Harley Quinn Smith Talks About Vegan Diet in Recent Interview
Harley Quinn Smith, the daughter of famed director Kevin Smith, recently had an interview with Just Jared about her latest film, working with her father, and about her new vegan lifestyle.
The Yoga Hosers star, who has been vegetarian for a year, was asked why she made the decision to adopt a vegan diet, and replied stating:
“I decided to commit to a vegan lifestyle because ever since I can remember I’ve had this insane connection to animals. I’ve always had such a passion for helping them so as I got older and expanded my knowledge on how cruel the meat/dairy industry are, I decided that it would be worth the sacrifice if it would mean that I would be helping animals in a very significant way.”
The 17-year-old, who was named after the DC Comics villain, was also asked about what foods she misses the most since making the change four months ago, and she replied:
“Initially, it was very difficult to say goodbye to cheese and ice cream, but honestly there are SO many amazing vegan options that at this point in the game I don’t even really miss non vegan food! If you stop thinking as vegan food as a replacement, but instead you start thinking of it as its own thing, it will become a lot easier to commit.”
A great answer to a very common question! To read the interview in its entirety, visit this link!
