hearing that Noel
Gallagher expressed excitement
about teaching his sons to "throw stuff at cows," Joan Jett called out the former Oasis frontman, stating:

throwing their support at animals, including
Alec Baldwin, who unveiled his new circus exposé for PETA at a news conference
in New York City.
Kellan Lutz revealed his PETA
billboard in Los Angeles to his Twitter followers in a picture that's worthy of its
own bedroom wall space.

"animal-friendly" also describes the set that Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt shared while making Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. Ewan told Conan O'Brien

sidecar to his motorcycle for toting Sid along.

Diamondbacks infielder Geoff
Blum announced that he did a vegan cleanse that helped

Hallström's Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, starring Ewan McGregor
and Emily Blunt, might not sound like a film that would be fishing for praise
from PETA, but the filming of the drama went swimmingly, thanks to fake fish.
isn't the first time that fake fish have made a splash on the big screen. A River Runs Through It, directed by Robert
Redford, and Wolfgang Petersen's The Perfect Storm both got two fins up
for not using real fish.

films, such as Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Big Miracle, because people who care about animals refuse to tolerate cruelty in the

reeling in the animal accolades too. Both Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor love their companion

The Rock and Roll of Fame's Class of 2012
has been announced, and animal-friendly stars will be
boogieing in. The Red Hot Chili Peppers earned a spot, but we're wondering if
this honor could top the Sexiest Vegetarian of 2008 title that Anthony Kiedis snagged. We'll call it
a wash. Guns N' Roses was gunning for a spot and rose to the occasion too. We
hope the awards ceremony will be fur-free, since Duff McKagan
will be in attendance.

really rocks: "I am delighted beyond words to be a PETA postage stamp. The
rise and rise of PETA is the rise of common sense in modern society. Join the
aims of PETA and join a better world."
Other celebs are rocking the Twitterverse with their
awesome animal-friendly tweets:
We love what Eliza Dushku

the documentary that is
changing the way Americans eat.
Maybe Emily Blunt
watched it? She was spotted at the California vegan restaurant Café Gratitude.
We've been watching
adorable Fivel Stewart
sporting our "Adopt,

Guess respect for animals runs in the family.

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.
