Sexiest Vegetarian alum Tobey Maguire made no bones about not wanting to sit on cow skin.
While filming The Great Gatsby in Australia, Tobey was a great envoy for animals, asking Bazmark Films to return the Mercedes-Benz it had loaned him for his stay and have the leather upholstery replaced with vinyl.
