As a decent person with compassion, it just seems like the right thing to do," Williams said.  (Photo: Courtesy PETA)

Eva Mendes - In 2007, the sexy actress turned her back on fur saying, "I feel like in recent years, due to pop culture, fur has made a comeback. Some people still see wearing fur as glamorous and a sign of prosperity. Personally I think wearing a baby chinchilla says, 'I'm ignorant,' vs. saying 'I'm a badass.' I don't think you can force people to change their attitudes, but you can help to educate them and to lead by example."  (Photo: Courtesy PETA)
