Taraji P. Henson PETA Los Angeles, Jan 28 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Taraji P. Henson has posed naked for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ anti-fur campaign.

Henson is the latest celebrity to strip for the campaign. Already Kimora Lee Simmons and Nia Long have all posed for the “Fur? I’d Rather Go Naked” campaign by PETA.

The star said on the popular micro blogging and social networking site Twitter, on Wednesday ahead of the release of the picture that, “Wanna see me naked?!?! Watch me on Chelsea Lately tomorrow night!! I always have so much fun with u @chelseahandler.”

Henson revealed she was motivated to strip for the campaign after watching a documentary on how fur is taken from animals. She said she cried after realizing that the furs are taken from the skin of the animals while they are still alive.

Henson has been seen previously wearing furs. She revealed the experience with the documentary has changed all that.

She said “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.”
