Cloris Leachman, 82, the former Miss Chicago and "Dancing With the Stars" grande dame has taken a natural approach to her new ad for PETA encouraging a vegetarian lifestyle.

Wearing a dress made entirely of cabbage and lettuce leaves, Leachman (who gave up eating meat over 40 years ago) the ad shot by photographer Robert Sebree encourages people to "Let Vegetarianism Grow on You."

The vegetable ballgown is actually more coverage than Leachman has had in the past. Nearly a dozen years ago she appeared on the cover of Alternative Medicine magazine covered in nothing but body paint.

Brill Bundy has spent her entire career covering TV and pop culture. This is what happens when your parents try and limit your viewing habits to three shows a week. Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
