AceShowbiz - Alicia Silverstone strips down for PETA anti-wool campaign. The 40-year-old actress flaunts her butt while putting her naked backside on full display in a lush green forest. The poster will debut near Times Square in New York City later this week.
In the NSFW ad, Alicia stands with her body facing away from the camera. The "Clueless" actress holds a sheep mask with her left hand while her right hand touches her right arm. She wears minimal makeup and her blonde locks are styled in natural waves.
"Actor & bestselling author @aliciasilverstone would rather go naked than wear wool!" PETA writes on Instagram, "Sheep are gentle, kind animals who are often beaten, kicked, & mutilated so their wool can be made into sweaters, scarves, & other clothing items. Choose fake, for animals' sake!"
In an accompanying campaign video, Alicia says, "Wool in general has not been thought about by many, many people. It's just not something that's really brought to their attention. The biggest thing that people always say to me is, 'Oh, but they just shear the sheep; they don't kill the sheep.' Shearing isn't like, 'Oh, let me just take your hair off because you need to give me your coat.' It's not like that. It's like on the slaughterhouse floor where there's a conveyer belt and it's going that fast. It's just so fast, the shearing process."
The video then shows several sheep being slaughtered. "They're cut. They're harmed. They get very seriously wounded, and there's no care for them when they are wounded," she adds, "It's just, 'Move onto the next.' These are not creatures to the people who are doing this; they're just objects. When the sheep are no longer useful, they're killed. So, there is no happy place that they get to go for being a wool sheep. So, if you're trying to avoid wool, why not make that leap? Say, 'I'm never going to buy wool again.' "
