Eva Mendes Premieres New Fur Expose

Published by PETA.

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 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.
