FUR-FREE ZONE Thanks to the growing band of international brands pledging to remove animal fur from their collections and stores, it looks like the tide is turning on the fur industry.

It may seem as though the Californian native exploded out of nowhere with an Oscar-winning performance in 2015’s Room but there’s a good chance you’ve watched something with Brie in it before she became a household name.
