Paris' fur vow
09:30 26 June 2006
Paris Hilton has vowed to never wear fur again - after being shown a video by Heather Mills McCartney of animals being skinned alive.
The blonde star was made to watch the gruesome PETA film by the devout animal rights activist - who is currently divorcing husband Sir Paul McCartney - during a recent evening at her home.
The video showed dogs being skinned alive for their fur, and as the stomach-churning images were shown Heather explained to Paris that even fake fur can contain dog and cat hair.
Paris' spokesman, Elliot Mintz, revealed: "Paris does not wear fur, nor will she wear fur described as artificial now she knows it came off the backs of animals. She is grateful to Heather for educating us on this terrible subject."
Paris is not the only celebrity joining the anti-fur brigade.
Pamela Anderson is planning to strip naked in a shop window - as part of a protest against the trade.
The former 'Baywatch' actress is to pose nude in the window of fashion designer Stella McCartney's London clothes shop for PETA.
Pamela, renowned for her work with the group, and Paul McCartney's daughter are both hopeful the protest will draw attention to PETA's campaign to ban the use of fur in fashion.
