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.”
