Actor Jesse Eisenberg—who portrays Facebook CEO and rumored vegan, Mark Zuckerberg, in the soon-to-be-released film The Social Networkrecently revealed that he himself is a vegetarian. He recalled an argument that he had with a vegetarian on an NYC subway: New to vegetarianism at the time, Jesse was hoping to get some tips. Apparently, the guy wasn’t interested in sharing.

Luckily, peta2 has tons of fabulous vegan tips and recipes.

Got any personal veg tips for Jesse?

Just keepin’ it real,
Sunny

    it’s great that he’s vegetarian…many people look up to celebrities and if thier open about vegetarianism then it’s a great way to get the point across and inspire people

    I have to disagree with Seymour Eliot, too, and agree with Mist. And about the grocery store thing; I’m from a small town in Texas and the H-E-B in the town a few mins away from me JUST got Morning Star/Boca items (only like 4 things, but it’s a good start) and they only carry 1 kind of hard tofu. I will be writing a letter to them soon to try to get more vegetarian/vegan things, though.

    Seymour Eliot, I disagree with you, I’m a vegetarian and I don’t believe I “use and exploit animals”. Vegetarians are just as pro animal rights as vegans are. I don’t support the animal entertainment and fur industries, so I don’t understand your “animal enslavement and exploitation industry” comment.

    Don’t say “veg” when you mean “vegan”. Vegetarians still use and exploit animals, and that’s not what we want, is it?

    Jesse should visit Gary Francione’s website (http://www.abolitionistapproach.com/) and read some of his non violent and very wisely written essays. That’ll do for the motivation. Now for the being vegan part, it’s easy: she just has to stop buying animal products and products that contain animal by-products or were involved with animals in general. There is absolutely no grocery store in the world that doesn’t contain enough vegan food for anybody to sustain and have great vegan meals.

    Nobody should feel worse craving something they can no longer eat than supporting the animal enslavement and exploitation industry.

I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall.

Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.
