Ellen DeGeneres and Tim Gunn have just been honored by PETA as 2009’s Woman and Man of the Year!

PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk released the following statement:

    “Tim Gunn and Ellen DeGeneres show us that one person really can make a difference in the world by rejecting cruel deeds in favor of compassionate acts. Their message that animals must be treated kindly and respectfully has reached scores of people, and many of them have changed their buying habits, all because Gunn and DeGeneres spoke up for the voiceless.”

Ellen tweeted her delight, writing, “I’m honored PETA named me ‘Person of The Year’. I thank them for protecting animals every single day. Amazing." PETA picked her because of her vegan lifestyle, and the fact that she's brought vegan experts like Jonathan Safran Foer and Dr. Neal Barnard on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The animal rights organization praised Gunn narrating their “Fashion Victims” video along with his job creative director at Liz Claiborne, which is a fur-free company.

Nice work guys!

Love these two! And we bet the animals do too...
