Cloris Leachman’s Salad Days

Published by PETA.

Today, amid a flurry of tourists and cameras, PETA unveiled our new “Let Vegetarianism Grow on You” ad in Times Square. In the ad, the always witty Cloris Leachman wears a dress of red cabbage and leaf lettuce. The release follows last week’s publication of the results of the biggest medical study ever to conclude that avoiding meat gives people a better chance of living longer. Who better to illustrate the point than Cloris, a vibrant 82-year-old vegetarian?
