Singer Morrissey has branded veteran actress Joan Collins "sad" for buying leather handbags.
The vegetarian singer, who is an outspoken campaigner for animal rights, met up with the former Dynasty star during a trip to his native U.K. earlier this month (Mar12).
He was delighted by the chance meeting with the Hollywood star - until he realised she was carrying a leather purse.
In a statement, the former The Smiths frontman writes, "On returning to London I came face to face with the too-beautiful Joan Collins, more alive and more radiant than ever. Alas, on her back she carried an electrocuted animal. Sad."
