Many celebrities have made the switch to live a vegetarian lifestyle over the years as more benefits of the practice have surfaced, as well as more evidence of animal cruelty involved in food manufacturing.

But for long time vegetarian Abbie Cornish, who stars alongside Bradley Cooper in the new film Limitless, she’s been a staunch vegetarian since she discovered what the word meant at 13 years old— well before she was exposed to the limelight— or any light, it seems.

Says the Australian actress, 28, “I grew up on a farm, so I wasn’t indulged in magazines, newspapers, internet, television…and so for some reason, I was never exposed to what a vegetarian was. As soon as I found out, I found out at a dinner because someone wasn’t eating meat, and I remember it was such an abstract idea, and so I questioned them about it. That night, I told my mom I wanted to become a vegetarian. For me, it was immediate. It was a way of life that felt so right to me, almost like the way certain people feel about their religion. So for me, it was instant. I’ve never felt better from that moment.”

Although the star is a supporter of animal rights, she’s also a supporter of the human right to choose, and says she “respects other peoples’ decisions to eat meat,” and hopes those who do are educated and aware.

This point of view varies drastically from PETA activist Pam Anderson‘s who, if you recall, has an automatic ruling on those who eat meat.

To each his own!
