Anna Does Marilyn for PETA
2004-12-15

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, but a fur coat can be her worst enemy, according to Anna Nicole Smith. Donning a pink satin dress and surrounded by a group of tuxedoed suitors, Anna Nicole evokes Marilyn Monroe in PETA's new 'Gentlemen Prefer Fur-Free Blondes' ad campaign. The ad spotlights a survey in the September issue of Marie Claire, which found that eight out of 10 men find fur a turnoff because it's so cruel. The ad's tagline: 'If you want to hook up, hang it up.'

'To kill an animal for a coat is crazy,' says Anna Nicole, who feels that although it may have been a status symbol in the era of her idol, Marilyn Monroe, fur is now a social liability. 'My late husband gave me two fur coats years ago, but I've never worn them, and I never will. I'm a HUGE animal lover and have three dogs, Sugar Pie, Marilyn, and Puppy. How can anybody who calls themselves an animal lover wear fur? What they do to these animals to make fur coats should be illegal.'

Many of Hollywood's most stylish stars continue to speak out against fur. Supermodel Gisele Bündchen—who used to pose for fur ads but now regrets it—told Vanity Fair, 'It was a bad decision on my part, because I don't wear fur. … I am the biggest animal-lover in the world.' Sarah Jessica Parker recently said that unlike her character on Sex and the City, she would never wear fur. And Oscar winner Charlize Theron will appear in PETA's 'If You Wouldn't Wear Your Dog, Please Don't Wear Any Fur' billboard campaign.
