2. Mike Tyson (Age 35)
The former boxer's bizarre public trajectory got a little weirder when Animal Planet gave Tyson his own reality show, Taking On Tyson
, where he nurtures and races pigeons. But it turns out that Tyson has been a lifelong bird-lover, and his first punch
as a child was directed at a boy who killed one of his birds. Tyson went vegan in 2009 and said it made him feel better than ever
1.Thom Yorke (Age 43)
The Radiohead frontman lists the song "Meat Is Murder" by The Smiths as one of the reasons he chose to go vegan (Morrissey, the famous Smiths frontman, is vegetarian). Yorke told the United Kingdom's Animal Aid that aside from the song, meat consumption caused him physical illness until he gave it up for good (plus, he was trying to impress a girl). Animal Aid cites Yorke as a vegetarian, but MTV Europe confirmed Yorke is a vegan.
