My couch is made of cat’s hair. The cushions have been obscured, and it’s made of salt-and-pepper fur. I can’t have visitors. I can’t ask people to sit on that couch because they become implicated in the furriness of it, and they’re walking around, and it’s not fair to people.

I think the reality is that, for me, real fur is extraordinarily old fashioned. I think you look old. Even if you’re 20, and you’ve got a real fur coat, you just look like an old, unaware, unconscious being on the planet. It’s not relevant, it’s not sexy, it’s not fashionable, and it’s not cool.

But if an actress asks me my opinion, I would tell her there are a million different designers who make faux fur. If you like that look, wear faux fur. If you’re doing it on the red carpet, you’re doing it for how it looks. Faux fur and real fur look the same on camera.
I am an urban vegan. I love the glossy pages of ‘Vogue,’ even though I won’t purchase the leather shoes and bags I see there, and being reminded that the fur trade even exists breaks my heart.
