Brand, 36, has been a vegetarian since the age of 14. In one appearance on Live! With Regis and Kelly, the animal-loving funny man made it clear that fish are not a part of his diet. When asked by Ripa, 40, if he took fish oil to stay sharp, he quipped: "I'm vegetarian. I think it's cruel to squeeze oil out of a fish… Cause they're lovely little guys, aren't they?" He then added: "You shouldn't eat animals; it's mean to them!"

Wiig, 37, credits her vegetarian diet for helping her stay fit. In an interview with Women's Health, the Bridesmaids star explained she maintains a healthy lifestyle by running, doing yoga and because, "I'm a vegetarian. I eat a lot of tofu and soy."
