prn-022202Anjelica Huston wants you to know that when it comes to standing up for the Ape’s, she ain’t just monkeying around! 

The award-winning actress recently penned a letter to The Mummy director Stephen Sommers in an effort to keep real monkeys out of his new Tarzan movie.

Huston writes, “Critics lauded King Kong in particular for the emotional depth that the giant ape displayed – without any real apes suffering in the process. Can I please hear that you similarly plan to use only creative alternatives to great apes in Tarzan?”

Anjelica is most definitely on to something! And if you don’t believe us, just ask our good friends over at Save the Chimps — an insanely wonderful organization that provides a permanent sanctuary for the lifelong care of chimpanzees rescued from research laboratories, entertainment and the pet trade. We think they rock! 

These days it’s sooooo easy to make computer generated animals look real , so there’s absolutely no reason to put animals through such needless pain and suffering. Please join Anjelica Huston and your lovely Ecorazzi team and leave a comment below asking Stephen Sommers to use computer generated apes in Tarzan. It just makes sense!

    It’s important for these animals who belong in the wild to stay in the wild and off screen. I applaud and support Anjelica in her efforts.
