters sparing little thought for either kindness or health. One wouldn’t necessarily leap to the conclusion that Billy Bob sticks to a plant-based diet. The truth is, not only is he vegan but he’s also very committed to his health.

Rob Zombie
The man behind “House of 1000 Corpses” and “The Devil’s Rejects,” he has recently confirmed that he and his wife are vegan: “The only thing I ever really care about is animals and animal causes,” he said of his animal activism. He’s worked with PETA and supported fundraising efforts for animal sanctuaries, even participating in a campaign around Thanksgiving to raise awareness for the treatment of turkeys in factory farms.

Kurt Sutter
This heavily tattooed, motorcycle riding, seriously outspoken creator of the “Sons of Anarchy” and “The Shield” is one of the last people that would come to mind when you mention the phrase, “vegan celebrities.” Often railing against the politics of Hollywood on Twitter and acting as head writer for a show that hands out violence like Valentine’s Day cards, Sutter lives with a stark duality: “I live in two worlds. The right wing, gun-toting, meat-eating, Harley-riding, racist, homophobic, masochistic fantasy dynasty, that is 'Sons of Anarchy'. And the centrist-liberal, anti-gun, vegan, Tesla-driving, gay-priding, civil-minded, pro-choice existence, that is my personal life.”

These men reflect our own imperfections. They aren’t trying to be role models or spokespeople -- they’re humans who are trying to do the best they can, and we can relate to that. On the outside, these seem like the last people who would opt for a vegan diet, but they make daily choices that lead to a more compassionate world.

So why not follow their lead? Do something wild and crazy (but legal and humane)! Check out the latest meat-free deals at Kindmeal.my, and stay on the good side of these bad boys.
