Hamster Day

Afternoon

10/5/2008 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Al Pacino may be a vicious killer on screen, but in real life he fiercely protects the rodents, much to the dismay of Beverly D'Angelo.


Our spies served up a classic for us yesterday. Location: PETCO, West Hollywood. Event: Hamster Race. Participants: Five hamsters, as well as the Pacino/D'Angelo twins.

A crowd watched breathlessly as the hamsters were each placed on a plastic track. The critters were somewhat disoriented as the crowd cheered them on. This began to alarm Pacino, who worried out loud the hamsters "are gonna have a heart attack." D'Angelo fired back, "Relax, they're just hamsters!" Now we know why it didn't work out -- they even bicker during hamster races.

In the end, the twins finished second and third. There were whispers that the winner could have been a ringer, because the little girl brought her rodent to PETCO in what looked like a professional pink and green striped carrying case.

Catch Pacino in his latest release, "Scent of a Hamster."

I know Beverly carried the twins, but who is the biological egg donor?

She didn't have any egg donors. She had invitro with her own eggs.

I haven't been able to stand Pacino for awhile now, but his worry about the hamsters is really telling about how compassionate he is. Bev shouldn't have let him get away!

See...this is why people like Al Pacino, at least HE was showing concern for the hamsters. Perhaps trying to be an example for his children.
