March of the Hot Vegan Army - Day #3 - Maggie Q

Maggie Q

Know her from: Tv's Nikita, movies like Rush Hour II and Around the World in 80 Days (both starring Jackie Chan), Live Free or Die Hard, and Mission Impossible III, as well as hosts of magazine covers

Why she's vegan: Animal rights primarily, but also for health and global concerns. She is not just a pretty face for sure. She served as a producer in the film Earthlings in 2007, a film which has been nicknamed the "vegan-maker" due to it's unblinking and graphic look at the lives (and deaths) of animals on factory farms

Why she's awesome: Maggie Q is a multi-talented model, actress, activist, martial-artist, and stuntwoman, who grew up participating in swimming and track and field competitions. She has helped to bring awareness to matters of animal rights and human health around the world, teaming up with PETA, the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine, Best Friend's Animal Society, and Animals Asia Foundation, bringing her global fame to bear (and to bears) for good.

Keep fighting the good fight Maggie. As George Patton said, "If a man does his best, what else is there?"
