I feel better, I have more energy on and off the set, and I have the satisfaction of knowing that I'm doing something to help stop animal suffering.—Maggie Q
Fresh off her roles in Live Free or Die Hard and Mission: Impossible III (alongside Tom Cruise), rising star Maggie Q can only be described as hot. So it's fitting that for her latest "role," Maggie posed nearly nude in a bed of crimson chili peppers to spread the word that going vegetarian is the best way to "spice up your life" as well as help animals, your health, and the environment.
A vegetarian for many years, Maggie says that giving meat the boot is one of the most rewarding decisions she has ever made. "I feel better, I have more energy on and off the set, and I have the satisfaction of knowing that I'm doing something to help stop animal suffering." As Maggie knows, factory-farmed animals are confined to dark, filthy warehouses and are deprived of everything that is natural and important to them. They routinely undergo debeaking, tail-docking, and castration—all without any pain relief. In 2006 alone, more than 11 billion cows, pigs, ducks, geese, buffaloes, rabbits, and chickens were slaughtered in China.
Animal suffering definitely isn't hot, but Maggie is living proof that vegetarians are! Going vegetarian is also better for your health—eating meat and other animal products has been conclusively linked to heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and several types of cancer. But health benefits aside, we don't know who wouldn't want to eat their veggies after seeing Maggie's sexy ads!
