According to various press reports, actor Tobey Maguire (of Spiderman fame), who is a vegan, is asking visitors to his home to remove all leather items before entering. One guest to his house said, “I’ve seen women take off their shoes, belts, and even leave their $4,000 bags at the door. Tobey says the smell of leather makes him sick—he never has it around him.”
“I don’t judge people who eat meat, that’s not for me to say, but the whole thing just sort of bums me out,” says Maguire.
What do you think? Has Maguire gone too far or is this reasonable? Have you experienced similar requests in your life?
