For Immediate Release:

Sometimes when people quit smoking, their bodies buck at the change—even though it’s a healthy one—and they start smoking again. But in the end, most people make the switch a permanent one. PETA knows Anne Hathaway to be kind and to care deeply about animals. She may have received some bad advice, so we’re here to help her with healthy recipes and copies of our extremely popular vegan starter kit, which makes going vegan the right way very easy. We’ll be sending her a vegan gift basket, complete with Gardein’s delicious faux-fish fillets, in the hope that she’ll consider how humane, healthy, fortifying, and delicious vegan meals can be.
