Is Emma Watson vegan? Yes and no, and it depends on how you look at it.

Since the British actor is a global advocate for animal rights, you’d expect her to be vegan.

However, Emma Watson is not ‘VEGAN.’ Well, not in the strict sense of the term.

In this article, you’ll discover Emma’s diet, her favorite cuisine, and comfort foods right now, in 2022.

When it comes to food, Emma Watson is not following, what you would call, a vegan diet.

So, from a food choice perspective, Emma Watson is not vegan.

However, the DEFINITION of VEGAN PERSON states that:

“any person that condemns animal cruelty and exploitation and excludes – whenever possible and practicable – animal-based food, clothing, accessories and other products, can be called a vegan.”

The British star has been an ardent supporter of animal welfare, and promoter of cruelty-free labels for years.

Emma talks about protecting animals on TV, radio shows, at red and green carpet events, and even in her movies.

Moreover, Emma is wearing only cruelty-free and sustainable fashion labels so, from a fashion choice angle, you can call Emma Watson ‘VEGAN’.

What is Emma Watson’s Diet?

Emma Watson’s diet has not changed much over the years. However, Emma’s body shape changes often, according to the roles she has to play.

Despite not following a vegan diet, Emma Watson is very selective with what she eats.

“I do not follow a particular diet, but I avoid – whenever I can – processed foods packed with preservatives. Most of the food I eat is healthy and consists of lean proteins, unsaturated fats, vegetables and grains”

Emma told ‘Marie Claire.’

When at home, Emma loves to cook.

Emma Watson’s dream is to attend, when her busy schedule allows, a professional culinary school.

“I like to cook, but I don’t know many recipes. I only do things I already know how to prepare. But, I’d love to learn more so I can, one day, open the fridge and say, ‘I have courgettes, butter and pasta, I know what I’m going to make today”.

What Is Emma Watson’s Favorite Food?

While Emma Watson is British, her favorite food is Mexican.

“I’m obsessed with Mexican cuisine. Unfortunately, Mexican food is not that popular in the UK, so one of the first things I do when I’m in New York is to eat Mexican food. I love it!”

Emma told ‘The Huffington Post.’

Emma loves Mexican food so much that she has invented her own Mexican dish:

“I mix guacamole, salsa, and scrambled eggs on a warmed up tortilla. It is simple, fast and very yummy.”

In conclusion, if semantics is what interests you, you can argue that Emma Watson is not a vegan because she does not follow a vegan diet.

But, you could also argue that thanks to her support for cruelty-free and vegan fashion labels, she’s done more for animal welfare than most vegans out there.

  1. “She’s done more for animal welfare than most vegans out there.”
    That’s a ridiculous thing to say considering that those “most vegans” do more for animals than non-vegans by not contributing to their exploitation, including Emma Watson.

  2. “thanks to her support for cruelty-free and vegan fashion labels, she’s done more for animal welfare than most vegans out there.”
    Yeah, no. Real vegans don’t support any animal abuse. You can’t just ignore that she is supporting animal abuse by eating eggs and other animal products just because she supports some vegan fashion labels.
    Honestly she’s just a hypocrite and my respect for her is gone.

  3. Did you see what Emma Watson posted on Twitter? I guess she and Leo Robinton are not engaged. Yet, I hope I’ll see Emma in a new movie soon as I loved her in Harry Potter and in Beauty And Beast.

  4. You know, to me it does not really matter if Emma Watson is vegan or not. In my opinion, she can eat whatever she wants, as long as she continues to be a love, kindness, and common sense ambassador to millions of teenagers looking for guidance right now.

  5. Also, I think other so-called vegan celebrities should learn from Emma Watson how to behave, help people and animals. That’s why I love her so much.

  6. I have no idea where you got that definition of veganism from, but it’s straight up wrong. The Vegan Society is a cornerstone vegan group that’s been around since 1944, and their definition right now explicitly states that veganism is a lifestyle that excludes animal products as much as humanly possible. Merriam-Webster dictionary says it’s someone who abstains from animal products.

    Emma Watson is an animal rights activist, but she’s not vegan by any reputable definition, and it’s insulting to suggest that she’s done more for animals when she still participates in their exploitation. I’m not trying to vilify her, I’d just really appreciate it if you wouldn’t report things that she’s not.
