Lea Michele Films New Anti-Fur PSA for PETA

Glee star Lea Michele has teamed up with PETA for a new anti-fur PSA titled "If You Wouldn’t Wear Your Dog, Please Don’t Wear Any Fur." Watch PETA's interview with Michele below, and watch the PSA at EW's Popwatch.

In the PSA, shot on a set designed to mimic a school hallway, Michele says:

“Everyone wants to fit in and feel like they belong. But sometimes you have to take a stand and step away from the crowd… With so many fashionable, cruelty-free options available, there’s really no excuse for joining a club that wears someone else’s coat.

“When I see someone wearing a fur coat, the first thing that comes to my mind is why? Why do you need to have a fur coat? Why? You could be just as warm in any other kind of coat that hasn’t, you know, been made by killing animals. Why?” Then she adds, with a giggle, “And it’s ugly. You really look ugly. I don’t think you get it.”
