Despite the 36-year-old actress’ best intentions to do her bit to clean up the environment, seems like her celeb friends are a no-go. Recently, the Crash and The Pursuit of Happyness star has been sending letters to her star pals, like Tom Cruise, Robin Williams, Madonna, and Ozzy Osbourne, urging them to forego their patented SUVs and go green.

“I didn’t get one letter back. I wasn’t judgmental. It was like, ‘In case you didn’t know here are some facts about the environment and some reasons why it turns out 4x4s aren’t that great to have in the city’,” she laments.

But the BAFTA-award winning actress is still placing her hopes on a recent convert, daytime talkshow host Oprah. “I suggested that she switches her whole fleet of cars. I really hope she does. It would do so much good.”
