5 Celebrities Who Grew Up on a Farm

Carrie Underwood

Carrie grew up on a farm and says the experience turned her in to a vegetarian: “I started [as a vegetarian] at 13. I grew up on a farm with cows, and it sounds stupid, but once I put two and two together, I thought, I’m not eating this; he’s my friend. But it’s personal. Everyone around me eats meat, including Mike. So I buy it at the grocery store.”

Charlize Theron

Charlize grew to love animals during her childhood on a farm: “I grew up on a farm in South Africa, so I’ve always been surrounded by animals. I was raised by a mother who always had great compassion and respect toward animals. It was instilled in me. I grew up that way. So when I see dogs or other animals suffer, it’s just been something close to my heart.”
