Elaine Hendrix is a talented vegan actress who has been in “The Parent Trap,” “Inspector Gadget 2,” “What the Bleep Do We Know?!” and “Joan of Arcadia.” But her greatest passion is off-screen, working for the humane treatment of animals. She shares her home with her adopted rescue cats and dogs.
She also founded the non-profit animal rescue organization, Animal Rescue Corps. Elaine believes in maintaining a healthy balance of work, play, spirituality, and shopping. Isn’t she fabulous? 🙂
“I had no idea what was really happening to animals. They just existed, and I thought they were wonderful and life was grand. But when I saw this on the screen, I was so taken aback. It was as if somebody had kicked me in the stomach, and I doubled over and I just started sobbing uncontrollably. But it was that moment, that very poignant moment, that I said, ‘My life is changed forever.’ And from that moment forward, my diet’s changed, I bought a new car to get rid of my leather interior, I threw out all the leather out of my closet. I went through all of my cabinets and found every single product that had been tested on animals and I threw that out, and on and on and on. And so, now my life is so enriched and so incredible because of this relationship that I have with animals now.”
We certainly hope you get your birthday wish, Elaine! ❤
