Celebs pose nude for PETA

If you think Miley Cyrus’s outfits are revealing, get a load of her ex in his birthday suit!

Aspiring country singer and former underwear model Justin Gaston has stripped down for a steamy anti-fur photo shoot for PETA. The shots show him – all of him – in a variety of racy poses with wannabe model Giglianne Braga and actor hopeful Ben Elliot, his co-stars on the Hulu reality series “If I Can Dream.”

"With this PETA campaign, what I really wanted was it not to be about me but to be about the animals," Gaston, 21, said. "We're trying to bring light to this cause."

Joining Cyrus’s former flame in the fight for critter rights is actress Jenna Dewan Tatum, who poses in nothing but snake-scale body paint to spotlight the slaughtering of animals to turn their exotic skins into accessories.

In a behind-the-scenes video from her “Leave Animals Out of Your Wardrobe” shoot for PETA, the 29-year-old wife of actor Channing Tatum, says, “There’s faux alligator, faux python, there’s faux snakeskin. There’s a lot of different things you can find, you just have to ask. Not only are you helping animals and not promoting cruelty, but you are saving money.”

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) (stylized PeTA) is an American animal rights organization based in Norfolk, Virginia, and led by Ingrid Newkirk, its international president. A non-profit corporation with 300 employees, it claims to have three million members and supporters and to be the largest animal rights group in the world. Its slogan is "animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment or abuse in any way."-,`"

    Many thanks

    Big deal. Using PETA to boost your profile between jobs is just another box to tick if you want to keep treading water in Hollywood.

    So why does PETA insist on nude celebrities to promote it's agenda? Because if Ingrid Newkirk did it PETA would never get another donation...

      Nude celebrities don't have to look that great... it's the fact that they're celebrities and somehow the public actually thinks they can relate to these tools.

      Case in point... Khloe Kardashian.

      Apparently you miss the point of the PETA ads.

      Why can't we bring together this article with the one about Heidi Klum. If she posed, sales would be most excellent. Heck, even these two troublemakers would make for a good photo shoot. Don't they look like twins?
