Penelope Cruz Joins Forces With PETA, Urges People To Ditch The Fur In New Ad

Penelope Cruz teams up with PETA to urge people to ditch the fur in the organization’s latest advert.

Cruz, 44, who appeared in an anti-fur ad for PETA back in 2012, can be seen cradling a kitten in the campaign image.

The pic includes the words: “Make Us Purr. Don’t Wear Fur.”

The image follows a recent decision by top fashion designers and retailers – including Burberry, Gucci, Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenberg, John Galliano, and many others – to go 100 percent fur-free.

The actress explains in a press release: “Finally, so many designers are going fur-free, and I’m looking forward to the day when no animal is caged or trapped and killed for fur.”

She also shares: “I’m strong and opinionated. Those qualities brought me a lot of problems since I was a little girl in school, saying, ‘I don’t agree,’ and fighting with the children. It’s part of my curiosity for life.”
