Vegan actress and outspoken advocate Alicia Silverstone recreates vintage Linda and Paul McCartney ad with 8-year-old son Bear Blu Jarecki.
Nearly 30 years ago, legendary rockers and animal rights pioneers Paul and Linda McCartney had a very simple message to share with the world: “STOP Eating Animals. GO Veggie.” Today, that message is as important as ever, so PETA teamed up with another pair of famous animal rights activists to recreate this iconic photo and spread the word about going vegan.
Actress Alicia Silverstone—of Clueless fame—recently teamed up with her eight-year-old son Bear Blu Jarecki to recreate a 30-year-old advertisement made by Linda and Paul McCartney. Both produced by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the ads are striking in resemblance but instead of sending the “Go Veggie” message shown on Linda McCartney’s T-shirt, Silverstone wears an updated “Go Vegan” slogan.
“I’ve been lucky to be an activist alongside Paul for the last 25 years, and he’s just an incredible man with an incredible heart,” Silverstone said about McCartney. “I’m so sad I didn’t get to meet his beautiful wife, Linda. But doing anything in his honor is extraordinary.”
At 43-years-old, Silverstone has been a vegan for more than 20 years and credits veganism for Bear’s good behavior, whose favorite foods include lemon, sourdough bread, and kale.
“The meat trade’s threat to our health can be halted, and there are hopeful signs that people are starting to realize that this must be done to secure a brighter future for our children and theirs,” McCartney said.
