Melbourne, August 30 : Sir Paul McCartney has slammed celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay for making "stupid" remarks about vegetarians.
Sir Paul, a vegetarian for more than 30 years, says that he was really irked by reading what Ramsay would have done had his children decided to embrace vegetarianism.
"I think it's a case of live and let live. I will talk to people about the advantages of vegetarianism, and it will upset me if we've had a good conversation and they turn around and say something stupid," news.com.au quoted Sir Paul as telling a British supermarket chain's magazine.
"I just read a quote from Gordon Ramsay . . . 'If my daughter ever grew up and married a vegetarian, I'd never forgive her'. But even that I would forgive because it's not my affair, it's not up to me if he talks stupid or not," he said.
He also revealed that his youngest daughter Beatrice, four, was a vegan.
"One of the first things I do, like most people now, is to look at the ingredients. My youngest daughter is vegan, so I'm often looking for vegan food and I need to know if there's any dairy products . . . It's a good thing, you do it for the right reasons," he said.
McCatney even said that he was ready to convert Ramsay or anyone else to his cause.
"I'd be happier if everyone was vegetarian. The planet would be better off for it," he said.
