Chris Martin, who PETA decided was the sexiest vegetarian alive along with Carrie Underwood in 2005, announced on BBC radio he’s no longer a vegetarian, but he only eats meat he could theoretically kill.
“Could you kill a fish?” Martin explained in the interview Monday. “I wouldn’t like it, but I probably could, so I’ll eat a fish. But a giraffe …”
Right. So basically the more defenseless an animal is, and presumably the closer it is to Chris Martin, the more appropriate it becomes to eat for dinner. Don’t be fooled by this confusing (but badass) rationale.
It’s pretty clear Martin suppressed his meat-loving ways for his wife and other beloved celebrity Gwyneth Paltrow, but now that they’re sort of split he sort of wants to embrace meat, but he’s not quite courageous enough to do that in case they sort of get back together.
“I was vegetarian for quite a long time, and then for various reasons, I changed,” he said. “And my daughter’s vegetarian since she was born, so I keep getting tempted to go back — I don’t eat very much meat.”
