We’ve been getting brief appearances by Joaquin Phoenix since his return from exile as a caveman rapper — and we’re happy to once more see him championing animal rights for PETA.

The actor is backing a new campaign urging stars against wearing exotic animal skins. He says, “Exotic animals are mostly unknown to us, and so is what they suffer before being turned into belts and bags. Every year millions of reptiles are slaughtered so handbags, belts and shoes can be made from their skin. The animals’ welfare is not a consideration to those who hunt, skin and farm them.”

A PETA rep told US Weekly that the video will be sent to stars including Jessica Simpson, Victoria Beckham and Sarah Jessica Parker in a bid to change their fashion habits. Check it out below!
