Maxim’s List Smolders With Sexy Animal Lovers

Published by PETA.

Maxim just released its “Hot 100” list, and apparently the editors understand the appeal of kindness toward animals. The list isn’t just a “who’s who” in hotness—it’s a “who’s who” in compassion too.

Number one on Maxim‘s list is Olivia Wilde, who always gets House fans’ pulses racing. While she plays a naughty doctor, she still knows how to play nice with animals. You guessed it, Maxim‘s number one is vegan!

Chan Marshall, aka Cat Power, gets her audiences purring with her sultry voice and gorgeous looks, but we’re happy as a kitty in catnip over the fact that she helped us promote spaying and neutering.

How much hotness can one woman dish up? Eva Mendes is the answer! Need more proof? Check out her sexy “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” ad. Eh, what’d I tell ya?

Stunning Charlize Theron is as compassionate as she is talented—just ask her dog.

Audrina Patridge’s sunny smile could light up Las Vegas—but it’s her heart (which has a gigantic soft spot for animals) that we’re interested in.

Millions idolize blonde beauty (and Sexiest Vegetarian contest winner) Carrie Underwood, and we can’t say we blame them.

Tricia Helfer’s luminous looks and love for animals are otherworldly.

The evidence is in: There’s no trace of a doubt that Roselyn Sanchez’s steamy anti-fur ad is muy bonita.

The reason we’re happy that ravishing Joanna Krupa graces magazines all over the newsstand? She refuses to compromise her values and never wears fur.

“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
