As Agent 007, Sir Roger Moore battled the bad guys—but as a real-life Knight of the British Empire, Moore has spent the past several years battling the cruel foie gras industry.
When Moore heard about PETA Europe's campaign to urge Selfridges to stop selling foie gras—he sent a private letter to Selfridges' owner, Galen Weston, offering to buy up the company's entire remaining stock of the cruelly produced food if Weston agreed never to restock it again.
Always the classy gentleman, Moore gave Weston the chance to make this deal behind the scenes—but Selfridges has not responded to Moore's generous offer, so he has taken it to the airwaves. Check out his recent interview on the topic.

It looks like James Bond himself, actor Daniel Craig, is a little confused as to what makes a good breakfast. While filming Quantum of Solace, Craig decided he was going to stick with the ideal of a traditional English breakfast, no matter what—so he had bacon shipped to him on location. In case you haven't heard, that location was Italy—and yes, the bacon came all the way from England.
Wow. You know you have a meat addiction when you have to get your pork products shipped internationally!
So to help him out, our friends at PETA Europe decided to send Craig a sample of the best faux bacon available. Fakin' bacon comes free of heart-clogging cholesterol and heart-stopping cruelty (like cutting off the teeth, tails, and testicles of piglets without giving them painkillers and slaughtering pigs while they are still conscious), so it's a win-win situation for any bacon lover!
And by the way, I'd also like to point out that eating meat has been linked to impotence. After all, cholesterol can clog arteries that lead to all organs, right? And that's one problem that the fictional James Bond would never come across.

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.
