Tobey Maguire’s leather ban
Tobey Maguire has imposed a leather ban on himself.
The ‘Spider-Man’ star, who has been a vegetarian for fourteen years, is determined to become more animal friendly, starting with all leather goods.
Tobey recently ordered a non-leather interior for his new car, and has even started wearing shoes “made from canvas and stuff like that”.
The 31-year-old actor describes himself as “close to becoming a vegan”, and as well as not eating meat he also abstains from eggs, cheese and milk.
He said in an interview with Parade magazine: “It’s never really been that hard for me. I’ve never had any desire to eat meat. In fact, when I was a kid I would have a really difficult time eating meat at all. It had to be the perfect bite, with no fat or gristle or bone or anything like that.
“I don’t judge people who eat meat, that’s not for me to say, but the whole thing just sort of bums me out.”
Spears Delays L.A. Flight
Britney Spears recently stormed off a busy jet plane, delaying the flight for almost one hour – because the aircraft’s seats were not made of leather.
The pop superstar’s refusal to sit in her allocated seat left hordes of angry passengers fuming on the flight from Los Angeles to Florida, and the plane was delayed even further when she demanded to be let off the aircraft at the last minute.
Fellow passenger Tony Sanchez said: “The plane was about to taxi to the runway when Britney got up. She said, ‘I don’t want to fly on this plane – it ain’t got leather seats.’ “Then there was further delay as her bags had to be found and taken off.”
