Sandra Bullock Pulls Out Of Gulf Preservation PSA After Organization Linked To Oil Companies!

If this is true, then we stand behind her decision 100%! That would be so fucked up!

Sandra Bullock is reportedly demanding to be removed from a PSA for Gulf restoration she appears in because the organization behind it may actually be taking money from oil companies!

Awful!

The PSA (above), called Be The One, was put together by Women of the Storm's Restore the Gulf campaign, which is sponsored by the American Wetland Foundation. That group has allegedly taken money from oil and gas companies - INCLUDING BP!

Her publicist, Cheryl Maisel, claims:

"Ms. Bullock was originally contacted through her attorney to be a part of the PSA in order to promote awareness of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. At no time was she made aware that any organization, oil company or otherwise had influence over Women of the Storm or its message. We have immediately asked for [Bullock's] participation in the PSA be removed until the facts be determined."

The organization, however, denies these claims, and have asked to meet with Bullock to explain the matter.

They've also reached out to others featured in the PSA, including Lenny Kravitz, Blake Lively, and Dave Matthews, so no one else will attempt to pull out!

Founder Anne Milling explains:

"I was shocked and of course very disappointed. However, I do believe that once Ms. Bullock hears and listens to the facts and understands that Women of the Storm has had no connection or taken money from oil companies, I think that will allay her fears and I believe she will rejoin our video because she really believes in coastal restoration. She is committed to that."

We hope that she's telling the truth, and this matter can be resolved!

It would be such a shame to have what appears to be a good cause be tainted like this!

Thoughts??

Ian Somerhalder: Gorgeous & Green!

Filed under: Ian Somerhalder

There really isn't anything seksier than a chiseled chin combined with a competent and caring brain!

That's why we find Ian Somerhalder to be undeniably gorgeous, since he's hotter than lava and actually cares about the world around him.

Ian has been an active celebrity voice for the people and animals affected by the Gulf oil spill and in a recent interview, he explained what he's doing on his end to help.

While offering his time and mind to those trying to find ways to fix the situation in the gulf, he is also looking for ways closer to home to reduce the need for oil. He recently joined a campaign called Go Green Mobile Power, a company that creates portable solar/wind/biodiesel generators for use on film sets and in the event industry to replace the "off-grid dirty energy that's traditionally used on location."

Ian explains:

"It takes a lot of power to run a movie set. We go through a lot of fuel.It's harmful, and we can start changing that a little bit. We can get rid of these noisy, stinky, disgusting gas generators. There's going to be a lot of thought that goes into this revolution that's going to happen. We're dealing with California Transportation Department, we're dealing with the Department of Defense, we're dealing with disaster relief — but we're also dealing with the entertainment industry. We'll be taking major productions green, like big concerts and music festivals. Greening the 'Vampire Diaries' set is a priority for me, which we're going to be doing this year."

Amazing! We're so proud of all he is doing! Many, many kudos to him for all his efforts to keep our world clean!

Hey, you know what else might help? If you delivered this message to others without a shirt on.

Just a thought.

Brad Pitt To Make Movie About Gulf Oil Spill

Filed under: Brad PittFilm Flickers

Looks like the seksi Brad Pitt may be following in the footsteps of his goodwill ambassador for a babymomma and spending some time down in the bayou.

It’s rumored that he is interested in making a dramatic film about the BP Gulf Coast oil spill affecting Louisiana and surrounding states.

We wonder if this will make it to the big screen??

Either way, good for U!

Glad you are trying to make people aware of the mess going on down there.

At least someone is doing something about this!

Last night, Larry King held a telethon on CNN to raise funds for three amazing charities who are providing aid in the Gulf. The spill has left a lot of people and wildlife stranded and the money that was raised last night will surely be put to good use.

Helping Larry out was a slew of celebs including Ryan Seacrest, Nicole Richie, Kathy Griffin, Ian Somerhalder, Chelsea Handler, Sam Trammell and Ke$ha! Look, she washed her face…sort of!

In total, the telethon raised over $1.3 million for the oil spill relief! Fantastic!

If you didn't donate last night, make sure to look into ways to help the relief effort in anyway you can. This spill is devastating and anything you can give or do will be much appreciated.

Bravo to the celebs who donated their time and talent to such an important cause!
