Washington (ANI): Actress Eva Mendes has become the latest celebrity to sign up to PETA"s anti-fur campaign. The actress is fronting the animal rights campaign group's latest expose of the fur industry. PETA"s new campaign includes an investigation into fur farms and markets in China.
"Millions of animals are killed for their pelts each year... I didn't always know how animals were killed for their fur, and I even wore fur once myself," Contactmusic quoted her as saying. "When I learned how cruel the fur industry is - and that there are no laws protecting these animals - I swore that I'd never wear it again. Please join me today as we go behind the scenes of the international fur trade, and find out how you can look glamorous without supporting animal suffering," she added.
The 35-year-old star said she once wore fur, but having a dog has changed her ways forever. She said: "I have a dog named Hugo and it literally changed my life. Every choice that I make, I always think about my little Hugo and think, 'God, would I eat him? Would I cage him up, and you know, would I skin him?' No, of course not."
