PETA has declared 2017 the Year of the Vegan Wonder Women in its annual Sexiest Vegan Celebrity contest, handing the title to Ruby Rose, Jenna Dewan Tatum, and Maggie Q in the contest’s first three-way, all-women win. Other contenders included Kate McKinnon, Colin Kaepernick, Swizz Beatz, Ricky Gervais, and Chloë Grace Moretz.
This year, Orange Is the New Black and John Wick: Chapter 2 star Rose—who previously called meat “revolting”—encouraged her 1.3 million Twitter followers to fight climate change by going vegan, writing, “We can be the change.” She also invited her 11.3 million Instagram followers to fall in love with her rescued dogs.
World of Dance host Tatum, who previously starred in a sexy vegan fashion campaign for PETA, told the Los Angeles Times last year, “I certainly encourage veganism, not just for our health, but for the environment and also for the ethical and moral reasons.”
Designated Survivor star Maggie Q hit the streets to stick up for animals this year, not only leading a PETA protest against Canada Goose’s coyote-fur coats but also coming out to support the Toronto woman who was arrested for giving water to dehydrated, slaughter-bound pigs. The actor previously starred as a nearly nude Mother Earth in a PETA ad that proclaimed, “Fight Climate Change With Diet Change.”
