DeVitto has been part of some
of Hollywood's best onscreen teams, starring in One Tree Hill, Pretty Little
Liars, and Vampire Diaries. But
now she's joining Team PETA to help animals in animal shelters find a happy Hollywood
ending and to speak out against the cruel fur industry.
Torrey's tips for star-like style?
Anyone not wearing fur automatically looks better than anyone who is.

young dog's life.
Actor Dawn Olivieri
(of Vampire Diaries
fame) might have jumped into the river herself. She told Marie Claire magazine, "I
will stop my car if there's a stray animal along the side of the road. I've
spent hours trying to catch lost dogs wearing collars so I can help people get
their pets back."

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.
