Taraji P. Henson Is A Naked Angel In Her New PETA Campaign
Taraji P. Henson is doing it doggystyle in her latest ad for PETA.
The Person of Interest actress shares the spotlight with her adorable Yorkie named Uncle Willie for the campaign banning animal cruelty. “Chained dogs suffer day in and day out,” states the ad. “They are cold, hungry, thirsty, vulnerable, and lonely. Keep them inside, where it’s safe and warm.”
Shot by famed celebrity photographer Don Flood, the 42-year-old actress looks heavenly in her wings holding her petite pup, playing the “Angel For Animals.” Taraji shares her feelings for her furry little friend in the behind-the-scenes video. “I never thought I could be in love with an animal until I had Willy,” she gushes. “He’s our family. He has beds in every room. He travels everywhere I go. He’s just the best companion. Dogs to me are like children. They are the closest thing to God. They are so pure in their love.”
For Taraji, who worked with PETA back in 2011 in the ad above, working with PETA this time around was a no-brainer. “PETA is always doing interesting things and coming up with innovative ways to take care of so many abandon dogs. I guess what was very intriguing to me was to find out that they build houses to combat the problem of people leaving their dogs outside and unchained,” she said. “We’re going to build a house for the dog, so that at least when it’s raining they have something over their heads.”
