Back in 2009, Ellen and her wife, Portia DeGeneres decided to become vegan because of their love for animals. Here's what she told Shape about her diet change: "Food used to be really important to me. I loved steak, I loved hamburgers, I loved all that stuff. I can't believe how irresponsible I was, eating what I ate . . . I want to be on my toes; I want to have energy. And as much as the [vegan] diet seems like a sacrifice, it's helping me."
