The young performer recently sat down with PETA2.com to talk about veganism, dogfighting and dissection alternatives. In the video, Olstead shares how she went vegetarian.
“I was on a sitcom when I was about 12,” said the actress. “And they had this one line where one of the characters was vegetarian and she said, ‘No thanks, I don’t eat anything with a face.’ And I just turned white. From that moment I suddenly realized that what I was eating was alive and had a mother and breathed; and it suddenly became so appalling.”
Renee goes on to encourage dissection alternatives and to discuss the joys of adopting animals from shelters. We like!
