Actress Portia de Rossi has a lot going for her. She starred in the hilarious show Arrested Development, has a new book out, is married to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, and to top it all off, she’s a recent vegan convert.

In an interview with O Magazine, Rossi revealed that she considered meat “a necessary part of life,” until about five years ago when she had an Aha! moment. The actress describes one morning on her farm, where she and DeGeneres had four cows, two calves and a horse. When she couldn’t sleep she went out to a back pasture to check on the animals, and witnessed something that changed her life, “The cows formed a single-file line, and one by one they touched noses with the new horse as a greeting.”

Rossi went on to say, “I started crying and thought, I can’t possibly keep eating these animals.” Adding, “I was forced to confront the fact that I had chosen to remain ignorant of their nature because it was just easier that way.”

A lot of people seem to have these wake-up call moments when it comes to saying no to meat. For those that have made the switch, what was yours?
