Vegetarian and animal lover Christina Applegate is encouraging holiday shoppers not to buy fur for the holidays in a revealing PETA e-card.
The Samantha Who? star, 35, tells PETA that her house “has been basically a zoo” since childhood.
Everything I have has dog hair on it, and thatâ€™s just the way it is!”
The card reads, “Cross cruelty off your shopping list by avoiding fur coats, collars, and cuffs (unless it’s fake fur of course.)”
Applegate says she turned vegetarian during lunch one day on the set of her former sitcom, Married with Children, when she was a teenager.
“[I realized] I can’t eat something that has been alive,” she said. “So I stopped, and that was it. That was the last time.”
Christina Applegate walks her pet pooch in Yorkville today. Applegate is in Canada shooting her latest movie The Rocker, a comedy.
Here’s a brief synopsis:
Pete Best, the drummer who was fired from the pre-fame Beatles, gets a second chance to rock and roll when he joins the garage band of his nephew Matt (played by Josh Gad). His love interest, played by Applegate is the mother of the band’s guitarist.
