Amanda Beard Images Wallpapers and Biography

Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard is no stranger to taking her clothes off for the camera. She's appeared in Playboy, FHM and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

The swimmer is nude again, but this time for a good cause. Beard appears in a nude advertisement in support of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

Beard, who is in Beijing to compete in the 200-meter breaststroke, she claimed gold in the event at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, unveiled the ad today outside the Athlete's Village.

In what some are calling the first athlete "protest" of the Beijing Olympics, Beard displayed a poster of the ad and talked about how she is anti-animal cruelty.

"The Olympics are a great forum for me to use to get my message out," Beard told the Associated Press. "It's a great thing for me to do. I'm saying not to kill innocent animals, there's nothing negative that goes into that."

Although it was a peaceful protest, which involved Beard spreading PETA's message to the world, it must be noted that China is the world's top exporter of fur. The organization claims the country's farms practice cruelty towards animals that are often killed brutally, allegedly by electrocution, poison and some are skinned alive.

Beard's ad, which features her nude in front of the American flag, with her left hand draped over her breasts and right hand on her hip, is meant to signify Beard's and PETA's belief that wearing nothing at all is better than wearing fur.

She also said she was hopeful that things will change in the country and that the ad might strike a chord in others around the world. It's possible that it might. The people at PETA are genius, nothing catches your attention like a naked celebrity.

The swimmer is not the only famous face to strip down for PETA actresses Alicia Silverstone and Eva Mendes , designers Sadie Frost and Kimora Lee Simmons, Girl Next Door Holly Madison and others have posed nude for the anti-fur ads.
