Jessica Chastain Can't Eat Non-Vegan Food Because It Makes Her 'Sick'

The 'Molly's Game' beauty shares the story why she adopted vegan diet and how she feels healthier and has 'so much energy' after staying away from meat and dairy products.

AceShowbiz - Jessica Chastain becomes "sick" if she doesn't stick to her Vegan diet. The "Interstellar" star stays away from meat, fish and dairy products as it boosts her energy levels and believes she is intolerant to fish.

"I don't do drugs and I'm vegan. I was feeling very sick and my friend said, 'Why don't you eat vegan for two weeks?' The first week I was very hungry, and the second week I felt amazing," she told Radio Times magazine when asked what her biggest vice is.

"When I finished the two weeks I went to a restaurant and ordered fish and risotto and I felt sick again. So, I decided to just eat vegan. Now, I have so much energy and I do four movies a year. I also don't drink coffee usually - but when I go to Italy [her husband is Italian], I might have an espresso."

The 46-year-old actress has been an advocate of veganism for a long time, as well as having a passion for sustainability. The "Molly's Game" star is also a LGBTQ+ activist and campaigns for women's rights and equality in the movie business.

She said, "I very actively support anyone who I feel is being mistreated. I think it was something that was instilled in me in childhood. I had no one tell me to be this way. It's just kind of who I became."
