Huston Calls For An Ape-free Tarzan

Ape lover ANJELICA HUSTON has penned a letter to THE MUMMY director STEPHEN SOMMERS in a bid to keep real monkeys out of his new TARZAN movie. The Oscar winner has asked Sommers to use computer-generated animals instead of the real thing.
She insists ape actors are emotionally and physically abused during their film and TV careers, and spend the rest of their lives in zoos.
Huston writes, "Critics lauded King Kong in particular for the emotional depth that the giant ape displayed - without any real apes suffering in the process.
"Can I please hear that you similarly plan to use only creative alternatives to great apes in Tarzan?
