10 Celebrities Who Have Stripped Off For Peta
Animal rights groups have grown immeasurably over the past few years. These organizations seek to end the cruel treatment of animals and often look to celebrities to help increase awareness. Whether it is because they really believe in the cause or just want to get some good publicity, many celebrities are willing to endorse the likes of PETA and fight to end the fur trade, animal testing and other forms of cruelty. Some have even taken the extreme measure of posing naked for posters in the “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign.
Reality television star Angela Simmons decided to take part in a PETA poster advocating vegetarianism . The message was trying to convince people to give up eating meat and instead decide to become a vegetarian. Simmons cited her religious beliefs as a deciding factor in taking part, saying that taking up the diet would help stop animals from suffering.
Although Jenna Jameson is no stranger to taking off her clothes, as she works in the pornography industry, she was still a major coup for PETA. She appeared in a poster at a fashion week in California wearing a dark black wig and sexy underwear.
Newsroom star Olivia Munn appeared in a giant poster for PETA in 2012 alongside a cute little bunny, using just her arms and legs to cover herself up. While the full poster couldn’t be used in many places as it was considered too raunchy, it still proved effective at drawing attention to the cause.
Taraji P. Henson
Having been inspired to take part in animal rights activism by the HBO documentary I am an Animal, Taraji P. Henson agreed to collaborate with PETA to protest about the fur trade. The Person of Interest star confirmed that she didn’t think any animal should suffer for fashion as she was photographed completely naked for this advertisement.
Pink is one of the latest celebrities to take part in one of PETA’s campaigns as she too protested against the use of fur. Speaking about her involvement she said: “I wish everyone was forced to learn the horrors that these animals go through for fashion trends. I hope fur wearers get bitten in the ass by the same kind of animal they wear on their back.”
Alicia Silverstone, the actress most famous for appearing in Clueless, has for a long time been an outspoken animal rights activist. She is a committed vegan and took part in the PETA campaign with an advert that promoted vegetarianism, though it was eventually banned in Texas for its sexual content.
Christy Turlington became the very first supermodel to pose nude for PETA when she chose to take part in the anti-fur campaign the organization was running. Having made her name alongside fellow models Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford, Turlington’s shoot was a major part of PETA’s ability to get more celebrities to take part in the future.
Anyone who has seen the hit television show House will be familiar with 48-year-old Lisa Edelstein. She took part in PETA’s Go Vegetarian campaign three years ago and has herself followed the diet for 30 years.
Jamelia is a British based singer, songwriter, television presenter and actor who has won numerous awards for her work. She collaborated with PETA UK in 2014 to protest the use of fur by fashion designers, with Mary McCartney acting as the photographer for the session.
While she has never been afraid to strip off for a cause, having appeared nude in a Calvin Klein commercial previously, Eva Mendes decided to take part in the PETA campaign against the fur trade. She spoke at the time about her desire to help stop the senseless killing of animals simply to use their fur for clothing.
