Meet Aya Sugimoto, the latest actress to go nude for PETA. Read her biography, see photos and a video of her below.
Aya Sugimoto is the first Japanese actress to pose nude for PETA. She was chosen for the photo shoot because of her strong commitment to animal rights. In her photos she holds a sign strategically over her breasts that reads, ‘Fur? I’d rather go naked’. And many are glad that she does.
She says she is glad to be a part of the ‘No Fur’ movement and to have been chosen to pose naked to save animals. She says she hopes to influence fashion in Japan so that people will see they can be fashionable and still care about animal rights.

Her career has been multifaceted and a great success in Japan. She is known for her J-Pop career and as a television actress celebrity. In 2003 she became the spokeswoman for a candy called Bust Up Drops which was billed as a dietary supplement that increases a woman’s breast size. The then 34 year old stated, “My boobs are so big, it’s hard to maintain the right shape… Being my age, I knew I had to do something about it. And that’s when I started using B-Up Drops.”
