Angelina Jolie: Vegan diet ‘nearly killed me’

Released by Livestock Marketing Association 9/2/10
Hollywood star Angelina Jolie is well-known for her action movies, her many children adopted from around the world and her marriage to fellow super-star Brad Pitt.  It turns out she’s also a big fan of beef.  In a recent interview with an entertainment website, she said her vegan diet nearly killed her – and even though Pitt is a strict vegetarian, she also makes sure their children have red meat in their diets.  The article quotes her as saying, “her extreme vegan diet nearly killed her.  She gave up eating red meat in an effort to be healthier, but said that it actually resulted in malnourishment.  ‘I joke that a big juicy steak is my beauty secret. But seriously, I love red meat.  I was a vegan for a long time, and it nearly killed me. I found I was not getting enough nutrition.'”
