Daryl Hannah Talks Vegetarianism

June 26, 2012

Actress Daryl Hannah is an environmental activist so it comes as no surprise that she has been a vegetarian since she was just 7-years-old. Hannah recalls her story of going meat-free with MSNBC

"I was on a trip with my parents in Wisconsin and didn't want to go into a restaurant they went to, so they left me in the car," Hannah said. "I was walking around the parking lot (when it was still safe to do that) and I saw this truck with a baby calf. I went over to it and kissed and hugged it through the railings. When the driver came out, I asked what the calf's name was. He said 'veal, tomorrow morning at 7 a.m.' After that, I could no longer disassociate what was on my plate for the creature that it had been. It wasn't an ethical or health choice, it was purely emotional. When you make a decision for yourself, it's often the best decision for everything."
