Ever since her role in Catwoman, Anne Hathaway has been enthusiastic about her vegan diet— even going so far as to serve a vegan menu at her wedding. But in the upcoming issue of Harper's Bazaar, Hathaway reveals that she said goodbye to veganism while filming the upcoming sci-fi movie Interstellar in Iceland.

In the film, she plays an astronaut and needed strength to wear a 40-pound space suit. Hathaway says she didn't feel strong or healthy, and one day felt an overwhelming desire to eat fish from a nearby stream.

She told Harper's she "just felt better" after eating fish and is now back to being a full-blown carnivore. (In fact, the author describes her eating eggs and sausage during the interview.)

Hathaway certainly isn't alone: Many people claim they felt better after giving up their vegan diet, while others claim that going vegan made them feel much better.

How has your experience with veganism affected you?
