Wearing only an apron made of fresh lettuce leaves, the “Tia and Tamera” star is now part of a long list of celebrities who have posed practically nude for the racy organization.
And to kick off the new campaign, Tia and her family dropped by PETA’s Bob Barker Building on Monday to unveil the ad in person. The new ad was shot by top celebrity photographer Robert Sebree, with the costume made by Mia Gyzander.
“I wanted to become a voice for my community. … I wanted to educate my culture about the benefits of becoming vegan,” Mowry explained in an exclusive PETA interview. “The more you learn about the benefits of being vegan, the more you become alive and the more you become aware of why it’s a really great decision. Not only am I helping myself, I’m helping the animals out there, I’m helping the environment—going vegan, I feel great.”
Going vegan is a great way to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, strokes, diabetes, and obesity, and it saves animals from extreme suffering on factory farms, in slaughterhouses, and on the decks of fishing boats. Vegan meals are also “green,” as raising animals for food is responsible for an enormous amount of water pollution, land degradation, and greenhouse-gas emissions.
Mowry, known for her long-running series Sister, Sister and The Game, will appear in the upcoming Nick at Nite comedy series Instant Mom.
