Joaquin Phoenix Talks About Coming-Of-Age Veganism

The Hollywood star says it was a childhood fishing trip that helped him see the inhumanity of eating meat.

Movie star and ethical eater Joaquin Phoenix recently talked about his coming-of-age vegan experience in an interview with Cover Media. The Walk the Line actor said he first understood where meat came from when he and his three siblings went fishing with their parents. After the fish were caught, the animals were thrown against the side of the boat, which spurred an outcry from the children. “We literally screamed at our parents and said, ‘We are never going to eat meat again’ … it was undeniable that it was brutal, barbaric and horrible for us,” says Phoenix. Phoenix continues to be an outspoken animal-welfare activist and vegan, and has appeared in numerous public service announcements for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to raise awareness about the inhumanity of the animal agriculture industry.
