Joaquin Phoenix was today at the pig vigil in Toronto, Canada, alongside the Toronto Pig Save organization.

On Wednesday, Joaquin and Rooney Mara were at the vegan restaurant Animal Liberation Kitchen in Toronto to thank them for the food they had ordered the day before and to thank them for all the amazing work at the restaurant.

“He walked in yesterday around noon, with his family, and told me he had our food and it was amazing,” said ALK owner Tanya Spasic to blogTO on Thursday. “They had ordered a bunch of food for lunch the day before. Someone from the studio came to pick it up. Of course, I didn’t know it was for them.”

“We had a nice chat where he complimented the menu, and I thanked him for supporting animal-liberation groups in Toronto.” Upon learning that Spasic’s daughter Siki was a big fan of his, the actor suggested that the group commemorate the visit with a photo. “My daughter Siki was coming soon and she respects them so much, so I told him she will be crying to miss them,” Spasic said. “He said, ‘Let’s take a selfie for her.’ I didn’t want to ask him for a photo, he offered.”

Via Natalie Portman, Gabrielle Union, Joaquin Phoenix and Mahershala Ali are among the stars featured in a new campaign video PSA titled #SuingtoSaveLives, released Thursday, in which they call for the protection and safety of incarcerated individuals within the LA County Jail system from COVID-19.

In the PSA launched by the JusticeLA COVID-19 Response Coalition team, powered by Reform LA Jails, stars also including Sterling K. Brown, Kendrick Sampson, Matt McGorry, Busy Phillips, Sophia Bush, Brandon Flynn, Lauren Jauregui, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Shailene Woodley, and Dawn-Lyen Gardner each read a declaration from one of the currently incarcerated plaintiffs that showcase the struggles and unsafe conditions existing for them amid the pandemic.

The PSA follows an emergency class-action lawsuit filed six months ago against LA County leaders and the LA County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) for failing to protect the lives and safety of incarcerated individuals from contracting COVID-19 in county jails.

By reading the testimonies, the stars fight to bring awareness and urge for people to “step up as citizen plaintiffs in this lawsuit to show solidarity with those in our county jails.” Supporters will be able to sign their names to a petition as a citizen plaintiff to sue Sheriff Alex Villanueva and the LA Board of Supervisors.


Actor and activist Joaquin Phoenix wants to remind everyone that we all have the power to change the world—and much of that starts with what we eat.

The Oscar-winning actor, who has been vegan since the age of 3, has collaborated with PETA to speak out against everything from the wool industry to fishing. PETA’s 2019 Person of the Year is using his star power to raise awareness of the violence inflicted on animals on farms and to empower fans to take action by going vegan, in a print campaign shot by world renowned photographer Juergen Teller.


Celebrities worldwide have joined forces with the NGO Animals Asia to raise awareness of the illegal wildlife trade and its consequences, including the current pandemic.

Actor Joaquin Phoenix, who does not appear in the campaign video, is also spreading the message, appearing on social media wearing a T-shirt with the message “The only cure is kindness”.

In a statement obtained by PEOPLE, Phoenix said, “Regan Russell spent the final moments of her life providing comfort to pigs who had never experienced the touch of a kind hand.”

“While her tragic death has brought upon deep sorrow in the Animal Save community, we will honor her memory by vigorously confronting the cruelties she fought so hard to prevent by marching with Black Lives, protecting Indigenous rights, fighting for LGBTQ equality, and living a compassionate vegan life,” he said.

“The Ontario government can attempt to silence us with the passage of its Ag-Gag bill -Bill 156 – but we will never go away and we will never back down,” he said. “My heart goes out to the Toronto Animal Save community and to Regan’s lifelong partner, Mark Powell.”

Part of Russell’s fight was to repeal a new bill passed in Ontario, Bill 156, that will soon make it illegal for anyone to be on private property such as farms where animals intended for slaughter are usually held.
