Angeles -- Wearing a corset and calaveras-inspired makeup and standing in
a fog-filled graveyard, Twilight star Christian Serratos—known to
fans of the series as Bella's friend Angela—is featured in a Día de los
Muertos–inspired ad for PETA that reads, "Respect Life. Go
Vegetarian." The ad, which was shot by top celebrity photographer Robert
Sebree goes on to say, "Factory farms are hell for animals, and their
death is slow and painful. Help animals by not eating them." A
high-resolution version of the ad is available here.

realized what I was eating, and I didn't

testicles cut off without being given any painkillers, fish are suffocated or

Serratos' work with PETA began when she was 14-years-old and
