Ethan Hawke Is A Vegetarian PETA Vampire

For his latest movie, Daybreakers — about a world run over with vampires that “harvest” humans for blood — Ethan Hawke plays a blood-sucker with a conscience; eventually revolting against his own kind in an effort to save the human race. When asked in a recent interview with The Huffington Post whether he considered his vampire to be a vegetarian, he said yes. “I thought of him as a person who worked for PETA who got forced into trying to help the slaughterhouse. He has a lot of really valid points; that whole part of the movie I love.”

Hawke, whose mother is a committed vegetarian, admitted in 2007 that he has had a rough time going all the way with the diet. “I’ve been trying very hard [to go vegetarian] for the last five years and sometimes I succeed and sometimes I don’t.”

But back to the movie. Hawke says Daybreakers also offers a message of conservation. “It just happens to also have a great undercurrent of destroying your natural resources. Everything they’re saying about the humans could go for the polar ice caps or the oil industry or the meat industry; you can insert whatever you want.”

BTW, for what it’s worth, I saw the movie and thought it was awful.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
