Jason Mraz

Jason Mraz just went vegan and wrote about it on his blog:

George Clooney

Just when you thought George Clooney couldn’t get any sexier, check out what he told the media at the Golden Globes: “I’ve always had dogs. I’ve almost always had them out of the pound. Seems like a good place. They have a lot of them. It brings me a lot of joy to do it and they seem like the happiest dogs in the game. I only have one, but he eats for, like, four.”

Academy Award–nominee and vegan beauty Jessica Chastain was spotted walking her pooch, who doesn’t seem to be slowed down a bit by having only three legs. We wouldn’t be surprised if Jessica were an advocate of rescuing!

Gracing the February cover of Self magazine, Kristen Bell asked readers to tweet questions for her to answer in the mag.

I love animals, and I stand by my values.”
