Despite being voted PETA's 2010 Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity, Olivia Wilde is giving up her vegan lifestyle over the course of her pregnancy.
29-year-old actress Olivia Wilde is giving up her vegan lifestyle for the duration of her pregnancy. The 'Rush' actress is expecting her first child with 'Horrible Bosses' actor Jason Sudeikis - her fiancé - and had decided to reintroduce animal products into her diet for the first time in five years, in which she has been a vegan. For this, Wilde was named as PETA's Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity in 2010.
In an interview with 'E! News' on 11th December, 2013, Wilde was asked if she was intending to stick to the vigorous diet, to which she replied: ''No, I'm not.'' She has, however, expressed support for the lifestyle and suggested that she intends to return to it next year after the birth of her baby. Despite this, Wilde has spoken about how hard the vegan lifestyle is in the past, despite having been a vegetarian for years beforehand.
In a 2012 interview, Wilde stated that: ''I have been a vegetarian since I was like... 12. But [being vegan] has been something that, for the past four years, has at times been consistent, other times less so. It helps if you have the right support system.'' She continued to say that: ''[Being vegan] is not always easy and accessible. But it's a way of life and makes me as a person feel really good and physically look better.''
