Melbourne (ANI): Hollywood actress Kate Winslet has received an apology from Vanity Fair magazine after she unknowingly posed with genuine fox fur in the photoshoot. The magazine has apologised to the five-time Oscar-nominated actress for 'miscommunication', insisting that they thought she was aware of it. The 33-year-old actress, who's a strong animal rights advocator, had denied claims that she consciously wore fur for the recent Vanity Fair photoshoot, insisting that she believed that the garment was fake.
"Although there were both real and fake furs on set, the fur used in the photograph is real," Daily Telegraph quoted Vanity Fair spokesman, as saying. "We thought Miss Winslet was aware of this and we're sorry for the miscommunication," he added.
Winslet's rep also said that the actress didn't know the garment was made of genuine fox fur. "She thought it was false. There was apparently false fur there and real fur there. And she definitely understood it was false," said her spokeswoman. "Kate never wears fur. She's very firm on that."
