Is Benedict Cumberbatch vegan?

Well, it seems like the answer is yes. 


According to PETA ‘​​It’s official—mega-talented British actor Benedict Cumberbatch is vegan. While promoting the highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, the Dr. Strange actor mentioned—during three separate interviews—his vegan diet.

During an interview with Time Out London, the actor was asked if he had to eat anything “gross” like “egg whites” to stay in shape for the movie. He promptly answered, “No, no—well, I eat a plant-based diet”’.
