Gwyneth Paltrow to PETA: Sorry!

Gwyneth Paltrow to PETA: Sorry!

Gwyneth Paltrow has issued a public apology to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) for wearing fur in her Tod’s campaign photos.

In August, PETA released a statement that said, “Gwyneth Paltrow won’t be the apple of her daughter’s eye if she continues to flaunt fur.”

The 36-year-old actress just apologized to PETA, saying, “That was awkward, and I’m glad you asked, because I do not wear fur at all. It was a day-long photo shoot on a boat near Capri, and there were all sorts of poses behind and draped a stole around my shoulder. I didn’t pay much attention to it and when I noticed it was fur, I assumed it was fake fur, but did not ask, so it’s my fault. I was very surprised when they ended up using that one shot out of hundreds for the centerpiece of the Tod’s ads. I know it’s not a great excuse, but I hope you and your members understand.”

Wow WHAT?

I dislike her but omg PETA is insane they bascially said they are gonna kill her if she continues to wear fur and that her daughter will be without her mother.

She must be scared out of her mind and issued this apology,when will anyone have th guts to stand up to those psychos?

I dont wear fur, but if people its their effing right!

^ You’re misreading their statement. They never threatened to kill her.

# 3

PETA needs to ban lipsticks, shoes, leather goods, couches, silk everything.. they need to take a deep breath, calm down and let people be.

she might not wear fur now but she used to and even did an interview about how easy it was overseas to wear fur because people don’t give you a hard time about it

# 9

I don’t see what difference the apology makes. She’s still promoting Tod’s other – suede and leather – products.

#3 – That was before electricity. Today people don’t need fur to survive at all, unless you live without shelter or electricity (which some people do).

not buying it @ 11/20/2008 at 7:25 pm

she doesn’t know real from fake fur? BOGUS! ***** was busted.

Why is she saying sorry to PETA??? She needs to say sorry to that dead rat she was wearing. And like someone said… she is still wearing leather. I hate when people cry over someone wearing fur. While they’re wearing leather boots and carrying a python hand bag.

I bet Stella gave her a good chewing out after she saw the ad.

Fur is disgusting. Anyone who wears fur should be ashamed of themselves. Did you know that animals are SKINNED ALIVE for their fur?

If you don’t believe me, search it on google. There are plenty of videos of it online and they’re horrifying.

Anyone who wears fur is cruel and heartless. This is not year 1841 in winter Siberia. We do not need to kill animals for their fur. There is no excuse at all.

It is nice that she apologized, but she’s not an idiot…o.k., maybe she is…it would have taken a minute just to ask whether the fur was real or not.

Tod’s seemed to really want her for their campaign. I’m sure they would have accommodated her request.

In that same interview, she also said she’s “pretty much vegetarian.”

I saw her eating clams on that cooking show and I remember she told Oprah she eats two legged animals.

Was that really fur? I thought it was Gwynnie’s merkin for her post-Brazilian wax period.

Not surprising. Gwneth was never the sharpest tool in the shed even though she looks like a preppy princess.

This talk of animal activism makes me hungry for KFC!

just asking @ 11/20/2008 at 8:03 pm

She doesn’t wear fur? What about that poodle she wore at The London Film Festival?

Is it just me or does Gwyneth look like a tranny version of that vampire in True Blood?

…and now Gwyn will donate all her Tod’s $$$ to charity?

Never mind :-)

Tod’s is lame. She looks fugly as hell in the ads.

What a ****.
