Robert confessed that he initially refused to adopt rescued animals because he was very sad about the situation they faced, but he couldn’t resist taking them in forever.
Now he says he couldn’t live without them.

“She’s the most amazing creative producer in movie history, and I make faces for money and chicken, but no, I do n’t eat chicken anymore . I am adopting a plant-based diet,” she said.
The actor created the foundation called The Footprint Coalition, with the aim of merging robotics and nanotechnology to clean the planet.
Your decision to adopt a vegan diet will contribute to this end because the livestock industry is one of the largest generators of plastic waste in the oceans and promotes climate change.

He jumped on the trend of adopting a vegan lifestyle when he learned about the unfair treatment suffered by the animals we consume.
“I frequently ate something called ‘shark fin soup’ and I didn’t know. I asked my mom if that was made from a real shark fin and she said, ‘Oh no, honey, of course not.’ After discovering that it was, I became very sad, I cried for three weeks.
It seemed even worse to me that they only cut off the fins of the sharks and that they are there without being able to move. That really scared me, I used to have nightmares that they were in the ocean with no fins and I couldn’t eat any fish anymore.”
The followers of Robert Downey and all the real-life heroes who join the fight for the defense of animals and our planet applaud his initiatives that inspire others to work for the same cause.
