Angela Simmons Promotes Vegetarianism with PETA

October 5, 2011

Angela Simmons is the latest celebrity to get naked for PETA. She posed as Eve, of Adam and Eve, to promote vegetarianism and compared her devotion to her lifestyle to her religion.

“As a devout Christian, I feel it’s very important to show compassion for all of God’s creations — and adopting a vegetarian diet is the best way to keep innocent animals from suffering,” she said.

Simmons said she has been a vegetarian since 2010 and was inspired by her uncle Russell Simmons to change her diet.

“My uncle inspired me to become a vegetarian, a vegan, when I was young. He had me watch this video, I can’t remember the name of it, but I was only about 12 or 13 and he gave it to our family," Angela explained. "No one else watched it except me. At that age, I tried to be a vegetarian and I couldn’t do it because I was in a family that ate so much meat. But I finally made the change and it’s been like a year and a half now and I’m pretty proud of myself. I’m feeling good and I do work out a lot."

Earlier this year, Angela said she hopes to soon become a vegan.
