You know it's going to be fun when longtime PETA pal Pamela Anderson and PETA's 2009 Woman of the Year Ellen DeGeneres get together. When Pamela appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, precocious Pam showed that she can toss an animal rights message into any situation as easily as she can stop traffic.
Pam told Ellen that the night before the show, she had to call the courthouse to find out if she was needed for jury duty. "I don't think I'd be a very good juror," Pamela admitted. "You know, 'If you're not vegetarian—guilty!'"
Ellen, a vegan herself, burst out laughing along with the audience, and Ellen later complimented Pam on all the great work she does for animals. And look who's talking, Ellen—animals are crazy about you too. If ever there were a green room we'd like to hang out in, this one takes the vegan cake.
