Does this mean Chris Martin has to forfeit his 2005 Sexiest Vegetarian title? During an interview with BBC Radio 2's Steve Wright in the Afternoon on July 1, the Coldplay frontman, 37, revealed that he's no longer on a meat-free diet following his split from Gwyneth Paltrow.
Asked by host Steve Wright if he's still a vegetarian, Martin replied, "Well, not really," prompting Wright to say, "What do you mean 'not really'?"
"Well, I eat meat," the British singer answered, laughing. "I was vegetarian for quite a long time and then for various reasons I changed. My daughter's vegetarian since she was born, so I keep getting tempted to go back. I don't eat very much meat."
Pressed for more, Martin explained, "I felt like you should only eat something that you'd be able to kill...You know, could you kill a fish? I wouldn't like it, but I probably could, so I'll eat the fish. But a giraffe..."
Midway through his explanation, he paused and joked, "I don't know why on earth we're talking about this. I've gotta stop talking—this will be some kind of headline."
Martin's ex Paltrow, 41, is famously strict about her diet. In 2013, she told The Guardian she hadn't eaten red meat in two decades. "I hung out with Leonardo DiCaprio when I moved to New York. He was vegetarian, and he'd talk about how dirty meat is and how bad factory farming is," she explained. "I haven't eaten red meat in 20 years, and although Leo's not totally responsible, he definitely planted a seed."
