Los Angeles — Who will be named PETA's Sexiest Vegetarian
Celebrity of 2012? Will it be a longtime vegetarian such as Jessica
Chastain and Woody Harrelson, or
will newly vegan husband-and-wife team Ben Stiller and Christine
Taylor take top honors? PETA asks visitors to cast their votes at PETA.org
for the most sizzling man and woman out of a field of 100 of Hollywood's
Chastain's 15-year commitment to meat-free meals led her to
chow down on vegan fried chicken during one scene in The Help—a
tactic that the decades-long vegan Harrelson also adopted when he dined on
vegan faux Twinkies during Zombieland. Joining these vintage vegetarians
in the poll are Anne Hathaway, who has been moving toward a meat-free
diet since she was 12, and 2011's Sexiest Vegetarian, Russell Brand, who
went vegetarian at age 14 and writes that he won't eat fish "because it's
cruel to them, the lovely little things."
Among the finalists who more recently embraced meat-free
meals is Bill Clinton, who won PETA's 2010 Person of the Year Award for
opening up about how his vegan diet drastically improved his health—and who
recently inspired Michelle Pfeiffer to follow his example. They are
joined by Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor, who are going vegan with their
kids, and Meredith Vieira, who recently went vegan.
Other celebrities up for this year's title include Peter
Dinklage, Venus Williams, Diane Keaton, Michael Clarke
Duncan, Lea Michele, Jason Schwartzman, Ellen DeGeneres,
Portia de Rossi, and past winners Prince, Natalie Portman,
Leona Lewis, Tobey Maguire, Kristen Bell, Olivia Wilde,
and Kristen Wiig.
The contest runs through June 27
at 5 p.m. ET. Winners will be announced on June 28. For more information and to
cast your vote, please visit PETA.org.
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.
