Cruz And Brody Cause Fury With Peta
PENELOPE CRUZ and ADRIEN BRODY's new bullfighting film has incurred the wrath of animal rights activists, who are furious after hearing reports about potential on-set animal slaughter.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have instructed supporters to disrupt filming on the set of MANOLETE, unless movie-makers agree to use computer technology instead of harming real bulls.
A source tells MSNBC's The Scoop website, "If it's true, it's rather shocking, because Penelope is a big animal-rights activist who has spoken out against bullfighting."
Actor PIERCE BROSNAN was admired for using digital technology when filming similar scenes on his new film THE MATADOR.
A spokesman for PETA says, Bullfights are cowardly affairs that have no place in a modern world."
