Anne Hathaway Says Sayonara to Sushi

Written by PETA | December 23, 2010

In an interview with the U.K.’s Metro, Anne Hathaway reveals that she has been a “commitment-shy vegetarian” since she was about 12, but she says that she strengthened her resolve not to eat her furry or feathered friends while in England filming her upcoming movie One Day. Fish, however, were still on the menu—until someone gave her a copy of Jonathan Safran Foer‘s bestseller Eating Animals.

“I read it and that was it for me in terms of being able to eat fish,” she says. “I just can’t support the way fish are farmed and caught. So when my friends say, ‘Do you want to go out and have sushi?’ I go out with them and order my cucumber rolls, and they’re, like, ‘Really?’ No matter how tempting it is to have a delicious piece of sushi, I just can’t.”

Anne, whenever you’re in L.A., I have it on good authority that you can’t go wrong with the Caterpillar Roll (barbeque seitan and avocado) at Shojin Organic & Natural. You’ll never miss the slimy sea kitten flesh, I promise.
