I’ve always been a huge admirer of Michelle Pfeiffer. She’s a terrific actress and seems to be intelligent and sane. She also happens to be incredibly beautiful, even at the age of 54. That beauty seems to be natural, too.
Come to think of it, I don’t really care for her all that much.
Michelle Pfeiffer was interviewed by Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN for Monday’s edition of “Piers Morgan Tonight” and she thanks credits both Gupta and former president Bill Clinton for inspiring her to switch to a vegan lifestyle.
I was finishing up working on, I think it was ‘Dark Shadows,’” she says. “And I was watching CNN, and ‘The Last Heart Attack’ came on.”
As she was watching Gupta’s documentary, which explains the best preventative measures for heart disease, it was former President Bill Clinton’s story that really got to her. Pfeiffer says that she loves to eat, but when she saw that Clinton was happy with his new vegan diet, it hit home.
According to her, she told herself,
OK, Bill Clinton loves food, so there must be something to [veganism] that’s making him stick to it. And also, he’s smart, so he’s not going to do something unless he really thinks there’s some science behind it.”
She then read the book “Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease,” which recommends a plant-based, oil-free diet, and Pfeiffer says it was all she needed to make the switch.
I just felt like…there was science behind it,” she says. “And, you know, it was sort of irrefutable. … I couldn’t not listen to it. My father died from cancer, and the older you get, there’s a lot of disease around you. And you see people struggling with chronic disease. You see people dying with terminal illnesses. And if in any way …. this is true, then you kind of have to listen to it.”
Pfeiffer goes on to explain that the vegan diet fits right in with her love of carbs and that she’s really enjoying her new lifestyle.
She admits that vanity has a little bit to do with her diet change, but that good health has been her main concern.
I don’t think she needs to worry about good looks.
