Benjamin Button's momma is laying it all out for animals!
Taraji P. Henson, best known for playing the woman who takes in an abandoned (and drastically aged) baby in the film "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," is the new star of an anti-fur ad for PETA.
The 40-year-old Academy Award nominee told the animal rights organization, "I don't think a living being should suffer for the sake of fashion, period. End of story."
Like other famous faces before her, including Eva Mendes, Khloe Kardashian and Alicia Silverstone, Henson said she decided to take action and strip down after seeing a disturbing documentary about the treatment of animals on fur farms.
"When I realized what went into — not just, we're not just even talking about a full-length fur coat, I'm talking about just … fur on your gloves or on your jacket or — what goes into making that little piece of fur ripped my heart out," she said. "And as humans, we have control. What if someone said, 'Black skin is the new fur'?"
