Ellen DeGeneres, Gordon Ramsay, and Entourage star Adrian Grenier are among the many stars who have recently done something noteworthy for animals:

  • Guess who was named MVP of the MLB All-Star Game? Yep, that would be vegetarian royalty Prince Fielder
  • Just when you thought you couldn’t love PETA’s 2009 Woman of the Year Ellen DeGeneres any more, she ups and rescues a sick kitten
  • First of all, who knew that socialite Cornelia Guest was a vegan? While you digest that, consider the news that she’s launching a vegan handbag line. Are you listening, Paris Hilton?
  • Morrissey puts some muscle behind his “no meat” concert clause.
  • Bluefin tunas join Adrian Grenier’s entourage. 
  • Weird Al Yankovic finds out the hard way that Sir Paul McCartney doesn’t like chicken soup.
  • First, Cupcake Wars crowned a vegan winner. Then Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi returned to her vegetarian roots. Now Master Chef, home of notoriously grumpy gourmet Gordon Ramsay, has challenged the contestants to create a vegetarian meal. Could a prime-time Post-Punk Kitchen show be far behind?
