What's in a name?

This was the question on everyone's mind as Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan, and Nigella Lawson gathered for Friday night's episode of The Graham Norton Show!

Basically, we learn that Meryl HATES her own name and that Nicole inherited the Hawaiian name Hokulani from a baby elephant who was living at the Honolulu Zoo when she was born!

Pretty cute, right?

A Second American Doctor Is In Hot Water Over Killing A Zimbabwean Lion!

no title

When it rains, it pours, unfortunately!

After Cecil the lion's death swept across the Internet last week, and his brother Jericho's near-death was front and center this past weekend, now we are getting word that yet another American doctor — this time, a gynecologist from Pennsylvania — has killed a lion in Zimbabwe without a permit.

[ Video: Jimmy Kimmel Gets Choked Up Talking About Cecil The Lion! ]

Back in April, doctor Jan Casmir Seski of Pennsylvania traveled to Zimbabwe, where he took part in a hunt headed by a safari organizer named Headman Sibanda. Sibanda was one of the men arrested in a crackdown following Cecil's death at the hands of Dr. Walter Palmer, and his involvement with Seski is just now coming to light.

Caroline Washaya-Moyo, the head of Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority, said in a statement referencing Seski's hunt a few months ago:

PETA Still Trying To Change Dumbo's Ending! Now They're Asking Recently Announced Director Tim Burton!

We feel like PETA is like a little kid trying to figure out which parent to ask for more ice cream. Who is more likely to satiate their sweet tooth… but for a pretty decent reason.

When PETA heard that Disney was remaking Dumbo, they asked that the studio change the film's ending.

The original Dumbo ends with the eponymous elephant becoming a hit circus act and everything ends happily!

Though, now we all know the circus isn't the best place for elephants. Heck, even Ringling Bros. has promised to get rid of their elephant acts by 2018!!

So, now that the Dumbo remake has director Tim Burton on board, PETA is asking him what they already asked Disney. PETA's Senior VP Lisa Lange wrote a letter to the director, that said, in part:

Tim Burton To Direct Disney's Live-Action Dumbo Remake!

no title

We think Disney should do a live-action remake of every single film they've ever done ever.

Except for maybe the direct-to-video sequel Tarzan II. And maybe a whole lot of other direct-to-video sequels.

One live-action remake we're innerested to see is the remake of Dumbo!

It already sounds like a weird idea, but guess who they've just tapped to direct… Tim Burton!

So now, the live-action Dumbo remake, which will feature a mixture of

Ringling Bros. Circus Elephants Will FINALLY Be Phased Out Of The Act — But It'll Take Three Years!

no title

This is great news!

We just wish it was happening a bit sooner!

The twin touring circus companies — Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus — have made a MAJOR announcement on Thursday about the future of their circuses and one of the main pieces of information that they let loose concerned the elephants in the show.

And apparently the company will be phasing out the magnificent creatures from BOTH shows!

Feld Entertainment announced that

Olivia Munn Tries To Save Abused Elephant, Writes To USDA On PETA's Behalf!

no title

Olivia Munn isn't just beautiful, smart and famous… she's also compassionate — her best quality if you ask us!

Last week, she wrote a plea for help on behalf of a poor elephant named Nosey.

Nosey the circus elephant suffers from debilitating arthritis and Olivia took it upon herself to write a letter on PETA's behalf to Tom Vilsack, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. It read:

PETA Wants Disney To Change The Ending To Their Live-Action Dumbo Remake!

dumbo elephant crying sad ending

When it comes to animals, no matter how good things get, they're rarely good enough.

And that's why PETA has felt the need to step in and remind us of the fact that animals often get the short end of the stick, even under the best circumstances.

Just like with Disney's live-action remake of Dumbo!

Everyone can get excited over the fact that Disney isn't using real animals in the movie. That's an amazing, progressive step forward for the film industry.

But that doesn't change the fact that the Dumbo story ends with him becoming a star attraction at the circus.

While it's a happy ending, in real life, an elephant ending up at a circus is never happy.

A PETA spokesperson said:
