Hollywood rocker Dave Navarro stripped down naked for a controversial new PETA ad which is bringing awareness to cosmetic testing on animals. Dave, who can always be found rocking the guyliner, black nail polish and even eyeshadow, says he recently learned of the cruel ways animals are used to test cosmetics and beauty products. He was appalled.
“I was on the set of some project where I was using makeup and someone mentioned that it was “cruelty free” and I said, ‘What does that mean?’ and they explained to me that a lot of makeup in the marketplace is tested on animals in a profoundly inhumane way.”
“When trying to do this photo shoot I was really imagining what’s happening to the animals in the labs that are doing this animal testing. They’re not taking a bunny rabbit and putting mascara on it, they’re injecting a chemical directly into it’s eye to see what kind of adverse reaction happens. And in many cases parts of their bodies are ripped open, they’re all alive, and they’re all aware.”
Check out this behind the scenes footage of Dave Navarro’s PETA ad, and yes, he’s in his underwear – and naked.
