Helena Bonham Carter apparently has a major phobia of fish, but that didn’t stop her posing naked with a giant tuna for a good cause. The photo shoot is in support of the Blue Marine Foundation, which aims to create marine preserves to protect endangered species of marine life around the world.
Here’s what Helena had to say about the effort:
‘There is a new movement, spearheaded by the Blue Marine Foundation and others, encouraging the Government to invest in creating marine reserves — fish refuges really — where they are safe from the ravages of industrial-scale fishing and where they can regenerate,’ Helena says.
‘We all have a responsibility to try and return our world to the next generation in the state we inherited it in, not worse.
‘It would be a sad thing if in our dotage we’d be describing a tuna fish to our grandchildren like we do a dodo today.’
Well, that sounds like a pretty good campaign to me – not that I understand how posing nude with a giant tuna between your legs is going to further that cause… but what do I know? Pictures behind the cut – they’re a bit NSFW, obviously, so here ya go…
