The gorgeous pro dancer is the newest face of PETA — a non-profit organization focusing on animal rights.
“It’s basically making people aware of choosing cruelty-free products, which I didn’t realize animal testing was still happening, so I just want to make people aware,” Kym tells Life & Style about the campaign.
Even though the 36-year-old says she was “petrified” to go nude, she admits, “if it brings awareness to people and people become aware of what they’re putting on their faces — and what an animal has to go through for us to wear some mascara or hairspray — then it’s worth it.”
In the new ad, the Australian beauty shows off her toned dancers’ bod — strategically placing her hands and legs over her private areas. She also poses with an adorable white bunny.
“I love animals,” she tells Life & Style. “It’s something that I’m really passionate about.”
She joins famous faces like Khloé Kardashian, Olivia Munn, and co-dancer Karina Smirnoff, who have also stripped down for the cause.
