Maggie Q Fights Climate Change With Diet Change

"Nikita" star Maggie Q has stripped for a cause close to her heart. The actress reveals all in a new People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) campaign poster aimed at convincing people to eliminate meat products from their diet.

The edgy new PETA billboard reads, "Fight Climate Change With Diet Change. Go Veg" and features the vegan actress naked with her body painted like planet earth.

The poster debuted above the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles on Thursday and will remain there for one month.

“There’s really nothing tied to this issue that isn’t sort of dark and needs to be sort of fixed, in a big way. There are so many issues tied to the meat industry: social, environmental, humanitarian – all of them. I know that when I’m eating that I’m not hurting the planet; I’m not hurting other people on this planet; I’m not hurting animals; and I’m not hurting nature.”

She adds, “Truly, the weight of the world depends on us. It depends on our choices and I that wish people would pick up a book, or watch a documentary, and understand that their choices can really make a difference.”

PETA's meat-free campaign includes a bunch of celebrities, including Alicia Silverstone, Casey Affleck, Paul McCartney, Joaquin Phoenix and Forest Whitaker. All of these stars have teamed up with the group to promote vegetarian and vegan eating.
