Exclusive Interview With Patricia De Leon

Published by PETA.

I don’t think anybody can blame Joe, Ray Romano’s character on TNT’s Men of a Certain Age, for making Patricia De León the woman of his fantasies. This former Miss Panama has jaw-dropping good looks and a soft spot for animals, and we’re thrilled that she’s joined our campaign to promote a vegetarian lifestyle.

After watching our slaughterhouse video footage, several Thanksgivings ago De León gave animals something to be thankful for by ditching meat for good. In our exclusive interview, she explains how eating cruelty-free saves animals and contributes to good health. And if you think she’s the cutest thing you’ll see in the video, think again. Her two adorable dogs make an appearance too.
