Cloris LeachmanVeteran actress Cloris Leachman has struggled with her diet for 50 years after becoming a vegetarian at the age of 35.
The star gave up meat in an effort to get healthy after she was struck down with hayfever, arthritis and asthma over the course of a summer.
But the diet change forced Leachman to drastically rethink her eating habits.
She explains, "I had to relearn how to cook about three different times - you're from Iowa, there's all sorts of good stuff and I used to marinate the meat with red wine... then I became vegetarian."
Leachman claims the diet helped give her her trademark long legs: "If you're a vegetarian, you get very long legs for some reason or other."
And there's another benefit: "If you don't eat meat, you don't smell... I don't ever wear a deodorant."
