Ginnifer Goodwin: 'I'm Not A Vegan Anymore'

Ginnifer GoodwinActress Ginnifer Goodwin has turned her back on veganism for health reasons.

The Walk The Line star was a committed non-meat and dairy girl for years - but a recent illness made her realize she'd have to relax her dietary rules.

She explains, "I'm not a vegan anymore... I'm always learning and growing and changing and there were some boring health issues... and so I did actually have to work some animal products back into my diet."

However, she's still serious about protecting animals and insists on buying produce from cruelty-free farms.

Goodwin adds, "The first thing I ate was an egg that I found from a humane farm... and I scrambled it up. It was the most delicious thing I've ever eaten. I felt like a hypocrite and I cried and then I scrambled up another one."

Ironically, Goodwin's meat and dairy-free lifestyle turned many members of her family vegan - and they're sticking to their diets.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, she said, "I go home and say, 'Are you serious? Let's get some cheese in this house.'"
