    Brooke Shields Gets Skinned by PETA

    Furry Vengeance isn't just the name of Brooke Shields' last movie.

    It also seems to be what PETA wants right about now after the actress made a trip recently to Denmark to fulfill her "little girl's dream" of designing a mink coat…

    The animal-rights organization is lashing out at Shields for visiting Kopenhagen Fur's workshop back in March and making comments such as "I will advocate that both my generation and the younger generation can wear fur" and "I will wear the fur garment when I follow my children to school, when I drink coffee and when I sleep."

    Not surprisingly, a post on PETA's website reads: "When I was a little girl, I dreamed about growing up to be a rock star. Or maybe a veterinarian. Or a roller derby queen. I didn't dream about anally electrocuting animals on fur farms, but apparently Brooke Shields did."

    But the criticism doesn't stop there, with a few potshots at Shields' livelihood thrown in for good measure.

    "We understand that when some actors' careers begin to fade, they'll do just about anything to stay in the limelight, including appearing in eyelash-growing commercials and starring in short-lived TV shows," continues the post. "But Brooke, did you really want the world to remember you as a 'fur pimp' who stares agog at rows of animal skins?"

    Ouch. It's a jungle out there. And definitely not the lipstick variety, either.
