The vegan Alicia Silverstone is set to star in the film Butter, a comedy about competitive butter-sculpting in a small Midwestern town. She's playing the adoptive mother of a young orphan girl who "shows exceptional skill in shaping the dairy product." Silverstone, you may recall, once said about going vegan: "You can hear your needs and desires more clearly. You're just more juicy—there's just this lightness that happens."
