While veganism may be referred to as a diet, James Cromwell says his decision to refrain from consuming animal products goes beyond the dinner table.
Cromwell is an ethical vegan, rejecting the animal cruelty seen in the food industry. But he also says that the end to animal agriculture is necessary in order to provide a sustainable and peaceful worldwide ecosystem.
Cromwell started the process of eliminating animal products from his diet decades ago, but it wasn’t until his portrayal of Farmer Hoggett in the 1995 classic film “Babe” that he says he realized the importance of the vegan lifestyle.
His activism for animal rights and welfare has taken on many forms over the years, but the fight is far from over.
To that end, he lent his voice to the eye-opening documentary “Farm to Fridge,” a revealing exposé of the horrors of animal agriculture.
James Cromwell joins Mike Walter on this week’s episode of Full Frame to share his thoughts on the importance of fighting for animal welfare around the world.
