Longtime PETA supporter Alicia Silverstone has taken off her clothes in a new ad campaign for the organization.
In a series of print and video spots, the very naked (though covered where it counts) actress poses, sprawled out in front of a pool.
In the print version, the words “I’m a Alicia Silverstone, and I’m a vegetarian,” appear above the nude actress. Silverstone says the same words in the video rendition of the ad, also noting that “there’s nothing in the world that’s changed me as much as this. I feel so much better and have so much more energy.”
The PETA-Silverstone campaign will air on Food Network, Lifetime and E! in Houston before expanding nationwide.
PETA chose Houston for the campaign because they noted in a statement, “it repeatedly ranks among the least healthy in the country.”

This one exudes a manly Menthol Rose aroma, not just your average sweaty-guy funkiness.

A collector in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, passed the freak of nature to Big Al's Aquarium Supercenter in East Norriton.

Morrisville police have charged a man with assault on a government official after an officer said the man coughed into his face during a traffic stop. Officer Chris Gill said in his report that Kent Kauffman looked into his eyes before "hacking" in his face three times, according to Morrisville spokeswoman Stacie Galloway. Kauffman said he did cough from the window of his minivan but did so toward Gill's waist. "He says I coughed in his face," Kauffman said. "But that would only work if he had a 4-foot-long face. "Kauffman said he developed a cough after his dog died last week. He said Gill put him in handcuffs and threw him into the side of the patrol car. Gill pulled Kauffman over Tuesday for not wearing a seat belt. He now faces a misdemeanor charge and, if convicted, could spend up to 60 days in jail.
