Eva Mendes is the new face, I mean ass, for PETA's "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" campaign. I am not a PETA member but I applaud their efforts in educating people about the unnecessary cruelties that animals suffer in the hands of men. I don't wear fur, don't eat veal and have donated to animal protection groups in the past, though that does not make me perfect. I still eat meat & chicken - though only the cage-free type - and have in my wardrobe a few leather pieces that I still wear, nothing kinky though, just Italian leather. If I can pass on a good message through this vehicle - my humble Little-Pumpkins - I feel already feel somewhat accomplished.
Gorgeous Eva tells here how she got involved with The People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals:
"I wasn't familiar with PETA early in my career. I remember having my first premiere in New York City and being so naive that I didn't have a coat with me. My stylist sent me a fur wrap for the evening and I ignorantly wore it.
PETA then wrote me a beautiful letter commenting on my less-than-educated choice. I was so impressed that I vowed to them and myself to never wear real fur on the red carpet or in my life again."
