Baldwin calls on young stars to defend animal rights

Alec Baldwin wants today’s young stars to step up for Peta.

The '30 Rock' actor, who flew into Los Angeles to host the animal rights group’s 30th Anniversary gala, said he was keen to see younger role models lead by example and join campaigns such as 'I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur'.

“Whether they get naked or not, it’s the young who are now role models; Emma Watson, Blake Lively, these are the ones that have all the influence,” he insisted.

“I’d love to see these glamorous younger women of today get involved.”
