Joaquin Phoenix recently starred in the DC Batman’s origin story “Joker,” directed by Todd Phillips. Phoenix has been vegan since the age of 3 years old, and has used his fame to help improve animal welfare. Prior to receiving an award at the Toronto International Film Festival for his performance in “Joker,” the star stopped by a local subway station to show his support for an animal welfare campaign called “Be Fair Be Vegan.” The actor was also spotted wearing an Animal Liberation Front sweatshirt to opening day screenings of “Joker” in Los Angeles.

He has been an animal advocate for years, starring in a vegan thanksgiving campaign in the 1990s. Since then, the “Walk the Line” star has lent his voice to vegan documentaries, 2005’s “Earthlings” and 2018’s “Dominion.” Most recently, he has been featured on a billboard in New York City, with the tagline End Speciesism. The star has also spoken out about wool, fishing, and the use of dogs in the leather industry.

Phoenix has recently gotten engaged to fellow vegan actor Rooney Mara. The couple met on the set of 2013’s “Her,” but fell in love during filming of 2018’s “Mary Magdalene.” Mara engages in animal activism as well, and joined Phoenix in a mock funeral procession for animals in June 2019. The goal of the campaign was to shed light on the abuse of animals in the food, fashion, entertainment, and scientific research industries.

Mara also founded a vegan fashion line called Hiraeth. It was born out of the desire to create a fashion line that is durable, fashionable, and is cruelty-free in regards to animals and in regards to humans.
