celeb who won't mind too much when awards season winds down? Octavia Spencer. She loves cheering for her friend Jessica Chastain, but she's getting antsy
for her The Help costar to cook her some more vegan soul
food like the vegan fried
chicken they made on set. Jessica, one of PETA's reigning Sexiest Vegetarian
Celebrities, has been scooping up the nominations, so to tide Octavia over, we've
sent her her own vegan soul-food cookbook. Maybe soon the friends will be

can scoop up Robin Quivers'
new vegan cookbook, The Vegucation of Robin: How Real Food Saved My Life. Or perhaps they'll take
their happy reunion to Chef
Tal Ronnen's new vegan restaurant and bar, Crossroads,
opening in L.A.
Hilaria and Alec Baldwin are also celebrating an
exciting new venture. The couple is expecting their first child in late summer. PETA is
sending the vegan mom an early shower gift: a copy of Skinny Bitch Bun
in the Oven.
at just 15 years old, pop prince Greyson Chance thinks it's time he
gave meat-free eating a chance. When he posted to Twitter, "first day of
being a vegetarian. can I do this?" his
fans responded in droves with words of encouragement. We think that we know a few more folks who might
be cheering Greyson on:
animals weren't getting "tweet outs" on Twitter, they were getting major
ups from Maggie Q in The Huffington
Post. The Nikita star spent the majority of her
interview talking about her new PETA campaign titled, "Fight Climate
Change With Diet Change—Go Veg," and detailing the environmental destruction and cruelty of the meat industry.
If Maggie ever decides
to get out of acting, we think she's got a future in animal rights.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
