Vegan Actress to Star in Movie

Vegan actress Mae Whitman will play a leading role in the upcoming movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Mae Whitman, a vegan actress who stars in TV series Parenthood, has been chosen to join the cast of the upcoming indie movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Whitman will be playing the protagonist’s tattooed vegetarian girlfriend, and will be working alongside actors such as Logan Lerman and Emma Watson. According to Vegetarian Star, Whitman notes that it’s easy to be a vegan on her current job at Parenthood. “Sometimes they’ll bring a raw vegan chef. Some of the wardrobe gals are vegan and a lot of people are vegetarian. A lot of us want to eat healthier,” she says. Based on the novel of the same name written by Stephen Chbosky, the movie is slated to release sometime next year.
