The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals recognized Good Charlotte's Benji and Joel Madden, Fall Out Boy's Andy Hurley, Outkast's Andre 3000, Avril Lavigne and more to show that vegetarians are sexy.
The animal-rights organization unveiled the nominees for its sixth annual World's Sexiest Vegetarian contest this week, with Anne Hathaway, Pamela Anderson, Joss Stone, Joaquin Phoenix, Tobey Maguire, Common and members of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, AFI and New Found Glory also up for the honor. Online voting at www.GoVeg.com will remain open through May 21, and the king and queen of the meat-free prom will receive a plaque commemorating the honor.
PETA started its Sexist Vegetarian contest in 2001 to praise those in the public eye that have adopted the meat-free lifestyle, honoring "American Idol" winner Carrie Underwood, Natalie Portman and Coldplay's Chris Martin in the past. Nominees are not all members of PETA, though the organization is certainly no stranger to Hollywood (see "PETA Adds Black Eyed Peas, Pharrell To A-List Supporters" and "Pink Wants KFC's Alleged Animal Cruelty To Kick The Bucket").
