One of my favorite actresses Taraji P. Henson shows her sick figure on her new PETA campaign for PETA’s “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign, and I must say for a forty year old woman, she keeps it together well, she doesn’t look a day older than 30, ok back to the campaign, here’s what Taraji had to say about it.
Before I saw that documentary …you know I’m a girly girl, I love fashion because it was hot. Whoever was the hottest model was walking it down the runway or whatever the new fashion was I was into because I’m an actress, that’s what I do, I’m a girly girl, I like to dress up. I would wear fur, but I saw this documentary, and I was riveted. I cried. … Could you imagine somebody ripping your hair out, while you’re still awake, fully conscious? It’s ridiculous, for the sake of fashion.
When I realized what went into—not just, we’re not just even talking about a full-length fur coat, I’m talking about just … fur on your gloves or on your jacket or—what goes into making that little piece of fur ripped my heart out. And as humans, we have control. What if someone said, ‘Black skin is the new fur’? I don’t think a living being should suffer for the sake of fashion, period,” Henson proclaims. “End of story.
Ms. Henson also dropped by “The Chelsea Lately Show” last night. She talked about some of her upcoming projects, and spoke about her ideal man. Check out the clip.
