Jack Black says everyone should consider going vegan – although he admitted he has not yet made the switch himself.

The comedian made the comments during a recent WIRED Autocomplete Interview, where celebrities answer the internet’s most searched questions about themselves. 

Black appeared on the segment alongside actress and rapper Awkwafina.

Is Jack Black vegan?

One of the most commonly asked questions about Black online is whether or not he is vegan.

He answered: “No, but I would like to be. I am in spirit, and really, it’s time for everyone to consider that lifestyle for the environment. I found out it turns out vegans are better for the environment. Why? Cow farts.”  

Despite understanding the impact livestock production has on the planet, Black revealed later in the interview that his favorite food is currently a cheeseburger.
