'Transformers' Actress Purposefully Doesn't Build Relationships With Animals She Eats
After replacing Megan Fox as Shia Labeouf’s love interest in the “Transformer”s franchise, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been doing quite a few interviews. A topic she’s particularly happy to talk about? Her food choices.
The model turned actress grew up on a farm and definitely sees a difference between the animals she cuddles and the animals she eats. She told Complex Magazine last month, “I know where my food comes from. I don’t get sad ’cause you don’t build relationships with those animals. I’m a farm girl; there’s the pigs, that’s the dog that I play with and love, but it’s the pig that’s gonna be in the freezer next month.”
So, by that logic, the only difference between a dog and a pig is what they are used for. It could just as easily be reversed with the dog in the freezer and the pig getting the tummy rub. Perhaps if the actress spent time hanging out with the pig, she might consider calling him friend rather than food.
In positive news, she’s a huge fan of organic farming and thinks that processed foods with tons of chemicals and additives just aren’t right. She said, “Sometimes you go into a supermarket and the apples are all the same size and color, but that’s not what apples are supposed to look like. Go to an orchard or an organic farm, and the apples are sometimes knobby, but they taste better.”
