Lisa Edelstein is Nude in PETA Ad

PETA has finally found a way to make eating vegetables attractive… lying Lisa Edelstein’s naked body on an assortment of greens.

Edelstein aka Dr. Cuddy from Fox’s ‘House, stars in PETA’s latest campaign encouraging people to eat more veggies. Edelstein is a vegetarian and credits her toned 44-year old body to eliminating meat from her body and eating healthy.

The photo features Edelstein lying on a bed of kale and other leafy lettuce-type vegetables with the slogan, “Eat Green To Go Green”, with a small captain reading “Eat your veggies to help stop cruelty to animals and save the environment one bite at a time.”

Edelstein became a vegetarian at the age of 15.

“I was never a big meat eater—I was always picky. I was raised in a kosher home, and if you’re raised with a food restriction, it’s not that difficult to have another kind of food restriction,” Edelstein told Prevention magazine.

“At some point, I had a dream that I was eating chicken. But in the dream, I understood that it was actually miniature human legs and arms. My brain was connecting muscle and bone to another animal. Once I had made that connection, it just wasn't something I wanted to eat.”

Edelstein chose to pose for PETA to spread awareness about the effect eating meat has not only on yourself, but the environment.

“The meat industry is really toxic to the environment. The cattle industry- besides the fact there are a lot of cruel things happening- the manure is extremely toxic.”
