The actor had recently sent a letter to the CEO of food chain KFC's parent company, Yum! Brands, urging the head honcho to adopt PETA's recommendations to stop animal abuse.

The actor had also lent his voice to a PETA video, which was based on Paul McCartney's statement that if slaughterhouses were made up of glass walls, no one would eat non-vegetarian food.
