Actress Alicia Silverstone—of Clueless fame—recently teamed up with her eight-year-old son Bear Blu Jarecki to recreate a 30-year-old advertisement made by Linda and Paul McCartney. Both produced by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the ads are striking in resemblance but instead of sending the “Go Veggie” message shown on Linda McCartney’s T-shirt, Silverstone wears an updated “Go Vegan” slogan.
“I’ve been lucky to be an activist alongside him for the last 25 years, and he’s just an incredible man and an incredible heart,” Silverstone said about McCartney. “I’m so sad I didn’t get to meet his beautiful wife, Linda. But doing anything in his honor is extraordinary.”
At 43-years-old, Silverstone has been a vegan for more than 20 years and credits veganism for Bear’s good behavior, whose favorite foods include lemon, sourdough bread, and kale.
