Peter Dinklage Calls for End to Cosmetic Animal Testing in US

“Game of Thrones” actor Peter Dinklage is uniting with animal rights organization Cruelty Free International (CFI) and calling for an end to cosmetic animal testing in the United States.

“I am so pleased to support Cruelty Free International and be part of the global campaign to end cosmetics tests on animals,” Dinklage said. “It is unacceptable that animals continue to suffer around the world, including the United States of America, for the sake of beauty. I appeal to the USA to follow the European Union’s lead and end animal testing for cosmetics.”

Last month, Europe officially banned hair and beauty products that had been tested on animals in vivisection labs.

“Anyone who wishes to sell new cosmetic products and ingredients in the EU must not test them on animals anywhere in the world. The ban affects all cosmetics including toiletries and beauty products from soap to toothpaste,” the European Union declared.

Now, CFI, Dinklage and other celebs like Ricky Gervais and Joss Stone think it’s our nation’s turn.

For some time now, Dinklage has been speaking out on behalf of animals including partnerships with PETA and becoming a national spokesman for Farm Sanctuary’s Walk for Farm Animals campaign. He’s also been a vegetarian since the age of 16.

Fingers crossed Dinklage’s outcry can get the U.S. to officially pass the ban.

    Good for Peter! Love this guy! Still, it’d be nice if he could somehow get all the the real fur used in Game of Thrones replaced with synthetic fur…
