snipshot_146miak045.jpgPamela 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 – wouldn’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: “My pet is a turtle in the movie – animatronics of course. No real turtles are being used. No animals at all. It’s an animal friendly set. That battle was won. Thank you.”

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…)
