Benjamin Edward Meara Stiller (born November 30, 1965) is an American actor, comedian, producer, film director, and screenwriter.
While Stiller reportedly was a vegan for some time, in 2012 he told Conan O’Brien that he considers himself a pescatarian — and if there’s one thing we know about the Mediterranean diet, it’s that it’s great at keeping the pounds off.
Stiller informed the host of “Conan” that avoiding meat can be tricky sometimes, but his wife at the time, actor Christine Taylor, was more enthusiastic. She told People magazine that she felt the diet had improved their health. “It really has changed our energy level,” she said. “Sometimes you don’t realize it until someone says it to you, like, ‘your skin looks amazing.’”
She added that she wished she had fed her children a plant-based diet earlier. “We have friends that are vegan and their kids came out vegan,” she added. “I’m so jealous that they had the information and they started the kids early because now to go back, it’s a little harder.”
