As we prepare to sit down at the dinner table and share what we’re thankful for, there are tons of turkeys who will be giving thanks as well to these celebs who refuse to agree that the bird is the word on Thanksgiving Day.
Natalie Portman is just one celeb who will be sparing a turkey its life. In addition to being a moral passion she holds dear, her meat-free lifestyle is also a nice convenience. As she told People magazine, “My mom dropped the turkey one Thanksgiving. It was sad. We all had to do so much work to keep her from crying, but it wasn’t a big deal for me. I was like, ‘See, if you were a vegetarian…’”
Alicia Silverstone has long been an activist and devoted vegan. As she puts it, “I feel physically and spiritually better than I could have ever imagined knowing that I am doing everything I can to reduce animal suffering with simple lifestyle choices.”
