PETA wants less Moore

PETA has a message for “Sicko” director Michael Moore: You’re fat-o.

According to MSNBC.com, members of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are blasting the filmmaker as a hypocrite for criticizing the U.S. health care system in his new documentary, “Sicko” — which opens tomorrow — because they say he’s in poor health himself.

“There’s an elephant in the room, and it is you,” PETA President Ingrid Newkirk wrote in a letter to Mr. Moore.


Miss Newkirk urged the rotund Mr. Moore to become a vegetarian, which many nutritionists say is a good way to lose weight, and also suggested he visit PETA’s Web site GoVeg.com for meatless recipes.

Writes Miss Newkirk: “As they say at Nike: ‘Just do it.’ ”

No-brainer

The new face of Nintendo is … Nicole Kidman?

Nintendo has announced that the Oscar winner plans to appear in its new “pan-European campaign” for the company’s new 60-day Brain Training series, the New York Post reports.

“I love the concept that Nintendo is reaching out to new audiences with their self-improvement products,” said Miss Kidman, 40.

“I’ve quickly found that training my brain is a great way to keep my mind feeling young,” the former Mrs. Tom Cruise added.

Of course, the airbrushed photographs in the ads keep her face looking young, as well, the New York Post notes.
