Kind of funny, and sweet. Let’s make sure, at the least, that our turkey doesn’t come from horrible, mean factory farms.

How do animal rights affect Joaquin’s life?

Joaquin Phoenix: That’s just it. Animal rights is a part of my everyday life. When you live by example, you create a certain level of awareness. Friends of mine, people I have never discussed animal rights or vegetarianism with, are adopting vegetarian habits because they see it.
