Could be because it’s almost the first day of summer. Nah, it’s definitely PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2011 contest. Voting has begun to help us narrow down the 100 male and female nominees to our top five in each group who make our little veggie-loving hearts skip a beet beat.
So, which hunk of Bocacake gets your vote? Bill Clinton or a Beatle? Joaquin’s sexy smile or Jared Leto and those baby blues? Could it be a bi-coastal competition of funny man Russell Brand against easy-on-the-eyes Casey Affleck?
And which veggie vixen will walk away with the top prize? Will it be the battle of the A-team, Aimee and Anne? Or could it all come down to the Kristens – Wiig and Bell? Maybe the inventor of sexy, Pamela Anderson, will stage a coup?
Let us know who you think we should name the finalists! This year, for the first time, voting will take place on Twitter using the hash tag #sexyvegceleb, but you can also use the voting page. Let us know who you think we should pick by June 17 and stay tuned for the swoon-worthy finalists.

You've heard that you can look to the stars for direction, and when it comes to compassion for animals, these stars are illuminating guides:
Scream 4 had audiences gasping and jumping in their seats this weekend. But if the audience had seen PETA's "scream" movie, they would really be terrified. Our undercover video of rabbits as they are killed for their fur shows the animals as they scream while their skin is peeled off their bodies.
Scream 4 star and vegetarian Aimee Teegarden spoke out against the cruelty of fur in her ad for PETA.
Please join Aimee in making sure that the only killing you condone is the fake, fun, movie variety, and always run screaming away from fur.
Any Friday Night Lights fans in the house? Well, even if you’re not, you’ll love this PSA peta2 just released with anti-fur crusader Aimee Teegarden and her dog Gizmo. Way to go Aimee!
You can watch a video of Aimee at the photo shoot and enter to win a T-shirt signed by her here.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
