High School Musical star Zac Efron has revealed that he's eating a plant-based diet - and enjoying it.
According to the actor, his new diet is one of a host of lifestyle changes aimed at improving his wellbeing. Another is getting more sleep.
He made the comments in an interview with Teen Vogue magazine.
Efron said: "I've been experimenting with eating purely vegan.
"That's completely changed the way that my body works, and the way that I metabolize food, the way it turns into energy, the way that I sleep.
"It's been brilliant. It’s been great for my exercise, and great for my routine."
On top of his eating habits, the actor also revealed what fashions make him feel good.
He said: "A well-tailored suit always feels great before you go out, and a lot of deep breaths before the red carpet.
"Getting your picture taken - standing in this place and then told where to turn - is the most awkward you’ve ever felt, so you have to mentally prepare for that.
"Luckily, when I get to do it, I'm doing it in a cool suit, so I feel happy."
