[Ed Note: You can also check out the letter Thandie wrote several actors and actresses urging them to dump their SUVs in favor of smaller vehicles.

The note was sent to Jamie Oliver, Chris Martin, Michael Jackson, Mel Gibson, Charlize Theron, Madonna, David Beckham, Wayne Rooney and her Mission Impossible II co-star Tom Cruise.]
