James Corden: “You really can’t be upset about elephants and not think about the pigs.”
Actor and TV host James Corden has recently told Radio Times magazine that he has become a pescetarian (soon-to-be vegetarian) due to animal welfare concerns.
According to Mirror, the host of The Late Late Show stated:
“At Christmas, I read a story about the mistreatment of elephants and realised I was upset about animal welfare while eating a bacon sandwich.”
Corden, who is known for his segment Carpool Karaoke which features famous musicians and celebrities, added:
“I thought, ‘Well, you really can’t be upset about elephants and not think about the pigs.’ I hope I can keep it up. I will certainly try.”
While Corden has given up meat, he plans to take his journey to vegetarianism step-by-step:
“I’m going to try to phase out fish next. It’s going to be a gradual process.”
Like many new vegetarians and vegans, Corden is finding that as a result of ditching meat, his “current vice is bread.” Lucky for him, we have a Vegan 101 section that can help give him some meal ideas!
