While her treatment of some people on her show has made entertainment news headlines, there’s no doubt that the celeb talk show host respects animals. DeGeneres rescues animals as pets and follows a strict vegan diet along with her celeb wife, Portia de Rossi. DeGeneres told Good Housekeeping that she loves animals because “they offer unconditional love in ways humans can’t — plus, they don’t talk back.”
2. Russell Brand

Russell Brand has been an on-again, off-again vegan since he was 14. In 2011, Brand was named one of PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities. When celeb Katy Perry’s ex officially switched completely to veganism, he tweeted, “I’m now vegan, goodbye eggs, hello Ellen.”
3. Megan Fox

While normally in the news for her love life (she recently split from Brian Austin Green and started dating Machine Gun Kelly), this celeb’s devotion to animals deserves some coverage. The bombshell told People that her children attend a vegan school where they grow their own food. Fox teaches her children never to harm animals, even the smallest creatures like ants.

4. Brad Pitt
Perhaps it was differences in their diet and/or morals that drove Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie apart. Pitt’s been a longtime vegan while Jolie has always eaten meat. That must have made for some awkward dinners! Pitt isn’t a fan of fish, saying it gives you “fish breath,” and he’s advocated against the inhumane treatment of egg-laying hens.
5. Meghan Markle
Meghan Markle follows a vegan diet most of the time and even has Prince Harry and baby Archie going meat-free. Markle went so far as to make sure baby Archie’s nursery decor was vegan, even down to the paint.
6. Katie Holmes
