Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman deserves to be put on a postage stamp, right? The folks at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals obviously think so.
PETA, which is well known for recruiting celebs for its cause, recently chose a new vehicle to spread its message – a limited-edition release of U.S. postage stamps sponsored by the organization. Its new campaign features 20 famous vegetarians throughout history, including Leonardo da Vinci, Leo Tolstoy, ex-Beatle Paul McCartney, actor Woody Harrelson, TV game show host Bob Barker, the buoyant Pamela Anderson, Indian leader Mohandas K. Gandhi, hip-hop magnate Russell Simmons, rockers Chrissie Hynde, Bryan Adams and Morrisey, and others. The entire set costs $19.99.
Among the stamps is one of the nubile Nat, who’s a well-known animal rights activist and vegan. “Eating for me is how you proclaim your beliefs three times a day,” Portman says.
