Video: Kate narrates for PETA against foie gras

Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet is narrating a new video for PETA to try and help stop the production of foie gras.

The Reader star, 34, narrates a new video calling for a ban on the sale of the delicacy and the clip has been sent to department stores across the world, including Fortnum and Mason in London and El Corte Ingles in Madrid.

The video also shows undercover footage of what the ducks and geese have to go through to make the “delicacy of despair” and it is hoped it will persuade bosses to take it off the shelves.

Winslet says: “To produce foie gras, ducks and geese are force-fed enormous amounts of grain and fat, which causes their livers to swell to many times the normal size.”

And also, watch the red carpet interview and Best Actor presentation videos:

Kate Winslet was a bulldozer for Oscar winner Jeff Bridges. The actress, a winner last year for The Reader, presented Bridges with his Crazy Heart trophy and pulled him backstage, waving aside stagehands and declaring Bridges needed the place “to say other stuff, to thank the people he didn’t thank out there.”

She was referring to the academy’s thank-you cam, an Internet-only camera that records winners’ voluminous lists of names of people who need to be mentioned but were left out onstage. It’s meant to encourage winners to give more heartfelt speeches rather than read a litany of managers, agents, lawyers, friends and family.

“And here,” Winslet said, thrusting the open envelope with his name into his hands, “don’t lose this!”

Clearly, her take-charge attitude came from being a veteran.
