Vegan Actors Named PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarians

Jessica Chastain and Woody Harrelson have been named PETA’s 2012 Sexiest Vegetarians.

Actors Jessica Chastain and Woody Harrelson have been dubbed People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ Sexiest Vegetarians of 2012. The longtime vegans—Harrelson adopted a plant-based diet in his early 20s, and Chastain has been vegan for five years—join the ranks of fellow vegan celebs Olivia Wilde and Russell Brand, who received the honor in 2010 and 2011, respectively. This year has been a big year for both recipients, with Harrelson’s blockbuster flick The Hunger Games dominating the box office, and Chastain earning an Oscar nomination for her work in The Help. PETA praised the actors’ dedication to their diets, saying, “Jessica and Woody’s combined 45 years of cruelty-free eating have saved at least 4,500 animals from being neglected, genetically manipulated … and killed in gruesome and violent ways.”
