Watch Joaquin Phoenix rescue cow and her calf from slaughterhouse

by Mike Santorini

Joaquin Phoenix is putting his money where his mouth is.

The Oscar-winning actor recently visited a slaughterhouse near Los Angeles and helped liberate a mother cow and her baby calf. Phoenix, of course, strongly criticized the dairy industry – among other talking points – throughout Hollywood’s awards season. Most notably, the 45-year-old delivered a rambling speech at the Academy Awards while accepting an award for his performance in “Joker.”

Take a look:

Phoenix’s rescue efforts came as a result of a recent conversation with Anthony Di Maria, president and CEO of Manning Beef in Pico Rivera, Calif. Despite their many differences, the two came were able to come to a mutual understanding.

“I never thought I’d find friendship in a slaughterhouse, but meeting Anthony and opening my heart to his, I realize we might have more in common than we do differences,” Phoenix said of the meeting. “Without his act of kindness, Liberty and her baby calf, Indigo, would have met a terrible demise.”
