Stephen Colbert States Jon Stewart is Vegan
On a recent episode of Late Night With Stephen Colbert, host Stephen Colbert spoke to his guest Matt Damon about a previous role the actor played in Happy Feet 2.
In the movie, Damon and Brad Pitt were the voices behind a pair of krill, and Colbert jokingly let the actor know that the roles were actually offered to him and Jon Stewart first. When Damon asked Colbert which specific krill they were meant to be, Colbert responded:
“Pitt was the krill with the abs, and you were the shorter krill. I think Jon’s vegan so he’s got the abs.”
Stewart is a big fan of vegan butcher shop The Herbivorous Butcher, and he and his wife Tracey recently sent a couple of vegan cakes to daytime talk show The View, after one of the hosts expressed skepticism that vegan cakes could taste good.
Earlier this year, Colbert had told his guest Woody Harrelson that he “lost a bet with a friend” and as a result, would have to be “vegan for 17 days.” Perhaps the friend in question was Jon Stewart!
