Kate Winslet Teams Up With PETA Against Foie Gras

December 30th, 2010 // Leave a Comment

Kate Winslet lent her voice to an expose by Peta on the foie gras industry, denouncing what the star considers a cruel industry. Foie gras, or fatty liver, comes from geese and ducks whose livers have been fattened into many times its normal size by force-feeding methods. While the practice has been banned in many countries, the U.S. continues to allow foie gras farms. Watch the video after the jump and learn more about this conflict-filled food.

A fresh-faced Winslet was spotted enjoying a guilt-free lunch in London yesterday. The mother of two will be relocating to the UK from New York to keep her children close to their father, her ex-husband Sam Mendes.
