Ok, before you get too excited about this story let us preface it with one thing; Penelope Cruz will NOT be getting naked for PETA. But, she will be headlining a campaign that speaks out against wearing fur.
As we all know, PETA has become famous for getting stars to bare all for its animal rights campaigns. And while Penelope will be showing a little bit of skin for her ad, it will only be shot from the neck up.
Cruz’ poster will feature the headline “Give Fur The Cold Shoulder,” with an image of (you guessed it) the back of her shoulder. But it’s an important message nonetheless and it’s about to get plastered all over New York City’s Penn Station.
PETA’s Senior Vice President Lisa Lang summed up the concept in a recent statement to Us Weekly,
“Penelope has appeared on every ‘best-dressed’ list in the world, and the one thing you’ll never see her wearing is fur. PETA 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.”
