Pamela Anderson Brigitte Bardot

The Baywatch actress and committed animal rights activist spoke at the National Assembly in Paris to offer support to a proposed new law banning the force feeding of geese, the traditional method of making the controversial pate.

In French law, only pate from the livers of geese fed by this method can be known as 'foie gras', but French Green Party politician Laurence Abeille has put a bill before the country's parliament which would ban the practice.

Anderson, who was invited to speak on the matter by Abeille and bosses of Brigitte Bardot's animal welfare charity, made a plea for legislators to change French law.

Brigitte Bardot Morrissey

The veteran French actress, who is a longtime campaigner on animal welfare issues, recently penned an open letter to Australia's environment minister Greg Hunt criticising plans to rid the country of two million feral felines.

"This animal genocide is inhumane and ridiculous," she wrote. "In addition to being cruel, killing these cats is absolutely useless since the rest of them will keep breeding."

Morrissey also condemned the planned cull, calling the Australian government a "committee of sheep-farmers who have zero concerns about animal welfare or animal respect".

Brigitte Bardot

The veteran has published a letter online urging Hollande to grant the Ibex goats of Haute-Savoie a 'presidential pardon' after a local official sentenced them to death in a bid to stop the spread of bacterial infection brucellosis, which has been found in goat herds in the Alpine region.

Bardot and other animal rights campaigners argue that killing the goats will not be an effective method of disease control, and other measures, such as vaccination, should be at least considered.

The veteran star discovered a shop in Saint Tropez in France was selling a range of items, including watches, candles and towels, featuring her likeness without her permission, and she is planning to file a legal complaint against the owner for "exploiting her image".

Her husband Bernard d'Ormale tells local newspaper Nice Matin that he warned the owner: "You are selling products representing BB without authorisation. Brigitte is not happy. The only right she possesses is the right to her image. Next week, we'll be sending in the bailiffs."

However, the owner, a painter named Sasha, appears to be steeling himself to fight the battle, responding, "I've been doing paintings with Brigitte in them for 15 years, with my own style and in my own way. These are my own works. I wouldn't use official photos, for example."
