Michelle Obama Gets Jay Leno to Eat his Veggies

February 1, 2012

Michelle Obama paid a visit to Jay Leno and had a mission while she was there. The First Lady wanted to get the talk show host to start eating his vegetables.

It turns out that Leno hasn't eaten a single vegetable in 40 years and it has been more than 20 years since the 61-year-old last ate an apple. On her visit, Obama made sure to change all that. She showed up with a whole wheat pizza topped with tomatoes, eggplant, green peppers, and zucchini, and just wouldn't take 'no' for an answer.

"I have nothing against vegetables. They seem like very nice plants. Maybe I’m the opposite of a vegetarian. I don’t want to eat them because I don’t want to hurt them," Leno said.

Check out how Obama got Leno to finally eat something healthy in the video below.
