Jennifer Connelly dropped vegan diet during pregnancy

What's the deal with celebrities jumping off the vegetarian band wagon these days? First it was Travis Barker -- you know, the dude from Blink 182 -- going back to meat after a brush with death. Now, Jennifer Connelly has revealed that she reverted back to her meat-eating ways because, during her pregnancy, she found herself unable to resist the temptation of the bird that many Americans will celebrate in exactly two weeks. In her own words:
"I'd been vegan for many years, and then all of a sudden, when I was pregnant with Kai, I wanted a turkey burger. That was the end of my being vegan."

Actually Jennifer, that was the end of you being a vegetarian. Right? When you start eating meat again, you're no longer a vegetarian. I think that's how it works.

But hey, I'm certainly no pusher of soy burgers -- in fact, I'm a pretty unapologetic omnivore -- but I know a cop-out when I hear one. Is there really a need to justify eating meat by making it part of a broader life change: like a pregnancy or near-death experience?

Sorry PETA, but no matter how many 'meat is murder' advertisements you put out, it's not going to change a significant number of diets. If you want to go omnivorous, yet you still want to keep your eco-footprint in check there are some low-carbon options out there.
