Eva Mendes Premieres New Fur Expose

Written by PETA | November 23, 2009

Eva Mendes’ performance in Bad Lieutenant has Hollywood talking. And today, with Fur-Free Friday fast approaching, the talk of tinsel-town debuted PETA’s new fur exposé.


Eva Mendes


Eva says, “I didn’t always know how animals were killed for their fur, and I even wore fur once myself.” But then the compassionate (and smoldering-hot) actor learned that millions of animals are killed every year in the cruel fur industry. “I swore that I’d never wear it again,” she says. Now, in PETA’s new exposé (and just in time for the holiday shopping season), Eva is urging viewers to go for a look that kills without killing animals—by forgoing fur in favor of glamorous alternatives.

Why should you go-go-faux? Dogs, cats, foxes, minks, rabbits, and other animals often suffer the pain of having their skin ripped from their bodies while they are conscious and able to feel every agonizing minute. The only way to bring an end to the suffering is to follow Eva’s lead and never wear any fur.

    Just another reason why I love Eva Mendez! One of the most beautiful ladies and now one of the most compassionate. Love you Eva!!!! Now it’s time for everyone to stop wearing dead animals because it makes women and men look like HAGS!

    We need enlightened Latinas to lead the way in the humane treatment of animals movement.

  • John Carmody says:

    Eva well done! That’s why people should respect ‘celebrities’ who do ‘something’ to help animals whether it’s promoting spaying or neutering or an antifur campaign. People have to start somewhere so it’s important that we as a movement give people a chance to educate themselves and change! Eva Mendes once a fur wearer now speaking out against fur couldnt she be doing worse by actually wearing fur? Me thinks so and even better again she’s stopped eating meat too YAY!!!!
