Alicia Silverstone Would Rather Go Naked

Alicia Silverstone
The 90's sexy vixen Alicia Silverstone revealed to her followers that she would rather go naked than wear wool. And she's making that very clear in her new ad for PETA, in which she poses nude holding a sheep mask and standing with her back to the camera. A massive billboard of the image now stands near Times Square in New York City.

"If you’re trying to avoid wool, why not make that leap?” she suggests in a related video that’s part of PETA’s new #WoolFreeWinter campaign. "Say, 'I'm never going to buy wool again.'"

She continues, "Wool, in general, has not been thought about by many, many people. It's just not something that’s brought to their attention. The biggest thing that people always say to me is, 'Oh, but they just shear the sheep! They don’t kill the sheep.'" The video then cuts to graphic images of sheep being tortured for their wool, the very fabric that’s in the sweater you are probably wearing right now.

As the PETA website goes on to explain, "If they were left alone and not genetically manipulated, sheep would grow just enough wool to protect themselves from temperature extremes. The fleece provides them with effective insulation against both cold and heat." Additionally, it notes, "Shearers are usually paid by volume, not by the hour, which encourages fast work without any regard for the welfare of the sheep. This hasty and careless shearing leads to frequent injuries, and workers use a needle and thread to sew the worst wounds shut — without any pain relief. Strips of skin — and even teats, tails, and ears — are often cut or ripped off during shearing."
