Ricky Gervais Reveals He Is Eating Vegan Food During Lockdown

by Agi Kaja

Ricky Gervais has revealed his favourite dishes during an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.

When asked "What have been your go-to comfort foods during all this?" he responded: "Pasta with vegan meatballs. We have tofu stir-fry with noodles. Vegan lasagna. Basically, everything that was fattening but with meat substitute."

During the interview, he described his new lifestyle during the COVID-19 pandemic: "I've been snacking less because I'm worried about not doing as much exercise. As it turns out, I'm probably doing slightly more exercise because I'm panicked about not doing enough exercise so I'm doing more exercise.

"I'm eating better; I'm drinking slightly less because I'm going to bed earlier and I'm getting up early. If anything, this improves my lifestyle," he said.

Gervais also said he was supporting his favourite animal charities even more during this challenging time and expressed his admiration of the NHS workers.

He said: "I'm glad people are realizing that the National Health Service are heroes and it's lovely to support them.

"And I'm doing the same animal charities that I always did and probably even a little bit more because people are giving up their pets because they're worried about themselves," he added.

The comedian is rumoured to be vegetarian or even vegan, but he has never confirmed it publicly.
