Wall of Vegetarians

The 14th Dalai Lama (1935-present)

 I was just browsing around the internet, researching up Sir Ian McKellen when I stumbled upon the fact that he is a vegetarian. So I decided to make a small tribute to all the self-proclaimed vegetarians from our past and present, no matter who they identified themselves as; gay, smart, evil or just plain talented. I know being a vegetarian may not seem like a big deal to some people but believe it or not, it becomes quite exhausting and life changing- especially when you are surrounded with family or friends who consume meat and/or have a hard time understanding vegetarianism. The following figures have their own personal reasons for being a vegetarian and I believe we must respect their choice and vegetarian lifestyle, no matter what their reputation was or is. (Note: Some of these figures may be very controversial and as much as I respect your opinion/views, I must ask that you do not comment with hate or 'bash' any of these figures. Thank-you)
