The message behind the ad is to “be your healthiest, strongest, kindest self.” The 47-year-old actress is definitely living by the ad’s message.

In an interview, Elise dished about her vegan lifestyle with PETA whose motto is  “Animals are not ours to eat.” Also, she talked about how she transitioned into a vegetarian and then, vegan.

“[A]s I learned more about the abuses to animals and the way meat was brought to the table and everything that these creatures were going through,” she said. “It was just another motivation and reason for me to live the lifestyle that felt true to my soul and my spirit.”

She wanted to point out there are many positive perks to eating healthy, plant-based foods.

“My energy is fantastic,” she said. “It’s helped me stay youthful-looking and [have a] certain energy and vibrance that you get when you’re eating food that’s fresh from the earth.”
