Taraji P. Henson spreads her wings in her latest ad for PETA. The actress is no stranger to teaming up with the animal rights organization, only this time she decided not to pose nude. The “Be An Angel For Animals” campaign aims to raise awareness for homeless animals seeking shelter.
In the behind the scene footage of her photo shoot, Taraji shares how she was inspired to participate because of her love for her own dog, Willy. “I never thought I could be in love with an animal until I had Willy. He’s our family. He has beds in every room. He travels everywhere I go. He’s just the best companion.”
She added, “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. We’re going to build a house for the dog, so that at least when its raining they have something over their heads.”
We always loved Taraji, but this just makes us love her even more. Press play. — Terry Carter
