Free Birds!

It’s no secret that I love cartoons, and I’m sure it will come as no surprise that I love animals ;) so you can imagine how excited I am for an animated movie about turkeys :) (especially one with a message of compassion):

How cute are those turkeys? You know where I’ll be when this hits cinemas early next year. Probs nosh down on some of this delish tofurkey beforehand :)

It’s no wonder that Jake and Reggie wanted to give their fellow turkeys a hand. We don’t have Thanksgiving here in Australia, but turkeys are by no means safe from the plate. Around 5-6 million turkeys are killed for their flesh in Australia every year. These birds spend their whole lives in large sheds, cramped in with loads of others. (Click here for everything you need to know about how turkeys raised for meat are treated and to sign the pledge to make kind choices.)

Neat little fact about Free Birds: Jake is played by Woody Harrelson, who doesn’t eat turkeys OR any other animal :) In an interview with USA today, Harrelson joked, “I’ve been really studying for this part for a long time because I’ve been a vegan for 23 years. I had an instinct a long time ago: Don’t eat turkeys. Eventually you’re going to play one.” There ya go, straight from the turkey’s mouth - being veg could be a good professional move ;) Click on Woody’s head to kick-start your cruelty-free career today.

What other celebrities do you know of who are meat-free?

Davey Havok, lead singer of AFI, is Vegan and has been for a long time. Such an inspiration of mine. Toby Morse, lead singer of Punk Rock band, H20 is Vegetarian and has been since '87. Jade Puget, guitarist of AFI, Adam Carson, drummer of AFI, are both Vegetarians, Hunter Burgan, bassist of AFI is Vegan. Alec Baldwin is Vegan. Ben Stiller is Vegan. Ellen DeGeneres is Vegetarian, not Vegan, she eats eggs, scroll the net for proof. Alicia Silverstone is A gorgeous woman and Vegan. My girlfriend is Vegan, too. Is she a celebrity? Yes. She's the star of my heart. (:
I hope this helps a bit(:
