Stranger Things star Sadie Sink revealed she went vegan almost five years ago, after working on a film with Woody Harrelson

The 18-year-old actor made the comment in a recent interview with Glamour magazine. 

Sadie Sink interview

She said: “I’d always told myself I could never go vegan. I’m from Texas, my family are big meat-eaters.

“But, I decided I was going to give it a shot and I went ahead and did it. I made the switch almost five years ago after I worked with Woody Harrelson on a movie. 

“He’s a very passionate vegan and his entire family is vegan as well, so by spending time with them, I was able to learn that a vegan lifestyle is totally doable and it’s not as hard as it may seem. 

“It’s definitely something I still have to work on. You make mistakes in the beginning, but you just learn as you go.”

Vegan skincare

When asked about skincare, Sink replied: “May Lindstrom does great vegan skincare. I love to use the face oil – that’s the one product I’ll let myself splurge on. 

“It’s really special, it makes me feel good and it smells amazing. I think it’s definitely important to look at how things are being made.”

Sink’s Glamour interview also discusses her relationship with co-star Millie Bobbie Brown, social media, and her make-up essentials.

‘It’s World Vegan Day’

Last year, Sink celebrated World Vegan Day with her 12.6 million Instagram followers. 

The celeb posted a photo plugging cruelty-free brand Maria Nila Stockholm. She captioned the post: “[The brand] is 100 percent Vegan and Cruelty-Free and a strong believer in keeping animals apart from human vanity.”

Sink also urged her fans to support Cruelty Free International’s campaign to ban animal testing n cosmetics globally.
