Cosmopolitan magazine just released its list of "Fun, Fearless Males of 2011," and these boys aren't just kind to the eyes, they're kind to animals too.
The Vampire Diaries' smoldering Ian Somerhalder may play a "cold one" on TV, but he won't date a girl who doesn't have a warm heart for animals. The proud pop to three rescued cats says, "I don't care how hot a girl is—if she doesn't like animals, it would be a major, major problem."
And let's gossip for a minute about Penn Badgley's deal-breaker. The Gossip Girl hunk says he can't handle a girl who doesn't love dogs: "I find that if someone doesn't like animals, I am a little suspicious of them." Badgley definitely gets an Easy A from PETA.
PETA pal Chad Ochocinco danced his way onto the list because of his confidence and candor, both of which served him well when he took it all off for his anti-fur ad for PETA.
And the Fun, Fearless Male of the Year? Sexiest Vegetarian in the U.K. Russell Brand, who celebrated Christmas with his wife, Katy Perry, and a Tofurky.

… to publicly thank The Pretty Reckless vocalist and Gossip Girl star for making the compassionate, responsible decision to have her pooch neutered.
It's no secret that we at PETA are nuts (geddit?) about the pluses of spaying and neutering—two safe, simple procedures that help to reduce the number of homeless dogs and cats.
So we at PETA would like to submit the following poem in Momsen's honor:
Oh, Taylor Momsen! You're sure to seeA media spectacle 'Cause you lit your dog's (detached) testicles
But at PETA, we stand and applaud The choice you made, it should be law To neuter your friendAnd help put an end To the homelessness of millions who have paws

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.
