Alicia Silverstone poses nude for PETA
Wearing leather? As if.
Alicia Silverstone bared it all and posed nude in only faux leather boots for PETA’s new campaign, in an effort to promote more sustainable, vegan versions of the material.
“If it takes me getting naked for you to care about animals then that is what I’m after,” the “Clueless” star, 46, said in a campaign video.
“I never, ever, get naked in TV, in film, nothing, never, nope — but I’ve done it for PETA because that’s how much it matters to me,” the “Kind Mama” author explained.
“I’d rather go naked than wear animals,” the Aerosmith music video star declared.
“There’s this idea that leather is somehow better for the earth but what they don’t realize is the amount of resources – water, food, oil for transport – the amount of energy that goes into making leather is extraordinary. It’s just not sustainable. The Earth can’t handle it,” she refuted.
The former teen idol also posed with a cactus to encourage people to buy different types of vegan leather.
“DON’T BE A PRICK,” the PETA picture proclaims. “Wear Vegan. Buy cactus, mushroom or apple leather instead!”
This isn’t the first time the “Clueless” star has stripped down for a cause she loves. In 2019, she took it all off for PETA to encourage folks to ditch wool, with a Times Square billboard to get the message across — and her new campaign will have its own billboard just in time for the New Year’s Eve ball drop.
Silverstone has been a vegan since 1999 when she was 21 and has continued to extol the meat-free lifestyle.
In 2018, the plant-based cookbook creator credited her family’s vegan diet with keeping her 11-year-old son, Bear Blu, whom she shares with her ex-husband Christopher Jarecki, healthy.
“He’s never had to take medicine in his life,” she told Page Six at the time. “He can get sniffles and a runny nose but he’s not down, he still goes to school. Two times in his life has he been like ‘Mommy I don’t feel good,’ and it was only for a few hours and he was back running around.”
Other celebs who have showed off their skin for PETA include Bethenny Frankel, Pamela Anderson, Joanna Krupa, Pink, Khloé Kardashian and more.
