PETA Hearts Dita (Von Teese) Except Fur One Thing

by at . Comments

Dita Von Teese, who stars in PETA's new Animal Birth Control campaign, is a long-time wearer of fur. And PETA is cool with that.

"PETA's totally aware of me," Von Teese said before performing, in fox fur, her signature striptease at the Macy's Passport AIDS benefit last week.

"I'm not working with PETA to tell people to be vegetarians or to stop wearing fur. I am there to strictly speak about spaying and neutering pets."

Bet she'd like to spay and neuter Evan Rachel Wood and Marilyn Manson while she's at it!

For its part, the animal-rights organization says it was aware of Dita Von Teese's fur affections before approaching her to star in its campaign.

"She has some vintage furs she wears occasionally," says PETA spokesman Michael McGraw. "PETA often works with celebrities on an issue they feel comfortable supporting, whether it's supporting spaying and neutering, or speaking out against products that are tested on animals. So they may not be an animal rights activist as a whole, but their contribution to any of our campaigns is appreciated."

The group says it has not yet asked Dita Von Teese to stop wearing fur, but will "possibly" have that discussion in the future: "We're happy to have her support on that issue (spaying / neutering), and we'll see where it goes," says McGraw.

To sum up recent PETA news, for those of you keeping score at home:

  • Pamela Anderson would just as soon have you see Pamela Anderson nude 24-7 than see her wearing fur. She's also possibly engaged to Rick Salomon.
  • Alicia Silverstone is naked and a vegetarian.
  • Vintage fur is the only thing covering an otherwise naked Dita Von Teese during some of her stripteases, but it comes off after awhile.
