A couple weeks ago, images leaked from the set of the Sex and the City film with Kim Cattrall’s character, Samantha, upset over red paint thrown on her white fur coat. The scene had some unnamed off-screen organization dousing the actress and decrying the use of animal pelts. Amazingly, four separate fur coats were required to shoot that one scene!
Now Cattrall, who in real life does not endorse or wear fur, has made arrangements to have the coats shipped to PETA once filming is complete. As they’ve done with the more than 15,000 fur coats they’ve received over the past 15 years, the animal rights org will donate the coats to the homeless — but not before making a few modifications of their own. From the article,
“‘The only people who can be excused for wearing fur are the homeless-to keep warm during the winter,’ says PETA rep Michael McGraw. And yes, PETA cleans the pelts to get rid of the red paint. However, the group shaves a section down and covers it with a PETA patch because, says McGraw, ‘It drastically reduces its resale value.’
