Witherspoon gives up snake

(CNN)--Actress Reese Witherspoon is being hailed by PETA, for giving up her python purse.

The Oscar-winner was recently photographed carrying the 38-hundred dollar ChloA¬ bag, prompting the activist group to send Witherspoon a video on the exotic skins industry.

The video, narrated by her "Walk The Line" co-star Joaquin Phoenix, implored her to give up the pricey purse.

Witherspoon complied, telling PETA she's hung up the bag for good.

PETA says it hopes this serves as a reminder for consumers to buy mock-animal skin accessories.
