Los Angeles – Wearing an edible curve-hugging bodysuit made entirely of bok choy, Madelaine Petsch stars in a brand-new ad for peta2, PETA’s youth division, that proclaims, “Turn Over a New Leaf—Go Vegan.”
While she may play sultry villain Cheryl Blossom on The CW’s hot new series Riverdale, Petsch has a huge heart for animals. Raised vegetarian, she went vegan as a young teen. “I turned vegan [at] 14,” she says in an exclusive video interview with peta2. “I felt a lot healthier. I didn’t feel as lethargic because I wasn’t eating milk or eggs.”
Every person who goes vegan spares more than 100 animals a year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s industrialized meat, egg, and dairy industries—and drastically reduces his or her carbon footprint. peta2 offers a free Guide to Going Vegan on its website.
Petsch joins a growing list of celebrities—including Krysten Ritter, Corey Fogelmanis, Skylar Stecker, Torrey DeVitto, Hayes Grier, Laura Vandervoort, and many others—who’ve teamed up with peta2 (whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”) to promote kindness to animals.
