Sir Paul McCartney, Natalie Portman and Morrissey are among the famous faces who will adorn a set of U.S. postage stamps in the name of vegetarianism.
Executives at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have picked 20 people whom they deemed the most famous vegetarians of all time. These figures will appear on a series of U.S. stamps scheduled to be released this week. The series includes Chrissie Hynde, Joan Jett, Pamela Anderson, Bryan Adams, Woody Harrelson, Russell Simmons, Leona Lewis, Gandhi, Leonardo da Vinci and Leo Tolstoy.
Lisa Lange, vice president of PETA, says, "These are very influential people, and not everyone knows that these folks are vegetarian. It's just another way to be able to talk about what animals go through in slaughterhouses."
A PETA spokesman adds, "The whole point is to show how many cultural icons around the world have been shunning meat for centuries."
The stamps will be available via PETA, not the United States Postal Service.
