The "Pirates of the Caribbean" actor described himself as "90% plant-based" and said he was curious to know why Eilish avoids consuming animal products, including meat, seafood, milk, eggs, and cheese.

"I am vegan. I've been vegan for, damn, seven years," Eilish began.

Educating herself about the ethics of the meat industry and the dairy industry guided her decision, the singer explained.

"Once you know that kind of thing and you see it, it's really hard to go back," she said.

Eilish continued, "And now, even though I have lots of friends that eat dairy and meat and I don't ever want to tell anybody what to do, I just can't go on in my life knowing what's going on in the animal world and like, not doing anything about it."

Growing up in Los Angeles' Highland Park neighborhood, Eilish didn't eat meat. So, the transition from a vegetarian diet to a vegan one was somewhat straightforward.

"Becoming vegan wasn't like a huge deal for me because meat was never a thing in my life. It wasn't like I missed meat - it wasn't like I had something to miss," the "Your Power" singer said on 2018 episode of the YouTube series "Montreality."

Eilish mentioned during a 2019 interview with Pitchfork that she had an iron deficiency, adding that her mother, Maggie Baird, gives her iron supplements.

Brian B. Scott, MD, a retired gastroenterologist of Lincoln County Hospital in the UK, previously told Insider that vegetarians and vegans may be at a greater risk for low iron. However, he said that nuts, dried fruit, and vegetables can help level out iron deficiency.

In recent years, the "Ocean Eyes" singer has used her massive platform to raise awareness about animal cruelty, often posting videos about the meat and dairy industries to her 83.7 million Instagram followers.
