In a new interview with news website Take Part, actor James Cromwell elucidates about the reasoning behind his commitment to veganism. Best known for his roles in Babe and this year’s awards buzzer The Artist, the actor has been a vegetarian since 1975 and became an ethical vegan in 1995 while on the set of Babe, in part due to the strongly empathetic perspective that the film takes toward its animal characters. Cromwell subsequently began working with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and Farm Sanctuary, and has advocated for animal welfare since, including narrating the short film Farm to Fridge. Cromwell advises readers of Take Part, “Work your way into not consuming animals and animal products and inform yourself … This process begins your consciousness.”
