Natalie Imbruglia has blasted people who wear fur. The ‘Torn’ hitmaker ‘ who narrates a new anti-fur video released by animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) ‘ has urged fashion lovers to turn their backs on animal skins, insisting it is a brutal and inhumane trade. She said: ‘There is no kind way to rip the skin off animals’ backs. Anyone who wears any fur shares the blame for the torture and gruesome deaths of millions of animals each year. “Saving animals is as simple as choosing synthetic alternatives instead of real fur.’ Natalie is not the first star to back PETA’s anti-fur campaign, with supporters including Simon Cowell, Eva Mendes, Kate Winslet and Charlize Theron. However, many other famous faces have risked the wrath of the organisation by continuing to don fur garments. Naming Catherine Zeta-Jones as their Worst Dressed star last year, PETA released a statement saying: ‘With her cow-skin pants, ugly fox coat and icky alligator bag, Catherine Zeta-Jones looks like she’s working her way through Noah’s ark with a knife. “Maybe she’s trying to get into character for an upcoming role as a serial killer – or a taxidermist.” PETA have also had harsh words for singer-and-actress Jessica Simpson – whose transition into country music flopped last year. The group said of her outfits: “All resemble her career – dead.”
Charlize Theron and Robert Downey Jr. are a couple more stars you can expect to see at the Academy Awards this Sunday.

Theron scored a Best Actress prize in 2003 for her turn as a killer in Monster, and she’s a constant fixture on the red carpet (we can’t wait to see her gown!) As for Downey, he was nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category last year for Tropic Thunder but lost out to the late Heath Ledger. And even though he didn’t score a nod this time around for Sherlock Holmes, he did win a Golden Globe award for that performance. In addition to these two, Oscar winners Barbra Streisand and Kathy Bates will be joining the bunch. People.com reports that Queen Latifah, Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta are on the roster as well. Sounds like a lively bunch! Teen favorites like Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are also attending this year, in addition to comedians Steve Carell and Tina Fey, so we can definitely expect some laughs.

The dancer-turned-actress Jennifer Morrison made her film debut in the movie “Intersection.” She has also starred in “Urban legends Final Cut” and “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” but she currently has a role on the Fox drama “House.” The actress was born August 19, 1979, in Chicago and has dated co-star Jesses Spencer. An actress who first earned her critical laurels (and reeled in a substantial television fanbase) as Dr. Alison Cameron on the blockbuster medical drama House (2004), Jennifer Morrison grew up well outside the realm of Hollywood, in a middle-class family in the Chicago suburb of Arlington Heights, Illinois. As a preteen and teenager, Morrison entered showbusiness via modeling, appearing in innumerable print campaigns and gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated for Kids at one point; after wrapping up high school, she attended Loyola University as a theater major (reportedly graduating in only three years) and subsequently trained with the legendary Steppenwolf theatrical ensemble, onetime home to such stars as John Malkovich, Gary Sinise, and Glenne Headly. From there, Hollywood fame was merely a short leap away; by the time of her Loyola graduation, Morrison had already officially debuted onscreen, with a small part as the daughter of Richard Gere and Sharon Stone in the psychological drama Intersection (1994) and a more significant role as a missing girl who psychically haunts Kevin Bacon in the supernatural thriller Stir of Echoes (1999). Morrison signed for her first lead with a role that many felt unworthy of her talents and intelligence: that of Amy Mayfield, a young film student who gets in way over her head amid a thesis project on urban legends, in John Ottman’s slasher outing Urban Legends: The Final Cut (2000). Subsequent projects included Michael Davis’s teen-oriented romantic comedy 100 Women (2002), Casey La Scala’s teen comedy Grind (2003), and — as something of a nadir — the critically despised holiday gross-out fest Surviving Christmas (2004), in which she played Ben Affleck’s snotty girlfriend. As indicated, House represented Morrison’s breakthrough and the role that finally brought her public attention. The long-running Fox drama told of Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie), a diagnostician with an astounding degree of medical knowledge and an absolute dearth of social skills. As Dr. Cameron (an immunologist with a not-so-secret crush on the physician), Morrison brought a much-needed dose of warmth and vulnerability to the series. Morrison subsequently made headlines in 2007, when she was tapped to appear as Winona Kirk, James T. Kirk’s mother, in J.J. Abrams’s much-anticipated 11th installment of the Star Trek series.
