Rising Hollywood star Isabel Lucas has pulled out of an upcoming animal rights documentary citing irreconcilable difference with co-star Elissa Sursara. Titled Rights Revoked, the film explores the links between animals and fashion, cosmetics, food and entertainment.

Back in July of last year, we were psyched to see these two collaborating on bringing such a film to the masses, but now it appears that Lucas couldn’t handle sharing the camera with her former housemate and best friend. From the article,

“The 24-year-old booming actress cites brewing on-set tensions and personal discomfort for her decision, while Sursara remains on board for the project, something fans of Lucas’ congratulate her for. Said one comment on a News.com.au subsite, ‘I commend Elissa for sticking to her passion for animals and not backing out like a baby.'”

Completely agree. For someone like Lucas — who regularly fights for the rights of whales and other animals — to pull out of an important documentary just because she’s not into her co-star sounds like a classic prima donna in training. For her part, Lucas said she was concerned about the welfare of the documentary first, saying the tension might  affect their charitable work, “Particularly if we are filming things that may trigger anger and other messy emotions.”

Dear Lucas: Get over it.

Rumor has it Animal Planet might be interested in airing the doc once completed sometime in 2010.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
