Tobey Maguire has banned leather from his house.
The mainly vegan actor insists everyone who visits his Los Angeles home remove all their leather garments, including shoes and belts, 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."
Tobey recently revealed cutting out all animal products from his diet, including milk, eggs and cheese, was easy for him.
The 'Spider-Man' star - who has been a vegetarian for over 14 years and only breaks his vegan eating plan when he has to gain weight for film roles - explained: "It's never really been that hard for me. I've never had any desire to eat meat. In fact, when I was a kid I would have a really difficult time eating meat at all. It had to be the perfect bite, with no fat or gristle or bone or anything like that.
"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."
