PETA Europe’s “Sexiest Vegetarian,” Leona Lewis, proved why she deserved her crown when she rescued a rabbit from a life on the streets—a life that was bound to end on someone’s dinner plate.
While out and about in L.A. this week, Leona noticed a homeless man with a tethered rabbit. When she asked the man what his plans for the rabbit were, he admitted that he might eat the bunny. Um … come again?! As a vegetarian and a diehard animal defender, Leona struck a deal with the man: She gave him $100 to buy proper food, and he gave up the rabbit.
Now, Melrose (the rabbit was named after the street he was found on) is living it up in the “Bleeding Love” superstar’s posh L.A. pad. Jealous much?
A friend of Ms. Lewis said, “She didn’t think life on a lead was any way for a rabbit to live—then when he said he was going to eat it she knew she had to save it.” Swoon. If only all celebrities had that kind of “Spirit.”
