To say that we're stoked to see The Runaways, which hits theaters nationwide today, is an understatement. While The Runaways may have been "Born to Be Bad," their iconic frontwoman and longtime vegan Joan Jett is all compassion. (Of course, there are also the much-buzzed performances by Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning to look forward to). To celebrate the release of The Runaways, we're revisiting a Joan Jett classic—the "veggie testimonial" that she filmed for us while recording her latest album, Sinner.
If this is part of Joan's "Bad Reputation," I don't think I want to be good.
Have you already seen The Runaways? Give us your review: We'd love to know what you think about the movie.

With all the post-Twilight buzz, movie critics are all over the news that Kristen Stewart (along with costar Dakota Fanning) has taken on a leading role in a new film, The Runaways, about iconic female rock star—and vegetarian extraordinaire—Joan Jett.
As the executive producer, Joan has been closely involved in the making of the movie. But we know that she never lets her busy schedule interrupt her dedication to animals. While recording her most recent album, she recorded a "veggie testimonial" for PETA, and now she's found time to visit some sanctuary friends.
We're sure that a movie about this trailblazing rocker will be a hit with both animal and music lovers alike. Now, turn up "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" on your stereo and leave a comment below to let us know which other animal rights icons' lives would make for an inspiring movie.

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.
