A Little Bird Told Us … Hollywood Gossip

Published by Michelle Kretzer.

Beloved actor Michael Clarke Duncan from The Green Mile is keeping his mile-high frame in shape with a green vegetarian diet. The star of the new show The Finder is also a huge animal lover!

Our pal Russell Simmons tweeted about the letter that we sent to his pal Dr. Dre regarding his ear atrocities, while Ashley Judd was busy asking her Twitter followers not to patronize circuses:


The Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act has a new ally—Harry’s Law. A recent episode tackled the issue of whether apes could be defined as persons under the law, with Kathy Bates’ character arguing, “Apes are a lot less inhuman than we would like to think….There’s a qualitative shift happening in the way we view the animal world, especially when it comes to apes.”

Carrie Underwood always views the animal world as deserving protection. When she spotted an injured dog on the highway, she pulled over, bundled up the dog, and gently loaded her into the car. After the animal received emergency veterinary care, Underwood took the dog to her house to recover and cried when she had to say goodbye after finding the pup an adoptive home.

Underwood was PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian of 2005, and plenty of other sexy stars have turned heads to change hearts. Check out the Mirror‘s ranking of PETA and our affiliates’ top naked celebrity ads.
