Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde land PETA prizes

Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde have been awarded leading animal rights honours for helping to highlight cruelty-free cosmetics.

The two stars are the recipients of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' Kind Choices Awards thanks to their new deals with cosmetics firm Revlon.

A spokesman for the animal rights group tells WENN, "When Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde chose to partner with Revlon, they were signing on to represent one of the country's first mainstream cruelty-free cosmetics companies. In 1990, more than 10 years before either Stone or Wilde landed her first acting role, Revlon agreed to PETA's request to permanently ban all product testing on animals.

"For choosing to promote only cruelty-free cosmetics, Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde have both earned a Kind Choices Award from PETA. They will each receive a framed certificate."

And PETA Vice President of Laboratory Investigations Kathy Guillermo adds, "Emma, Olivia, and Revlon have our thanks for encouraging millions of fashion-forward young women to choose make-up that's luxurious, not lethal. Cruelty-free companies such as Revlon make it easy for all of us to get a glamorous look without harming a hair on a bunny's head."
