Too sexy for your skirt (steak)?

Yesterday, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) announced their annual Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities.

Russell Brand squashed the competition and was named the sexiest male vegetarian, while Kristen Wiig, from the summer box-office hit "Bridesmaids," beet out the rest of the plant-eating starlets to win the female title.

PETA has been holding the contest since 2001 - and past winners include the likes of Shania Twain, Tobey Maguire and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

However we, being the equal opportunists that we are, feel the need to beef up the competition.

So,  in coalition with the other division of PETA (People Eating Tasty Animals), we'd like to solicit your male and female NOM-inees for the Sexiest Omnivore Alive in the comment section below.

PS: There are rumors of a lamb crown to perch atop the head of the victors.

    Yeah, I clicked on the link thinking "wow they're actually doing something in the media about people who eat meat." Most people do eat meat, so I thought this wouldn't be a "already know the answer" article. Then I read it and find out it's another vegetarian article – which I have nothing against, it just gets old.

    Then I realized they're telling us to nominate the sexiest omnivores, so hmm.. gotta think about it. Lil wayne is surely in the top 2.

    So Russel Brand is a vegan. Who knew?
    It does support my longstanding belief that Katy Perry is mentally a vegetable.

    Russell Brand proves my point that there are no healthy vegetarians. he looks like death on a cracker. human bodies are designed to be omnivorous. we need meat, in moderation, to be healthy. otherwise, we would have a functioning appendix and our eyes would be on the sides of our heads, like most other herbivores. think deer and cows!

  8. Say What

    On main page you see – Who is the sexiest celeb omnivore? Then you get to an article about PETA's Sexiest Vegetarians! Grade school kids studying Dinosaurs learn Omnivores eat both plants and animals. Maybe it should be Sexiest Herbivores. LOL

      yep came came here to say that as well. Omnivores eat plants and animals. Herbivores eat plants. I think I am done with CNN. Too many dumb@$$ editors/writers on their staff.

        I thought so too, but at the bottom they say for us to nominate the omnivores.

    Further proof that eatocracy "articles" are written by morons. All article (or more accurately, garbage) contributors to eatocracy need to DIAF. The sooner the better. If you've already spawned, please kill your offspring before you do so to try to add some chlorine to the gene pool. Perhaps people need to find you, give you a thousand paper cuts and pour lemon juice in them. And hot sauce into the eyes.

    Oh wait....this wasn't a "meativore" thing, was it?......

    I hereby withdraw my nomination.....

    I'd like to nominate myself. I eat meat with every meal. Even snacks. No joke. Canadian bacon & eggs this morning. Two "Five Guys" double bacon cheeseburgers for lunch. Pulled lamb shoulder, smoked brisket, and baby back ribs for dinner. I even saved a few ribs for tonight's late night snack. I win. PS my cholesterol is 210, and I'm 52, 165. And I smoke like a chimney, and drink like a fish. I win, no?

      We have a winner right here!

      I personally down 2+ pounds of meat (any species) daily.

    Hmmm... How about those actors who played the 'vegetarian' vampires in the Twilight movies? They sure liked their bear and venison, didn't they? Girls seem to find the Edward guy kinda cute.

    Russell Brand sexy?? Ugh. Pasty and goofy yes, sexy no! Well, maybe to another vegan/vegetarian.

    Hands down, Jessica Alba. It's not meat she's eating in this clip, but I can totally empathize with the kid!!

    Adriana Lima and... I can't think of a male one.
    Adriana Lima was the first pretty person I could think of. Tyson Beckford is an omnivore, right?

    I think it's safe to say- most of the most attractive, healthy people are omnivores.

      I agree! I expect better from Eatocracy. That was an uncalled for acronym. Offensive to me, actually. Whatever.
      As for the sexiest, I'd have to go with Johnny Depp, or Joaquim Phoenix (he's weird but hot, and is actually a vegan).
      For women, Megan Fox, and for vegetarian celeb, past winner Carrie Underwood.

        PETA (People Eating Tasty Animals) is an organization already founded to counter PETA. Here's their website:

        You are truly a self-entitled idiot if that acronym actually bothered you. Get a grip.

      People for the Eating of Tasty Animals is far from offensive. It is someone looking to be offended by the innocuous that would find "it" offensive.

  20. Truth

    PETA are out of their collective vegan mind...Given that both Chrissie Hynde and Maggie Q are outspoken vegans, I don't think Kristen Wiig should even be mentioned. And Russel Brand is a liberal stooge, so that should disqualify him for pretty much anything.

    June 29, 2011 at 2:13 pm |
    • leftcoastblue

      A really asinine comment for so many reasons:

      Chrissie Hynde is - how to put it - aging. And none too well from the latest photos I've seen. Kristen Wiig is beautiful and very smart. Perhaps not as lovely as Maggie Q, but how many people even know who she is?

      Russell Brand is disqualified because he's "a liberal stooge"?! What has politics to do with this?

      (BTW, your love for Chrissie seems to have survived the fact that she, too, is a liberal! Perhaps you've forgotten her outspoken criticisms of that idiot George W. Bush?)

      I could go on, but I grow tired contemplating your inanity.

    Does the term "sexiest" in this case refer to a person's physical aesthetics in the eyes of others; or the amount one person can consume in one sitting? ;)
