Actress Thandie Newton is speaking out about factory farming, and its impact on animals, people and the planet.

In a recent interview the “Crash” star said, “I’m a vegetarian myself. It’s not so much about the animals. I don’t want any kind of suffering of any living form but it’s more to do with the awareness that so much of the meat on the planet is being produced by factory farms. Animals are being pumped full of growth hormones which are then getting fed to our kids. And it’s affecting the water, environment.”

She goes on to discuss how factory farms cause more damage to the planet than all transportation combined and how consumers are being kept in the dark about the real conditions. Newton says, “We are being duped and controlled by huge multinationals that are concerned about the short term, not the long term and don’t care about the individual. You know darn well that these people would never put a piece of nonorganic meat in their mouths or their children’s.”

Newton, star of the new TV series “Rogue”, has an interest in everyday heroes which is why she loves her new role on the show. An outspoken activist on women’s issues, animals and the planet, we can see why she’d attach to the character. Newton said about it, “In an age when we’re dealing with superheroes all the time in movies, I really enjoy trying to find those superheroes who are just among us.”
