Pamela Anderson Stands Up For Turtles During Film Production
Pamela Anderson has been getting a lot more press time lately; especially in light of her amusing appearance in the blockbuster Borat movie that opened last weekend. She made news again this week by refusing to allow a real turtle on set during filming of her movie, Blonde & Blonder. (Academy, take notice!) From the article,
“In the comic movie, Pammy plays a ditzy bombshell who has a pampered pet turtle.
However, the actress – who is a prominent member of animal rights group PETA – wouldnâ€™t commit to the role until she had assurances no real turtles would be used or harmed in the making of the film.
She said: â€œMy pet is a turtle in the movie – animatronics of course. No real turtles are being used. No animals at all. Itâ€™s an animal friendly set. That battle was won. Thank you.â€
Pamela, who is an active member of PETA, also recently appeared earlier this year scantily clad for an anti-fur campaign for Stella McCartney. Who says blondes can’t make a difference? (Well, actually, I don’t anyone has ever said that, but I could tell you a few funny jokes…)
