Conservative groups recently put up a billboard at Hollywood and Highland thanking the likes of Michael Moore for helping to re-elect President Bush. Global Green USA’s “Rock the Earth” party on Thursday gave enviro-conscious celebs the chance to retaliate.
As they strolled down the green carpet just steps away from the Kodak Theatre, Orlando Bloom, his ex-girlfriend Kate Bosworth, Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayek and Tim Robbins signed a poster showing the Global Green logo that will be sent to Bush calling for him to support a “smart climate agenda.”
And some are making sure that they won’t be labeled hypocrites. Bloom, who will be attending his first Oscar kudofest on Sunday, says he won’t take a stretch limo to the awards.
“I am going to the Oscars this year in a [Toyota] Prius,” Bloom says. “Anything I can do to bring awareness to the environment and to the fact that we need to decrease the greenhouse-gas emissions, I will do. I love the environment. I grew up in the countryside. I want my kids one day to enjoy the same environment and their kids to enjoy the same environment.”
