Our friends at PETA
have revealed a cheeky new campaign with Eva Mendes, who joins other
celebrities in opposing fur
SOMEHOW, whenever PETA
(People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) releases a Id
rather go naked than wear fur campaign, it seems to look fresh.
Maybe its because the celebrity is someone in the public consciousness
now, rather than a star from the past. And the latest stargoing
further and showing her bottomis Eva Mendes, of Ghost Rider
Mendes says her interest in opposing the fur
trade and cruelty to animals was sparked by her dog, which she recently
got, according to the
PETA blog. Earlier in her career,
she had worn a fur wrap to a première in New York, and admits
that her choice of dress was pointed out by the organization.
She feels that pop culture has led to a rise
in furs popularity and wishes to take a stand against it.
Some people still see wearing fur as glamorous and a sign
of prosperity. Personally I think wearing a baby chinchilla says,
Im ignorant, versus saying, Im a badass.
I dont think you can force people
to change their attitudes, but you can help to educate them and
to lead by example.
There are way too many amazing faux
fur options out there for people to still be wearing real fur. I
want people to know that there are options; that killing a poor
animal and wearing it isnt cool.
Mendess campaign breaks for winter 20078.
She joins celebrities such as Joanna Krupa, Alicia Silverstone and
Pamela Anderson l in appearing naked for PETA
