Happy fur-free holidays

Vegetarian and animal lover Christina Applegate is encouraging holiday shoppers not to buy fur for the holidays in a revealing PETA e-card. The Samantha Who star tells PETA that her house "has been basically a zoo" since childhood. "Everything I have has dog hair on it, and that's just the way it is," says the actress, who poses on the card wearing red gloves with green trim - and little else. Applegate says she turned vegetarian during lunch one day on the set of her former sitcom Married with Children when she was a teenager. "[I realized] I can't eat something that has been alive," she said. "So I stopped, and that was it. That was the last time."
