Alicia Silverstone — Hollywood CelebWhile the whole of America can’t wait to dig their jaws on their big Thanksgiving feast — a holiday completely devoted to turkeys, a few celebs have happily resolved to skip the fowl from their plate and celebrate the turkey-day in a purely vegan way! From Alicia Silverstone to Mike Tyson and from Sir Paul McCartney to Natalie Portman, a slew of celebs have vowed to stay away from meat and bring on the holiday season with ‘tofurkey’ instead.


Die-hard vegan Alicia Silverstone, who kicked her carnivore craving to the curb, said, “It's so simple to create a delicious holiday meal without animal cruelty. I promise no one will miss the turkey! Enjoy!"


Corey Feldman, film and television actor, added, “There are many ways of giving thanks. Eating turkeys doesn't have to be one of them. Healthy and delicious vegetarian options now make compassionate holidays easier than ever. This Thanksgiving, join with my family in starting a new tradition that celebrates life and promotes peace for all beings."


Actress and model Kim Basinger, further added, “Every living thing feels pain and should be protected from cruelty. Farm animals are no different."


Noah Wyle, another hard-cored vegan quipped, “Our family holidays always include our animals. On Thanksgiving, we love to walk around our farm and visit with our rescued pigs, goats, horses, emus and many other rescued animals. We give them all special vegetables that day and the whole family enjoys a vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner. We know that the animals are giving thanks that day and we are also giving thanks for the joy they bring to our lives."


Some of the other celebs who plan to give turkey a miss this Thanksgiving Day are Alanis Morissette, Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck, Kate Winslet, Liv Tyler, Orlando Bloom, Prince, Pink, Seal, Shania Twain, and Tobey Maguire.


With these compassionate celebs skipping the traditional fare and opting for faux ‘tofurkey’ turkey, would you be inspired to do the same? Think, because every thought counts!
