Richard Linklater has made news for his Oscar-nominated film about an adolescent’s 12 years of life in Texas, Boyhood.
The critics will soon give accolades to a spin-off that follows the director through his last three decades of eating vegetarian, Veghood.
In a short video for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Linklater can be seen throughout the years discussing what a plant-based diet has done for him and animals.
Linklater discusses the number of animals vegetarians save every year, the impact the meat industry has on the environment and how a vegetarian diet can keep you looking great through the decades.
“So it’s been over 30 years since I first went vegetarian,” says Linklater. “By my calculations, that’s over 3,000 animals saved, so that’s pretty cool. And also apparently it’s been pretty healthy. Look—I don’t think I’ve aged at all!”
Like other proud Texans, he’s quick to brag about the fact that everything–including the produce–is bigger in the state.
“We have everything, and it’s bigger,” he says. “We have bigger vegetables. Bigger fruit. The best. Because it’s Texas.”
