I’m all for PETA and vegetarianism, but I think all the soy has impaired their judgment. Because they’ve just named Russell Brand sexiest vegetarian alive. Then again, PETA loves animals, and Russell Brand looks like a sick horse.
Along with SNL’s Kristen Wiig, Brand has won PETA’s annual contest for the sexiest vegetarian celebrities. The comedians beat out Natalie Portman, Jaoquin Pheonix, Oliva Wilde, and Anne Hathaway.
It was actually the public that chose the two celebs as “sexiest vegetarian celebrities”, and something tells me it had less to do with looks and more to do with their devotion to a meatless diet.
Brand has been a vegetarian since the age of fourteen. During an interview on Life! With Regis and Kelly, when Kelly Ripa asked if he took fish oil, Brand said:
“I'm vegetarian. I think it's cruel to squeeze oil out of a fish… Cause they're lovely little guys, aren't they?" He then added: "You shouldn't eat animals; it's mean to them!"
Kristen Wiig attributes her lean physique to yoga and running, but also adds: “I’m a vegetarian. I eat a lot of tofu and soy.”
Natalie Portman, who has likened eating meat to rape, recently admitted she veered from her vegan diet.
“I was listening to my body to have eggs and dairy and that sort of stuff. I know there are people who do stay vegan, but I think you have to just be careful.”
Aside from animal cruelty, a lot of people choose a vegetarian lifestyle for the health benefits. Speaking of sexy, Hollyscoop recently talked to Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima about her diet plans. Lima told us:
“Right now I’m kind of trying to eat everything, everything healthy. Plenty of fruits, vegetable, salads. I am really trying hard to cut meat, I already cut read meat. I don’t eat red meat. My goal is to cut the fish and chicken.”
Keep it up, Adriana. No doubt you'll make next year's list!
