Alicia To Tell All About Veganism

| Filed under: Alicia Silverstone


Former Clueless star, Alicia Silverstone, is adding author to her resume.

Rodale, Inc has just announced their plans to publish Silverstone's first book.

The topic? Vegan dieting, of course.

The book, appropriately titled The Kind Diet, is scheduled to be out Fall 2009.

According to reports, the book "explores the connection between what we put in our bodies and what we’re doing to the planet, and how choosing the right foods in the kitchen can help you feeling lighter, sexier, and more alive."

Sounds like a winner. Minus the whole not eating meat part.

Her book will also include a 3-step diet program, along with 75 vegan and macrobiotic recipes.

  11. 11

    Its doing wonders for her looks.

  12. 12

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand no one cares

  13. Boo says – reply to this


    She looks terrible. WTF?! She needs to eat better. I don't think the vegan way is agreeing with her.

  14. 14


  15. 15

    If being a vegan is good for you then why do MOST if not ALL vegans even up looking sick, pale, and their face evens up getting all sucked in as with Alicia. It is obviously not as good for us as they claim. She's proof of that. She looks malnourished!

  16. 16

    Purrrfect photo ! haha sooo enticing!

  17. 17

    She's a LOT thinner than many women in their 30's! Give her a break! She could have just gotten back from a long trip…. Perez- did you ever stop and consider what eating meat is doing to our planet? (We use over 70% of our land to grow crop to feed the animals we eat! Even scientists have said eating meat would help our environment. Not to mention you'd be thinner and healthier and not hurting the animals. They have rights just like gays do.

  18. mook says – reply to this


    I don't think being a vegan helped her in the sexy department.

  19. cdv says – reply to this


    eat a hamburger- maybe you will be hot again.

  20. 20

    I don't think she looks sickly, I think she's just going natural, and this is what she looks like without makeup and hair done. Nothing special huh?, most of the celebrities don't look like anything special either without hair and makeup, they just don't get caught with their pic taken.

  21. 21

    she looks sooo busted

  22. 22

    I am sorry but all those micro-biotic veggie girls just look sickly and malnurished. Evolution or God gave us inscisors for a reason we are CARNIVORS

  23. 23

    ohhh my god. im a vegan and its one of the healthiest and easiest things ive ever done. everyone tries to be vegan and doesnt eat the fake meat or beans and rice for protein and they get sick or black out. going vegan is a switch in your diet to non-animal oriented products. if you just cut everything out, of couse you'll get sick asshole.

    btw, fuck you "imalwaysrite". enjoy your colon cancer, murderer.

  24. 24

    …it is unnatural to NOT eat meat at all. I don't understand this diet at all, so is it better to eat fake meat choc full of crap, added vitamins than the real thing?

  25. 25

    YAY! A vegan book! I love being Vegan!

  26. 26

    Her looks doesn't speak well for vegans. She looks malnourished.

  27. 27

    jeez way to make a whole group of people look bad perez.
    shame shame.
    everyone has their bad days, even those oh-so-healthy people who eat meat.

  28. 28

    …remember when she was pretty?

  29. 29

    Vegetables killed Alicia's career.

  30. Aequa says – reply to this


    That picture is the best argument against veganism.

  31. 31

    Humans aren't "carnivores." Carnivores ONLY eat meat. Do you ONLY eat meat, redsonja? And it's the canines, not the incisors, that supposedly make us meat-eaters. Of course vegans are going to look sick if they're stupid, the same way omnivorous people do if they're eating nothing but crap. Veganism isn't and shouldn't be a "diet." It's a lifestyle. And, as a vegan, I look a hell of a lot better than most people I know. Didn't anyone stop to think that MAYBE P-nasty deliberately posted an unfortunate picture to accompany the bit? Besides, it's not as if she was drop-dead gorgeous to begin with.

  32. 32

    Wow she is only 32.Heavy meat eaters and Vegans have the same long term death rate .You need some lean protein.

  33. 33

    Vegas are good people.
    I think she just took a really bad pic with bad lighting
    We dont need meat
    We just have to make sure and get all the essintial amino acids from a variety of foods
    Eating meat is basically eating flesh..Cows, Pigs, etc are the same asDogs, Horses etc etc..Its all the same..You are eating meat..lol
    But hey live how ever you want.

  34. 34


  35. 35

    Looks like shit! Someone give her some
    animal crackers or sumthin! ha! oh wait NM!

  36. 36

    Perez, you stupid fatass, you always say "cruelty to animals is NOT okay!"
    And now you're all, mmmmm, meat, yummy! I'm not a vegan, but I do hope you know MEAT comes from DEAD BABY ANIMALS.
    Pick a side, any side, you dumb obese hypocrite.

  37. 37

    Stop trying to make veganism look bad. It's a good thing for yourself and for everyone and everything else.

  38. 38

    Wow.. When did she get so damn UGLY?! And what the hell is she wearing??

  39. 39

    fucking hell,,,,if thats what eating vegan makes u look like then pass the meat please

  40. Jenmo says – reply to this


    Food chain, we have canines for a reason, etc etc.

    The fact that vegans are supposed to take a lot of supplements should logically explain the fact that they are missing something that their bodies need. I have no problems with what anyone wants to eat…its the reasons they usually give when pushing the lifestyle that bugs the crap out of me.

  41. 41

    Fuck vegans. Fuck PETA. Fuck fuckers.

  42. 42

    She looks like shit!!!! I am guessing life without meat or dairy products will make u like THAT?!

  43. 43

    Re: redsonja1313
    Well you sound like an idiot. We were most certainly not created carnivores. If you study animals in the wild, you will note that they do not rely on anything other than their natural hunting ability, speed, strength, claws, teeth, and jaws. They have no tools or weapons. Now look at yourself… Imagine trying to run after an animal, catch it, and kill it using your bare hands, fingernails, teeth, and jaws. Not only would you look ridiculous, but you’d probably get your as kicked too. We use man made weapons and technology to capture and kill animals.

    You're dumb. BYE.

  44. MP says – reply to this


    She looks really bad. You'd think a vegan would appear to be the picture of health since they're not putting crap into their body.

  45. 45

    PROUD VOTER of YES ON 8! Move somewhere else if you want to get married!!! YES ON 8! The People Have Spoken!

  46. 46

    oh my shes nasty looking wtf. i agree with the protein shake though. i can give a couple to make her feel better. it would be like eating raw steak.

  47. 47

    nutin' wrong with some meat………nutin at all…………

  48. 48

    dude, fuck the steak….she needs a tanning bed!!!

  49. Jenmo says – reply to this


    So do we not use any "man made technology" to eat anything besides meat? Are tofu, meat substitutes and supplements not man made technology? I could go on and on. You really shouldn't be referring to others as "dumb" here.

  50. 50

    If we arent supposed to eat meat then why do we have canine teeth? Can't deny logic!! And if being Vegan means looking like THAT, HELL NO!!!

  51. 51

    If the end result is looking sickly and pale as she does in that photo? Then no thanks…I'll eat my meat proudly thank you very much.

  52. 52

    If the end result is looking sickly and pale as she does in that photo? Then no thanks…I'll eat my meat proudly thank you very much.Re: imalwaysrite – Took the words right out of my mouth.

  53. 53

    of course we werent ment to eat fast food and all the crap that makes us fat either, and I GET that! But from one extreme to the other is just WRONG. How about people who focus on eating HEALTHY, not extreme.

  54. 54

    Good Lord, what happened to her? Not that she was ever "hot" or anything, but Jesus Christ…she looks like she's been hit with the ugly stick…several times…and been sleeping on the streets, LOL!

  55. 55

    I've never posted on Perez Hilton before, but I absolutely needed to do so after reading this. First, the obvious: This isn't the best pic ever of Alicia, admittedly. I've been a vegan for three years, and I'm hardly a sickly waif. I'm a size eight and recently ran a marathon. Regular blood tests show me to be in great health, with extremely low cholesterol and healthy iron levels. I take one vitamin a day to make sure I'm getting adequate amounts of B12, the one nutrient that's difficult to get without any animal products. As with any way of eating, there's a better way to do it and a worse way. Potato chips and protein bars are vegan, but a diet based on these alone wouldn't be healthy. And to tell you the truth, I respect my brother-in-law — who's a hunter and fisherman — for playing an active role in the demise of the animals he eats rather than just picking up his meat in shrinkwrap from the grocery store. Plus, he can be fairly aware that the turkey and deer he hunts aren't pumped full of hormones and antibiotics, which is more than most meateaters can say. A final note: My mom works at a cancer center at a very well-regarded hospital (with no activist ties, mind you), and the nutritionists there advocate a vegan diet to fight current cancers and prevent future ones.

    Re: whatisanangie – angie……..do you live in a house? does it have running water? heat? I imagine you have a cell phone, and get around in cars, trains, plains…..shop for your food in stores? You see….humans are at the top of the food chain b/c our brains have the power of ingenuity. By your argument, we should all be living in……….never mind………nature would have taken it's course…..humans would have died out loooong looong ago.

  57. ktp says – reply to this


    she looks like hell. is this what veganish makes you look like?

  58. 58

    There is a BIG difference between human canine teeth and predatory canine teeth: ours cannot tear through uncooked flesh. Our teeth and digestive system indicate that we are supposed to be subsisting mainly on plants, not meat. Humans didn't climb to the top of the food chain because of ingenuity, we circumvented it. The more technology we have, the more removed from the natural animal kingdom we become. A toaster does not mean we are at the top. It means we found a loophole. I suggest anyone who feels otherwise squares off against a wolf in its habitat with nothing more than their canines and writes home about the outcome.

  59. 59

    Great! I can't wait to buy it!
    Being Vegan isn't extreme, but then again, we're not a society that wants to sacrifice anything. We want it all and eat it all (it's also why we're so fat as a nation).
    However, there's a world of food out there that doesn't contain animal products. Start reading labels.
    I've been Vegan for 9 years. I've lost 40lbs, my blood pressure has dropped to a healthy level, and my cholesterol dropped 60 points in the first year.
    I never saw what the big deal was about not eating animal products.
    It's good for you, it's GREAT for the planet.

    Re: mamajud – we were not made to be carnivores. that's the end of the story. i'm not talking about shelter.

  61. 61

    wassa matter with her shirt?

    Re: Monrow – you are so smart! now kiss my ass!

  63. 63

    go meat!
    i like my steak medium. how about you guys?

  64. 64

    She looks pasty, her hair looks limp, and her skin looks sickly. Not much of an incentive for me to give veganism a try, Alicia. Sorry.

  65. 65

    Vegans = Spiritually Free!!!

    She looks like death, if we weren't supposed to eat flesh we wouldnot have incisors. Take a page from Travis Barker's book, the human body needs animal protein to heal and stay healthy. Plus I love a good grass fed happy cow rib eye ;)

  71. 71

    If we have the capacity to reason and we truly are 'superior' to animals, then we should also have the ability to evolve into compassionate beings who are considerate of other species.

    The eating meat is natural line of reasoning doesn't hold up. If that's the case then I guess we should be raping women, that's natural too. Also, we are the only species that drinks the milk of another animal. That is definitely NOT natural. We are stealing the milk that they produce for their children and drinking it ourselves!

    If you buy meat, eggs or dairy you are directly contributing to the immense suffering of animals, the destruction of the planet and your health.

  72. 72

    She looks like she's been smoking crack with Amy Winehouse…Someone please feed her! That vegan shit is NOT healthy! Yuk!

  73. 73

    I've always been a fan of hers but she looks terrible in that photo, like she's been seriously ill. If this is what being vegan makes you look like then give me a big juicy steak. She's deathly pale, like she's about to pass out. Someone get her to a hospital for a blood work up stat!

  74. 74

    You wrote Glowing? OMG she looks like death warmed over!

  75. 75

    Most vegans are preachy. It's like a religion for them and if you don't do it their way you're a murderer.
    I say eat some meat along with lots of vegies, fruits and grains.
    And for fun have a little vodka from time to time!

  76. 76

    From the looks of her pale face, she needs some iron from good red meat.

  77. 77

    Dried beans and dark green leafy vegetables are especially good sources of iron, even better on a per calorie basis than meat. Iron absorption is increased markedly by eating foods containing vitamin C along with foods containing iron. Vegetarians do not have a higher incidence of iron deficiency than do meat eaters.

  78. 78

    This is so sad to see. I used to think she was the prettiest girl in the world. I was 11 when Clueless came out and looked up to her. She was so hot. EAT SOME RED MEAT PLEASE ALICIA!!!!!

  79. 79

    she looks terrible - get that girl a steak!

  80. 80

    Research has shown that vegetarians are 50 percent less likely to develop heart disease, and they have 40 percent of the cancer rate of meat-eaters.3,4

    Plus, meat-eaters are nine times more likely to be obese than vegans are.5

    The consumption of meat, eggs, and dairy products has also been strongly linked to osteoporosis, Alzheimer's, asthma, and male impotence. Scientists have also found that vegetarians have stronger immune systems than their meat-eating friends; this means that they are less susceptible to everyday illnesses like the flu.7 Vegetarians and vegans live, on average, six to 10 years longer than meat-eaters.8

  81. 81

    mm yah she doesn't look too great

  82. 82

    Re: govegan!

    That's an amazing statistic, considering osteoporosis develops more so with a lack of calcium, often found in dairy products.

  83. 83

    Alicia is a wonderful person! She has done so much to help advance the work of many of rescue groups, including ours…. She's a tireless advocate of causes that she believes in. No matter what you might think about vegetarianism or veganism I think you would do well to learn from her dedication, focus and energy.

    And ANYONE who would criticize that photo, I ask you… Have YOU ever had a photo taken that you dont like?

    Be part of the solution……. work for what you believe in…. enjoy life and show respect for all beings…….
    wonder dog rescue

  84. 84

    she looks hideous. what happened?

  85. 85

    who wod buy that book?

  86. 86

    did her forehead grow?

  87. 87

    if that is what going vegan looks like, no thank you. bleh.

  88. 88

    If that's what a VEGAN looks like, I want no part of it!
    She looks like SHIT!!!!!!!! and her career is in the toilet. She should devote more time to practicing her acting skills.

    I know several Vegans and vegetarians and they are all fat! They preach how good it is then eat dorito's and potato chips. ALL CARBS=FAT ASS!

  89. 89


  90. 90

    There's nothing wrong with being vegetarian or vegan! Vegans have the LEAST carbon footprint than everyone else in the world, because the meat industry causes so much pollution. They are also the most compassionate, because factory farming seriously has the cruelest procedures to treat their animals. I'm not one of those fanatic PETA people, but I just want people to be educated.

    Perez, I love your site and I applaud you for caring about so many causes, but Alicia is doing exactly what you are when you're fighting against wearing fur, etc. You really CAN be healthy being a vegan–you just need to eat correctly. I've been a vegetarian my entire life, and I can say that I am in great shape and I know many other vegans/vegetarians who are as well. To all the comments that say that Silverstone needs to "eat a burger," it really just is ignorant. Go do some research about factory farming, and maybe you'll think twice about what you're putting in your mouth.

  91. 91

    all vegans look so sickly. not to be mean, it's just the truth.

  92. 92

    GO VEGAN. Everyone takes a bad pic now and then! i met her at the farm sanctuary gala and she was gorgeous. Its just bad light. Going vegan is a great way to help the planet, help yourself and help animals. Heres an idea, if you dont have anything nice to say then maybe just can it! :)

  93. 93

    Re: Dog Gone It – Yes…Ive had bad pics taken, but I'm not a movie star. She needs to be camera ready at all times. This is propbably why she has not had any work in a long time. She needs to focus on her career, not vegetables and a bunch of causes. She can do both like Angelina. I like Alicia, I just want to have the comeback she deserves.

  94. 94

    I've seen better heads on boils! Yikes! What's up with the dirty-looking, limp hair. She looks anemic, as well.

  95. 95

    I don't know what everyone here is talking about….

    You chose a totally unflattering picture of her, if you checked out other recent pictures of her she looks better than ever!

    Veganism is a compassionate, healthy way of living.

    Eating meat and dairy is so unnatural. My doctor told me I'm healthier than ever (don't have to go back for years) and I look better than ever!

    Instead of being so critical DO SOME RESEARCH!

  96. 96

    i've tried The Raw Food Diet. Get very cold. brrr… i need my beefcake

  97. 97

    Shes a fat chick who has to eat greens to stay thin. What a fake

  98. 98

    First of all, thank you for choosing such a lovely and flattering photo of Alicia. On behalf of vegans around the world we thank you for playing into all of the stereotypes that exist. How about next time you attach a picture of LEONA LEWIS? A lovely talented person who also happens to be a VEGAN? I'm pretty sure you've had plenty of nice things to say about her in the past, how about including HER lifestyle choices? Just because Alicia Silverstone looks like crap doesn't mean the rest of us vegans do, and it sure as hell doesn't mean a steak will fix things!

  99. 99

    Re: mamajud – yeah….she looks really rough….i mean hospital time rough…..

    she looks like she has been up all week smoking meth……not that i know what that looks like…..ive heard….lol

  100. DH says – reply to this


    She looks like death……..I don't think I would be buying a book about being a Vegan with her looking this this..
