Critch stepped in during a press conference, in which Anderson and "The Simpsons" producer Sam Simon were speaking, with a hand-written cheque for $1 million in his hand, telling her she could have it if she gave up acting.
"We've all seen the cruel videos, 'Barb Wire,' 'Bay Watch Nights,' 'Barbarella,'" he said.
"'Stripperella,'" Anderson corrected.
"'Stripperella, sorry, thank-you. They make me embarrassed to be a Canadian," Critch said. Anderson has famously given the same quote about the seal hunt.

Anderson insisted the cheque, from Simon's foundation, was simply a catalyst for a government bailout. Dan Mathews, PETA's senior vice-president, elaborated.
