Ralph Fiennes - Ralph Fiennes Urges Store Boss To Axe Foie Gras

Actor Ralph Fiennes has joined calls for a leading British department store to stop selling foie gras.

Bosses at Fortnum & Mason are under increasing pressure to pull the controversial pate from its shelves after a campaign by stars including Sir Roger Moore, Chrissie Hynde, Morrissey, and Pamela Anderson.

Now Schindler's List actor Fiennes has penned a personal letter to the store's managing director Ewan Venters urging him to intervene.

In the note, sent on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, he writes, "Animals and their welfare mean a lot to me and to the majority of the British public... As managing director, you have the power to end the company's involvement in this cruelty. I hope you will make the only acceptable decision by following the lead of other British department stores, such as Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, that have already banned foie gras from their shelves and menus."
