Pamela Anderson, Joaquin Phoenix, Anjelica Huston and other animal loving Hollywood stars arrived to PETA's 35th anniversary celebration on Wednesday. The event honored advocates and activists with humanitarian awards for championing animal rights and increasing awareness to the general public. SOUNDBITE, Pamela Anderson, saying (English): "Animals are really important and they are just as important as humans and this world isn't made for just humans, it is not a civilized society because humans came into the picture. Animals are trying to speak with us, I feel like we spend so much time trying to find aliens or whatever it is and we have these beautiful creatures and we have these oceans that we still know nothing about." Musician Moby has been vegan for 28 years and sees progress in making the lifestyle more acceptable. SOUNDBITE, Moby, saying (English): "28 years ago, no one even know how to pronounce vegan, some people called it VE-jan or ve-GAN, that's how marginal it was back then and now Bill Clinton is a vegan, Al Gore is a vegan, Beyonce is a vegan, Ellen deGeneres is a vegan, it is so, I wouldn't say mainstream but there is so much more awareness about veganism, animal rights issues." PETA is an internationally recognized animal rights organization and according to its website has over 3 million members and supporters worldwide.
