Olivia Munn…Naked?: The “Attack of the Show” Star joins PETA in fight against elephant cruelty

April 27, 2010

Using her sex appeal this time for a moral/ethical cause, Olivia Munn poses nude in a new PETA ad against using elephants in circuses (said via JustJared, April 27).

The G4 and “Iron Man 2” star sits naked beside a bold statement that reads “As Nature Intended. Let Elephants Be Free. Boycott The Circus.” The backdrop is a safari of 2 elephants roaming without bother.

In reference to her work with PETA, Munn states: When you look at something like the circus…when you go right behind that door and [the animals are] in these crates all day long and then they’re getting shocked and beat just so they can get up and dance around on a ball. It was just so sickening.

JustJared states that the ad sits at Wilshire Blvd. and Highland Ave., a cross-intersection between Downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica—a site exemplified for attracting conversation.

March 18, 2010

With a soft heart for underprivileged children, mom Jessica Alba visits Johannesburg to play a game of soccer with local kids (said via People.com, March 18).

Alba’s mission is part of the 1GOAL: Education for All campaign, who’s goal is to launch education for children worldwide via soccer (called “football” in most nations), primarily with the promotion and sponsorship of the 2010 FIFA World Cup (which will be hosted in South Africa).

1GOAL is also known as the “football strand of the Class of 2015” or as some would say, a larger initiative to inspire education. The Class of 2015, similar to 1GOAL project, is a global initiative, maintained by national governments, charities, celebrities, religious leaders, teachers, and the world football federation (Fédération Internationale de Football Association or FIFA), itself, aiming to enable every child with an education by the year 2015.
