Charlize Theron - "No fur" spokesperson

PETA announced the selection of Charlize Theron as their new "No Fur" campaign spokesperson and our reaction was an overwhelming "at-a-girl."

Ms Theron has been a constant friend to animals since her early childhood growing up on a South African farm. Her mother taught her respect for all living creatures and that lesson has obviously stayed with her to this day.

The award winning actress, who has three dogs, agreed to pose for a billboard campaign starting this fall sponsored by PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Theron says that "Fur isn't necessary. It doesn't make sense to me to let these animals suffer for fashion."

We at ABN applaude PETA and Charlize Theron for continuing this highly effective campaign on behalf of animals everywhere, and so we reprise this 1999 Esquire cover and trust that Esquire will not be too embarrassed - if there is one thing men love more than a beautiful woman it must surely be their best friend, their dog.
