Put down that burger and listen up! PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2010 have been crowned. According to the company's site, this year’s top honors go to actress Olivia Wilde, and "The Biggest Loser" trainer Bob Harper.
Olivia, who stars in the Fox series "House," swears by her vegan lifestyle. "Beyond my desire to boycott the torture factories, I am also way happier when I eat a plant based diet, and I feel about a thousand times more energetic," she explained.
Bob Harper doesn’t just get his clients in shape, he takes his own health and fitness just as seriously. Since going vegan, he says the health benefits are endless. "I enjoy living a plant-based diet because it makes me feel clear headed and strong, not to mention my genetically high cholesterol dropped more than 100 points," he said on the site. "That was all the motivation I needed."
These sexy celebs are not the only ones getting the recognition they deserve for saving the lives of animals. Last year, American Idol alum Kellie Pickler and actor Milo Ventimiglia reigned supreme as PETA’s top picks. In 2008, Red Hot Chili Pepper Anthony Kiedis and singer Leona Lewis were named the Sexiest Vegetarians Alive.
The list of celebs taking the vegan pledge is impressive. They’re saving the lives of animals, improving their own health and looking great doing it! Congrats to all!
