Tobey Maguire wasn’t happy with the luxurious Mercedes he was given to use while filming in Australia, so he sent it back—but not because he’s a spoiled Hollywood star. Rather, Maguire is a vegan and took issue with the car’s leather seats, Australia’s Daily Telegraph reports. Maguire, who is filming The Great Gatsby, requested vinyl upholstery instead. But though he doesn’t eat meat, many of his colleagues do—The Frisky lists five who seem to particularly love it:

  • Mischa Barton: In a recent Tyler Shields photo shoot, the actress got a little intimate with a raw steak. As in, she actually placed it in her mouth.
  • Crystal Renn: The model—who has struggled with an eating disorder—was pictured chowing down on a hunk of beef in this month’s issue of Vogue Paris.
  • Bruce Willis: The action star donned a ground sirloin toupee on Late Night with David Letterman.
