20 Stars Who Stripped Down & Posed Naked For PETA (PHOTOS)

The non-profit group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has a long history of enlisting celebrity activists. From vegetarians and animal rights champions to "reformed" fur wearers and budding environmentalists, celebs have long appeared in PETA's print advertisements and videos. Many of these celebrities are often featured nude, which has led to criticism from feminist groups that claim these images objectify women and rely on oppressive "sex sells" ideologies. Others claim it's empowering when women choose to flaunt their bodies in order to convey a message dear to their hearts. Whatever your personal feelings on PETA's nude ads, there's no denying that they're effective in drawing attention.
