Columbia, S.C. – Hollywood is full of sexy vegan A-listers over 50, from Woody Harrelson and Michelle Pfeiffer to Bill Clinton and Wendy Williams (who just lost 50 pounds on a vegan diet)—but Columbia’s no slouch, either. South Carolina’s capital may be home to PETA’s 2015 Sexiest Vegan Over 50. That’s because 54-year-old Sharon Wright is one of 10 finalists in the annual contest sponsored by PETA Prime—a resource for baby boomers who want to live a healthy, humane, and rewarding life.
“Vegans tend to be slim, healthy, and energetic, so it’s no surprise that older vegans avoid the high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes that plague so many baby boomers,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Each one of PETA’s finalists is sparkling with vitality and compassion for others, and there’s nothing sexier than that.”
As the co-owner and chef of Columbia’s Good Life Café, Wright’s passion is sharing healthy vegan food with her friends, family (including her two granddaughters), and community. She credits vegan eating with giving her the endurance and stamina she needs not only on the job but also as an avid hiker and jogger who’s currently training for a marathon. And that’s not the only health benefit she has reaped—she’s frequently complimented for her beautiful, glowing skin.
Visitors to PETAPrime.org can see photos of all 10 finalists and cast their votes through November 13. Two winners (one male and one female) will be announced on November 23. PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—will select the winners based on several factors, including vote count. Each winner will receive a PETA photo shoot in Los Angeles and a selection of goodies from the PETA Catalog. See the full contest details here.
