Nina Dobrev Seriously Considering Veganism Due to Friendship With Ruby Rose
Byrdie recently had the “rare pleasure of eavesdropping on a candid interview between the two celebs” Nina Dobrev and Ruby Rose, and transcribed the conversation on their website.
During the 30-minute phone interview, Orange Is the New Black actress and vegan Rose asked The Vampire Diaries star Dobrev a series of questions about life, work and their friendship.
Rose’s fifth question focused on Dobrev’s fitness routine, calling her “crazy-fit,” to which Dobrev responded:
“I used to be able to eat whatever I wanted and didn’t go to the gym. This is a newfound love for fitness and education about the type of food that I’m putting in my body, which I’m pretty good at doing for the most part, but on occasion, I do cheat and do my own thing. It is this big cycle of being super healthy for a couple of weeks and then falling off the wagon and going back on and falling back off the wagon again. I feel like everybody struggles with that.”
“But now, when I fall off the wagon, the older I get, I feel it more and I see it more. So life is forcing me to have to be a little bit [stricter]. I hadn’t truly, truly considered veganism until I met you. But hanging out with you and eating these Impossible burgers definitely inspired me to consider it more seriously because [vegan food] is so yummy and delicious. Either that or your friendship can cast a spell on me.”
Last year, Rose suggested that her 1.3 million followers on Twitter go vegan to fight climate change, and told fellow vegan and Orange Is the New Black co-star Laverne Cox that she has been vegan “for a couple of years” and that it is “the best thing ever.”
