Joaquin Phoenix has recorded a short film for PETA calling on his fellow stars to stop wearing products made from animals.

“Exotic animals are mostly unknown to us, and so is what they suffer before being turned into belts and bags,” he says on the video. “Every year millions of reptiles are slaughtered so handbags, belts and shoes can be made from their skin. The animals’ welfare is not a consideration to those who hunt, skin and farm them.”

The film will be sent to stars who are known to wear clothes and accessories made from skins of animals such as snakes and alligators.
