(Newser) – Tobey Maguire wasn’t happy with the luxurious Mercedes he was given to use while filming in Australia, so he sent it back—but not because he’s a spoiled Hollywood star. Rather, Maguire is a vegan and took issue with the car’s leather seats, Australia’s Daily Telegraph reports. Maguire, who is filming The Great Gatsby, requested vinyl upholstery instead. But though he doesn’t eat meat, many of his colleagues do—The Frisky lists five who seem to particularly love it:

  • Mischa Barton: In a recent Tyler Shields photo shoot, the actress got a little intimate with a raw steak. As in, she actually placed it in her mouth.
  • Crystal Renn: The model—who has struggled with an eating disorder—was pictured chowing down on a hunk of beef in this month’s issue of Vogue Paris.
  • Bruce Willis: The action star donned a ground sirloin toupee on Late Night with David Letterman.

Tobey Maguire is insignificant. Jesus accomplished more during his time on earth. Question: Does Tobey Maguire donate any part of his massive fortune to the poor? The Bible teaches us to help people who are suffering. Poverty is rampant all over the world.

Why all the HATE So he is a vegan. I love all meats. Beef,Pork and Lamb chops but I also have friends that are very very strict about there vegan diets and I have never had one call me a terrorist for eating my bacon and eggs. The real douche bags are the people that cant stand anyone's opinions other than there own.
