Young actress Harley Quinn Smith and her father, famed director Kevin Smith, recently shared a meal at Los Angeles vegan restaurant Doomie’s Home Cookin’. The outing was documented with a video as part of a new campaign, #CompassionateMeal—launched by non-profit organization Farm Sanctuary—with the intent of inspiring vegans to introduce compassionate meals to non-vegan friends. While dining with her father, the 17-year-old revealed that she had been a vegetarian for several years before realizing that “there is no sense in not going all the way,” and eight months ago adopted a vegan diet. Kevin Smith responded jokingly, stating, “It’s about the only time a dad wants to hear his daughter say ‘there’s no sense in not going all the way.” While Kevin Smith was skeptical about sampling vegan food, after biting into a pulled “pork” sandwich, the director found it “100 percent convincing,” saying, “if this is being vegan, I [could] get my head around it.”
