Minnie Driver Coins Latest Bizarre Celeb Diet: I Will Only Eat Animals That I Hate
Metro UK ^ | Wednesday 29 Jan 2014

Posted on 01/29/2014 1:33:42 PM PST by nickcarraway

Minnie Driver appears to be creating her own celebrity diet craze of hate-etarianism after explaining she will only eat animals she doesn’t like.

The 43-year-old Good Will Hunting actress explained: ‘I’m not a vegan. But I went to a farm school. I used to have a pig. So I can’t eat pigs. And I like lambs, so I can’t eat them. And I used to have to milk cows, so I can’t eat cows. But I don’t mind if anybody else does. And I hate turkeys, so I eat them.’

Meanwhile, the single mum hopes to land a role on British TV screens despite two movies coming out this year.

Driver told EOnline.com: ‘I would do Downton Abbey tomorrow. I’m waiting by the phone. I don’t care what I play. I just want to be on the show. I want to be in it. I’m obsessed with it. I don’t even mind if they kill me after one episode. I just love that show. It’s the greatest soap opera on TV!’

I hate all birds like chickens and turkeys, their ancestors kept us mammals down for about 250 million years, 65 million years ago, so they still have about 185 million years of being eaten by mammals left...

I hate libs, but you don;t get enough meat on their bones because they are vegan, and don;t talk to me about using their brains for anything food related because it is like eating nothing...

I was going to post that for me to follow her diet it would mean I could only eat snakes and rats and liberal/democrat/progressive Homo sapiens...

Then I realized it would be redundant...

“I bet most of them that claim to be vegan aren’t really.”

I knew a woman who claimed to be vegetarian. Then she joined me at lunch and had meat on the plate. Turns out you can still be a vegetarian if you eat fish and chicken. Who knew?

I once stopped at a farmstand in New York State which had a cooler filled with steaks and ground beef. I asked the woman at the cash register about it, and she said, “I’m sure they’re great, but I wouldn’t eat them.” I asked why, and she said, “I knew his name.”

My mom would cook it, never would eat the meat from our angus steers that we raised from calves.

She couldn’t help befriending them when they batted those long eyelashes at her

I know a woman who claims she’s a vegetarian but orders pepperoni pizzas and promptly throws the pepperonis in the garbage. Yeah, like that’s honoring the poor animal who gave his life only to be dumped in the trash. Not to mention the meat juices that soaked into the pizza. She also really likes those white chunks of whatever they put into PORK n beans.

I have some understanding of her perspective. I don’t eat rabbits, dogs, cats or horses. That still leaves me plenty of options.

I can go along with her here.I hate most vegetables (but not Brussels Sprouts and lima beans),I hate most parts of most animals but I love snakes and the brains of all animals.Being a very hateful kind of guy there's not much in this world that I'd refuse to eat.

Plus,I think she's kinda hot and that helps.

Honestly? I never got why people alwasy seemed to like Minnie Driver.

Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with her, but I never saw her as exceptionally atractive. She was in, what?, one notable movie?

The only thing I can figure is that people liked the female character Driver played in Good Will Hunting and have forever after associated her with that movie character. Beyond that, I’m not seeing it.

Don't know if you're familiar with the show but she appeared in an episode of Absolutely Fabulous."Bubble" had a couple of good lines about her."Is she a dwarf?",she asked at one point.Of course if you don't know the show this would mean nothing to you.
