The following actors/actresses support Humane Society International’s Be Cruelty-Free campaign, a global effort to end animal testing for cosmetics and personal care products. Join them at hsi.org/becrueltyfree.

  • Ricky Gervais

    "It’s shocking to think that behind the glamorous advertising and glossy packaging, there can lurk the ugly truth of chemicals forced down an animal’s throat." Read the press release.
  • Owain Yeoman

    "It's the saddest thing to know that rabbits can't cry, which is one of the reasons these gentle creatures are used in painful eye tests for cosmetics. When I think of their unnecessary suffering I could certainly shed a tear, so I'm backing the Be Cruelty-Free campaign to see an end to animal testing in North America and globally." Read the press release.
  • Pippa Black

    "Animal testing is an ugly business, and I have zero tolerance for the cruelty and exploitation that violates any animal subject to these horrendous practices. Make-up enhances our beauty on the outside. Making strong, educated and compassionate choices allows our inner beauty to shine through." Read the press release.
  • Virginia McKenna

    "Testing mascara, shampoo and other cosmetics on animals is completely unnecessary and totally cruel. Is that the choice we make over kindness and compassion? Shame on us if it is." Read the press release.
  • Judi Dench

    "Using animals to test is cruel and should be stopped. These days, there are other means of testing which do not involve animal suffering." Read the press release.
  • Zhu Zhu

    "It breaks my heart to know that here in China, gentle animals such as rabbits are still suffering such pain just to test cosmetics. That’s why I’m proud to become a Be Cruelty-Free China Ambassador, to help spread the message of cosmetics with compassion." Read the press release.
  • Sam Bunkall

    "I thought animal testing of cosmetics was a thing of the past, so I was shocked to learn that globally hundreds of thousands of rabbits, guinea pigs and other gentle creatures are still enduring painful and lethal testing for cosmetics. I want to be able to walk into any store and know that rabbits haven't been blinded to test the products that I choose. Testing on animals is unethical and unnecessary." Read the press release.
  • Emmanuelle Vaugier

    "We all use beauty products like shampoo or perfume every day, but how often do we think about the animals who have suffered needlessly to test those products? If we could see rabbits with swollen eyes and sore skin every time we apply our make-up, we wouldn't feel beautiful at all. But it doesn't have to be that way; we can stop animal testing for cosmetics." Read the press release.
  • Kristin Bauer van Straten

    "We should all take a stand against animal testing for cosmetics because these animals are dying for our vanity and they can't speak up for themselves. It's shocking to know that this needless cruelty is happening right now in Canada. It has to stop. It's time for Canada to #BeCrueltyFree." Read the press release.
  • Tricia Helfer

    "As a proud Canadian, it breaks my heart that my country still allows gentle creatures such as rabbits and guinea pigs to suffer to test new beauty products and ingredients for cosmetics. Let's ban cosmetics animal testing—it's time for Canada to #BeCrueltyFree."Read the press release.
  • Laura Vandervoort

    "I think in our hearts, all of us know instinctively that causing animals pain and even death simply to test a new vanity product like a lipstick or anti-wrinkle cream is just wrong. I'm proud to support the #BeCrueltyFree Canada campaign for a kinder world without cosmetics cruelty." Read the press release.
  • Aya

    "Rabbits are used in cosmetics animal testing. Rabbits don't have tear ducts therefore can't wash away the chemicals put in their eyes. No animal should have to suffer this kind of cruelty." Read the press release.
  • Junior

    "Taiwan must follow the international trend of banning cosmetics animal testing. I support the banning of cosmetics animal testing." Read the press release.
  • Lisa Wang

    "I support cruelty free cosmetics. By choosing to support cruelty free, you will be beautiful on the inside and out." Read the press release.
