Michelle Pfeiffer announced on Piers Morgan Tonight that she has adopted a vegan diet and credits the move to CNN's The Last Heart Attack, a special that examined plant-based diets as a way of treating heart conditions.
The actress revealed she found hope in her new diet when she heard that Bill Clinton had managed to stick to his own plant-based diet.
"Okay, Bill Clinton loves food, so there must be something to [veganism] that's making him stick to it," she said. "And also, he's smart, so he's not going to do something unless he really thinks there's some science behind it."
Leading a healthier lifestyle isn't the only reason why Pfeiffer wanted to change her diet. "Vanity is right under there, but I have to say that it's a close second with wanting to live long."
