Check out scenes from "A Star Is Born." Bradley Cooper was recognized by PETA for casting his puppy in his new film.
PETA awarded the first-time director its Compassion in Film Award for casting Charlie rather than using a dog from one of Hollywood’s animal exhibitors.
“Bradley Cooper’s happy, adorable, and much loved dog steals the spotlight— and viewers’ hearts — in this film because it’s clear that he loved being with his real-life ‘dad,’” PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said in an announcement.
“PETA has witnessed so much abuse and neglect of dogs, both on and off set, that we’re hoping Cooper’s kind decision sets a precedent for all Hollywood to follow,” she added.
