In the latest PETA campaign against cruelty to animals, 19 year old Christian Serratos from Twillight shows off her naked self in a dark forest, vowing that she would rather go naked than wear fur. This ad is odd to me for many reasons. Really, there are probably other instances of animal cruelty and exploitation that need attention: the thousands of animals killed each day owing to deforestation, puppy mills, abuse of pets, etc. Is fur really that big of a deal in the United States? I think not. So, why the naked girl?

The Hollywood writer Peter Biskind wryly observed the lengths to which George Lucas went to expunge the merest hint of sex from his Star Wars universe. It was always difficult not to be amused, then, that with the Sarlacc — the sharp-toothed, monstrously gaping mouth that threatens to swallow various characters in Return of the Jedi — Lucas subconsciously created "a nightmarishly explicit image of threatening female sexuality", more succinctly described as a "vagina dentata". And so to Twilight.
Serratos was born in Pasadena, California  and raised in Burbank, California. Her father is a set construction worker of Italian descent. Now, I just do it for fun. Serratos played Suzie Crabgrass in the Nickelodeon series Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide , which debuted in and ended in after three seasons.
