Kristen Stewart went on ‘The Tonight Show’ with Jay Leno on Thursday night and chatted about her stance on fur. The host pulled out a photo of the actress from W Magazine. In it, she looks like she’s wearing a black fur garment so Leno said to her, “You took a lot of heat for this picture.” Addressing the controversy, the actress said, “That’s not fur. I would never wear fur, ever.”
That simple declaration prompted quite a response from the live audience. Folks clapped and cheered for the ethical actress. Stewart said, “I’m not making any grand statements.”
However, with fur rebounding in recent years among some major fashion houses, it is quite a grand statement. Who knows. Maybe Stewart will participate in a fur free campaign now that she’s made her feelings clear.
See the video below and tune in at the 1 minute 12 second mark for her reaction to fur.
