Yes, they’re known for leading the charge when it comes to animal cruelty, but PETA is almost as famous for their nude celebrity ad campaigns and their iconic slogan “I’d rather go naked than wear fur.”
Many celebs have joined forces with PETA to bring awareness to vegetarianism and animal cruelty, and most prove their point by getting naked. We’re not complaining. The ad that started it all? Way before Khloe Kardashian and Christina Applegate stripped down for PETA, it was—drumroll, please—the Go-Gos!
That’s right, Gina Schock, Kathy Valentine, Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin and Charlotte Caffey launched PETA’s “naked” ad campaign way back in 1991. And since then, we’ve seen rockstars, movie stars, reality stars and porn stars all take part.
We’ve rounded up 33 celebs who used their large followings to get the word out about animal cruelty by baring it all in PETA advertisements.
