Italian model, actor, and George Clooney's leading lady Elisabetta Canalis has just shot a new anti-fur ad for PETA, which she calls "the best reason why I got naked in my life."
Canalis says that her opposition to cruelty to animals started when she was very young. "I was a kid, a little girl, and was watching TV at home and they showed a documentary. And in the documentary I saw how they killed little animals, like electrocuting them, drowning them, bludgeoning them. I was shocked because I was a little girl, but by that moment I thought that I would never, never, never wear fur in my life."
Canalis' ad is slated to launch in the fall, but you can catch a sneak peak in this behind-the-scenes video from her PETA photo shoot.
