With the global release of The Joker this week, the spotlight has been on this man Joaquin Phoenix. A vegan from the age of 3, he has not only achieved greatness in the acting world but also in the animal activism world too. With a string of campaigns from the likes of PETA, Mercy For Animals, Earthlings & countless others, he is respected and active in a way quite rare for a Hollywood identity.
And he isn’t just a voice from afar, Phoenix is a hands-on activist who joins regular vigils, ‘Save Movement’ protests and attends marches for animal causes.
In this feature, we thought we would look back over all the times he has spoken up for the voiceless and promoted the good cause that is veganism. This first video shows his true character and is an absolute inspiration to us here at LGV.
