While we know her intentions were good, this may not be the right way for Alicia Silverstone to ask for tofu.

The actress has sent a letter to Russian president Vladimir Putin, asking that Pussy Riot's Maria Alekhina, a vegan, has access to a vegan diet.

The letter wants Putin to "assure" her about Alekhina's diet, and states the following:

I'm sure you can agree that everyone has the right to show compassion and refrain from hurting animals by being vegan.

Madonna supports the cause, Alicia supports their diet…

Same thing, right?

Celebs Against McDonalds

Back in November, an undercover video showed extreme mistreatment of egg-laying hens at Sparboe Farms, who supplies McDonalds.

McDonalds quickly dropped the company but many celebs feel that that's not enough.

A letter was penned to Jim Skiner, the CEO of McDonalds.

Several celebs, including Ryan Gosling, Zooey Deschanel and Alicia Silverstone signed the letter which encourages McDonalds to buy from a facilities who uses 100% cage-free hens.

An excerpt from the letter reads:

"While McDonald's has already established a 100% cage-free purchasing policy in Europe, your U.S. restaurants continue to support egg factory farms that confine hens for most of their lives in cages so small they can’t even spread their wings.nearly anything that comes naturally to them. Common sense tells us that animals with legs and wings should be given the basic freedom to move.

Sadly, there is not a single federal law to protect hens from cruelty from the time they hatch to the time they are killed. While McDonald's brags about the "billions and billions served," millions of hens exploited for your restaurants are being grossly underserved. In fact, these animals are being abused in ways that would land your egg suppliers in jail, if dogs or cats were the victims."

You can check out the whole letter HERE.

Lets hope McDonalds gets the hint and switches to a completely cruelty-free supplier.

Alicia Silverstone Says Animal Testing Is Out Of Date

| Filed under: Alicia SilverstoneAnimal RightsAnimal Cruelty

Alicia Silverstone animal testing

Listen to Cher, she always knows what's in.

The Clueless actress and super star activist Alicia Silverstone is battling for animal rights once again! Her current target — the cosmetic industry.

Alicia has written a letter to the European Commission asking them to "Uphold the European Union's 2013 ban on cosmetics tested on animals."

According to Alicia:

"This ban was put in place to advance and modernize cosmetic testing and keeping it in place is crucial. We need modern cosmetics and chemical test methods that can assess how products will affect the human body. Testing these products on animals is inherently cruel–and it's not a good predictor of how it will affect humans."

She says pushing the deadline further would only delay plans to develop nonanimal tests that can better predict how cosmetics affect humans.

We agree, AND are totes proud of Alicia for all her hard work and passion!
