Sunny Leone is known for raising her voice for women empowerment and supporting social causes. She also helps to raise funds for cancer patients under the American Cancer Society and also works with animal rights organisation PETA.
Sunny has been associated with PETA since the last couple of years and makes it a point to protest against the ill-treatment of animals. The actress has now put her bold image to good use as she has shot for a campaign by PETA that promotes animal-free fashion. Sunny's musician husband, Daniel Weber has also shot along with her. In the picture, the couple can be seen wearing absolutely nothing with Daniel flaunting his tattooed body as they promote the campaign 'Ink Not Mink.'
Sunny, in a statement, said, "We live in a world with such amazing advances in vegan materials and options for everyone. There is no reason for anyone to support cruelty in any form. Synthetic leather, mock croc, and even faux fur are some of the many great options."
"We need to be a voice for animals and make sure we understand that, without them, there is no us. We must co-exist and learn to respect," said Daniel.
PETA, in a statement, said, "Millions of foxes, minks, coyotes, rabbits, and even dogs and cats are bludgeoned to death, electrocuted, strangled, or skinned alive—all in the name of fashion."
Sunny was named PETA's Person of the Year last year and has previously been part of pro-vegetarian and dog and cat sterilisation campaigns of the animal rights organization.
The ad, which has been shot by ace photographer Subi Samuel and styled by Hitendra Kapoor, has been unveiled during the World Vegan Month.
The list of the stars who support being vegetarian include, Anushka Sharma, Kangana Ranaut, Alia Bhatt, Shahid Kapoor, Vidyut Jammwal, Amitabh Bachchan, Bryan Adams, Casey Affleck, Joaquin Phoenix and others.
On the work front, the actress has a release next week in the form of Tera Intezaar that sees her romancing Arbaaz Khan on screen.
