Hunger Games actor Josh Hutcherson has admitted he will be ditching his plant-based diet for Thanksgiving today.

Hutcherson, who dropped animal products from his diet earlier this year, has said he will be eating a range of festive dishes cooked by his grandmother – including non-vegan mac and cheese.

Speaking on James Corden’s talk show Late Late Show last night, the 25-year-old actor said he is ‘more or less’ vegan, adding that he is ‘vegan plus’.

‘Vegan plus’

Hutcherson, who is known for his role of Peeta Mellark in the Hunger Games trilogy, explained the ‘vegan plus’ concept: “It’s like, vegan plus some other things I wanna eat every now and then.

“Like, my grandma makes the best macaroni and cheese on Earth and it’s like, I’m not going to have a steak, but vegan, vegetarian, whatever. I’ve just been doing a plant-based diet.”

‘Pretty p*ssed’

Corden asked the celeb how his family will feel about his first vegan Thanksgiving.

Hutcherson replied: “Not very good about it. No, grandma’s gonna be pretty p***ed that I’m not eating her turkey or her ham. 

“But I’m going to eat all the sides. The mac and cheese, the green beans, the mashed potatoes, all day. I’m super excited. Rolls, bread, it’s gonna be great.”
