Fur Crying Out Loud!
Gwyneth has sparked outrage with her latest ad campaign

GWYNETH PALTROW has angered animal rights campaigners by endorsing a new collection of luxury goods using fur.

The actress appears in Italian designer Tod's advertising campaign draped in fox fur and wearing fur-lined boots.

The 35-year-old and husband Coldplay singer CHRIS MARTIN have previously won praise for their green credentials.

But Gwynnie has angered animal rights campaigners with her latest project.

MARK GLOVER, director of Respect for Animals, says, "Gwyneth Paltrow should be ashamed. I can only assume that Paltrow either is ignorant of the facts or lacks human decency and compassion."

And a spokesman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) claim calls to the star had been rebuffed.

The spokesman adds, "We've written to her many times, and sent her videos showing how animals suffer for fur, but have never received a response.

"Apparently her beauty really is only skin deep. Gwyneth Paltrow won't be the apple of her daughter's eye if she continues to flaunt fur. It's a terrible example to set for a young child."

A spokesman for Paltrow and Martin was unavailable for comment. For daily celebrity news updates sign up to our newsletter www.ahlanlive.com/newsletter
