Kate Mara Poses in Sister Rooney Mara's New Animal-Free Clothing Line!

Kate Mara is supporting sister Rooney Mara‘s new animal-free clothing line, Hiraeth!

The 35-year-old House Of Cards actress posed in the clothing for international animal rights nonprofit Animal Equality‘s Their Voice Summer 2018 issue, and also opened up about her thoughts on equality, Pose, and veganism.

Here’s what she had to say…

On what inspired her to become vegan: “I have always been an animal lover and was a vegetarian for a while off and on. When I read my friend Kimberly Snyder’s book called The Beauty Detox Solution it solidified my belief that we aren’t meant to consume animal products (whether you’re an animal lover, activist or not). Learning about the process that our bodies go through to digest meat and dairy was eye opening for me. My love of animals and animal activism has grown over the years so it was a no brainer for me to become a vegan. It took me a little while to fully give up cheese; otherwise, it was easy.”

On Pose:Pose is a show that features the largest LGBTQ cast and crew, on and off camera. It explores the ballroom culture in NYC in the 1980’s. I’m excited to be a part of a series that will educate people about an amazing community that has been marginalized for so long. It’s funny and heartbreaking, but at the end of the day the show is about family and how no matter where you come from or what gender you may be, we all just want to belong to something and feel love.”

On advocating for animal and human rights: “I feel it is my moral obligation to give a voice to animals because they cannot fight for themselves. They do not choose to be ripped from their families or trapped in cages their entire lives. If we aren’t trying to help others (whether human or animal) and give back in some way, then we shouldn’t expect the world to be a very nice place to live.”

    I’m not going to find fault with someone who is a vegetarian or vegan, but the idea that humans weren’t meant to eat animals or use animal products is ridiculous. The entirety of humankind would not be without animals, if we didn’t starve to death, we would have frozen to death.

    I think I’d start questioning about the shit being fed TO the animals we eat. The shit being fed to our animals and sprayed on our plants is destroying us. GMOs changed the DNA of wheat. Wheat of today is so vastly different from 100 years ago, I wouldn’t doubt it’s the new DNA that has since evolved is why people get so sick. Our bodies haven’t evolved.

    But I understand that in order to keep the world sustainable, we are eventually going to have to give up animals. But you can’t change the world by demanding people stop eating meat right now, cold turkey.

    I think we should focus on feeding our animals better, providing better, more humane living conditions and humanely killing them. Also, those that abuse animals should be punished severely with fines and jail time. It’s absolutely disgusting how horrifically these animals are treated. Living in fear and pain and then being butchered, sometimes improperly.
