The interview with Bijou Phillips was rather appalling to me. ("Hollywood's Honest Actress," by Choire Sicha, Dec. 14)
To become vegan and then to revert to being once again an omnivore? How unsettling! Phillips most likely didn't approach veganism in the right way. What was she eating? How was her food prepared? There are many questions that need to be answered here, and I feel that Phillips has done a disservice to many people who may be considering adopting a plant-based diet. Millions of us have found delight and an enormous amount of satisfaction with our vegan lifestyle, both from a health standpoint and from living as much as possible in harmony with all of those marvelous beings who share this planet with us.
