PETA has given an award to Hollywood star Bradley Cooper. The award was given because Cooper used his own down in a movie and didn’t hire a company to provide one.
According to Page Six:
Bradley Cooper’s dog scored his owner a prize.
PETA has named the actor, 43, the first-ever recipient of its Compassion in Film Award after he cast his pup Charlie in “A Star is Born,” they announced in a press release Thursday.
The organization praised the actor for using his own pet, “rather than using a dog supplied by one of Hollywood’s notorious animal exhibitors.”
“Bradley Cooper’s happy, adorable, and much-loved dog steals the spotlight — and viewers’ hearts — in this film because it’s clear that he loved being with his real-life ‘dad,’” PETA senior VP Lisa Lange said. “PETA has witnessed so much abuse and neglect of dogs, both on and off set, that we’re hoping Cooper’s kind decision sets a precedent for all of Hollywood to follow.”
PETA went on to talk about instances of animal abuse on stage. It is nice to see them take a break from protesting butcher shops for once.
