Alanis Morissette and Zachary Quinto Have a Face Off With the Future

Duo team with Kiehl’s for Recycle Across America

Alanis Morissette and Zachary Quinto teamed up, not to film a movie or sing a song together but to promote a facial cream.  Although it might sound strange, it’s for the environment.

The unlikely pair supported Kiehl’s Since 1851’s partnership with Recycle Across America at the April 17 launch party, where the two mingled with celebrity friends like Gilles Marini and Wilmer Valderrama at Kiehl’s headquarters in Santa Monica.

“We designed art for the jar of cream and this product is environmentally considerate,” Morissette said. “I love the idea of further clarifying the recycling process—it’s genius and more people will be accurately doing it.”

Morissette confessed she’s been using Kiehl’s facial cream since 1995, but has a few more ways to stay ecologically friendly. “My husband and I garden, we compost, we recycle. Oh, I can’t forget I still have my Prius! We’re doing this to keep the environment healthy for future generations.”

With “Star Trek Into Darkness” about to hit theaters, the future is very much on Quinto’s mind, but he fears something more than waste.

“If I look into the future, I get too terrified to talk about it,” he said. “I think technology is escaping our grasp and I’m afraid of it in some ways.  I don’t know if we’re going to be able to harness it before it outpaces us as a civilization.”

Guests at the party were served mini burgers, vodka waters and loud music, and were overheard asking the DJ, “Are they going to play any of Alanis’ songs?”
