We Love Famke Janssen!

Published by PETA.


Famke Janssen has played a gamut of roles on the big and small screens, including her upcoming appearance in the highly-buzzed indie film The Wackness, which comes out on July 3. While this Netherlands-born beauty can play everything from a Bond girl to an X-men mutant to an indie star, we love her most for her true super-heroine role of promoting kindness to animals.

Her new role in The Wackness is already getting rave reviews, and we couldn’t be happier! The Rama’s Screen review says, “Every year there’s always one independent movie that premieres at Sundance Film Festival that goes on to be the year’s most groundbreaking film worthy to compete with other Oscar worthy contenders and for this year, The Wackness is definitely it.” Right on, Famke! Ya’ll need to get your behinds to your most eclectic lil’ indie theatre tomorrow to see this movie!

You probably remember that Famke showed that she deserved a halo and wings for her devotion to her dog Licorice. Both Licorice and Famke appeared in a PETA “Be an Angel for Animals” ad. In the ad, Famke reminded everyone to spay or neuter their companion animals and ensure that they receive proper veterinary care and get plenty of attention and exercise.

Thanks, Famke, for using your beauty in the most attractive way possible! We all wish you the best with The Wackness!

“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
