According to some metric that isn’t immediately clear, Hunger Games actor Woody Harrelson and The Help star Jessica Chastain have been named PETA‘s Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2012, beating out 200 of their famous vegetarian peers for the maybe-kinda prestigious title! Yaaaaaay sexy vegetarians.
While Chastain lives a vegan lifestyle to avoid contributing to animal cruelty (the hyperlink in the PETA website makes it clear that she’s referring to factory farms), Harrelson revealed that his thirty-year commitment to veganism is pretty much due to vanity:
“I was on a bus and some girl sees me blowing my nose, I had acne all over my face, which I’d had for years and years. And she’s like: ‘Hey, you’re lactose intolerant. If you quit dairy, all these symptoms you got will be gone in three days.’ I was like 24. And I was like, No way. But three days later: gone.”
(Okay, he was also a struggling actor at the time, and no famous actor ever has acne. Still, one can imagine Harrelson actually saying that block quote.)
The runner-up vegetarian celebrities who apparently aren’t sexy enough include Natalie Portman (!), Olivia Wilde (!!!), Pamela Anderson (!!!!!!!!!!), and Questlove (THAT’S IT! This competition is obviously fraudulent!)
