Christina Ricci's Fur U-turn: She'll never Wear Fur Again!

Christina Ricci learned her lesson loud and clear that she even promised to never wear fur again. The actress, who was named by PETA as one of the worst dressed celebrities of 2006 because of her penchant for animal hide, has vowed to be fur free in the future.

Christina, 26, has now written a letter to PETA apologising for her actions, which read: "After being named on the PETA worst dressed list for wearing fur, I have been deluged with angry and disappointed fans.

"I never meant to hurt nor anger anyone with my insensitivity. For what it is worth I have received the message loud and clear and will not be wearing fur in the future. I apologise for my offensive actions."

A PETA representative says Christina has now been removed from the worst dressed list. They added: "We have sent her a basket of cruelty-free goodies to thank her for her compassionate decision."

PETA recently criticised Christina for wearing reindeer fur on the cover of W magazine.

The animal rights group said: "Ricci recently posed for a magazine cover wearing fur from slaughtered reindeer. At least she is not into fur hats - imagine how many more pelts it would take to cover that forehead."
