Violett Beane is the latest actor using her celebrity status to promote an animal-friendly Vegan lifestyle. The star of “Truth or Dare” will be appearing in ads for peta2, PETA’s youth division.

Like most PETA ads, Violett Beane isn’t wearing much. In the ads, Violett Beane has marks that mimic a butcher’s diagram, showing off the parts of her body that would be considered “shoulder,” “ribs,” “loin,” “chuck,” and “round” on a typical livestock animal. The ads message is “All Animals Have the Same Parts. Have a Heart: Go Vegan.”

A vegan herself, reveals what inspired her to bare all for the campaign in an exclusive video interview, saying, “Whether it be your family dog or cat or a chicken or a pig or human beings, we all have the exact same parts. We all deserve the same amount of respect.”

She goes on to note how strange it is for humans to drink cow’s milk—”We stopped drinking our mother’s milk when we were really young. Why are we drinking someone else’s?”—and share some of her favorite nondairy dishes, including coconut yogurt and nachos with cashew cheese sauce. And thanks to vegan meals, she says, “When I go to the gym, I have more energy to work out. I feel so much better physically.”

According to PETA, every person who goes vegan spares more than 100 animals a year in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries. The move to Vegan also helps to drastically reduces his or her carbon footprint. Anyone interested in trying a Vegan lifestyle can get a free Guide to Going Vegan on the company’s website.

Beane joins a growing list of celebrities—including Noah Cyrus, Corey Fogelmanis, Sarah Jeffery, Emma Kenney, Evanna Lynch, Madelaine Petsch, Krysten Ritter, Skylar Stecker, and many others—who’ve teamed up with peta2 (whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”) to promote kindness to animals.
