The awards just keep rolling in for Jared Leto! However, it was his acceptance speech at the Independent Spirit Awards, which really had people talking, as he jokingly thanked “the seven billion people on the planet,” along with Twitter, the makers of size 12 heels, and “the people who make vegan butter.”

Leto also responded to rumors that he’s dating 12 Years A Slave star (and Oscar winner) Lupita Nyong’o as he replied “I want to thank all the women I’ve been with and all the women who think they’ve been with me – and my future ex-wife Lupita.”

Leto has become quite the vegan advocate these days. He’s teaching us how to make vegan pancakes, and doing it in style!

The 42-year-old actor has credited his vegan diet and yoga workouts for his youthful good looks. He also doesn’t drink and makes sure he gets enough rest.

“It’s probably just down to sleep and diet. If you travel long-haul a lot or don’t sleep much, [your body’s] not going to last very long, that’s for sure. I’m pretty healthy so I think that helps a lot. I’ve been that way for a long time. Twenty solid years of eating vegetarian/vegan and taking care of myself. That probably helps the preservation process,” Leto told GQ.

We concur, Mr. Leto. Your vegan diet probably isn’t hurting you acting career at all, that’s for sure!

It's pretty simple - you aren't vegan if you eat fish. He ate salmon while doing an recent interview. Don't call yourself a vegan if you eat animals! He isn't even vegetarian if he eats fish. I do think that if he's crediting veganism for his health/looks, that is a great thing, but does he have to eat fish in public interviews and still say he's a vegan? People are going to read that and be confused about what being vegan means.
