Pamela Anderson London, Feb 2 (IANS) Hollywood actress Penelope Cruz has condemned the use of real fur while posing for an anti-fur campaign for PETA in New York.

The campaign shoot will be displayed on a 70-foot billboard outside New York’s Madison Square Garden throughout the New York Fashion Week February 9 to 16. Milan and London will also be seeing similar campaigns, reports

Yvonne Taylor, senior programme manager for PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals), said: “Penelope Cruz has appeared on every ‘best-dressed’ list in the world, and the one thing you’ll never see her wearing is fur.”

“One couldn’t ask for a more fitting emblem of the modern, glamorous woman who knows that there’s nothing more beautiful than a woman who has a look that kills without anyone having to die for it.”

Cruz isn’t the only famous name fighting for animal rights, celebs like Kelly Osbourne, Pink, Pamela Anderson and Eva Mendes have all been a part of PETA campaigns in the past.
