Denzel Washington has become the latest movie star to give up meat, although he still cannot resist the occasional chicken treat.

The Flight star insists his healthy new look is all down to his diet choices.

He tells Wenn, "I'm a vegetarian now but sometimes I'll cheat and have chicken.

"When I did the play Fences (on Broadway) it just kind of woke me up to this idea of getting back to the basics in every way, and I made a commitment to just work harder and eat good."
