Russell Brand Crowned PETA's Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity of 2011

Together with Kristen Wiig, the 'Rock of Ages' actor beat out the likes of Joaquin Phoenix, Natalie Portman, Olivia Wilde and Anne Hathaway in the annual contest by the animal rights organization.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) annually compiles a list for the Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities, and Russell Brand is taking the crown this year. Beating the likes of Joaquin Phoenix, Natalie Portman, Olivia Wilde and Anne Hathaway, the "Arthur" star shared the title with Kristen Wiig.

The 36-year-old husband of Katy Perry has been a vegetarian since the age of 14. While on "Live! With Regis and Kelly" recently, he explained to host Kelly Ripa that he does not even consume fish oil. "I'm vegetarian. I think it's cruel to squeeze oil out of a fish... Cause they're lovely little guys, aren't they? You shouldn't eat animals; it's mean to them!"

37-year-old Kristen, meanwhile, became a vegetarian to help her stay fit. The "Saturday Night Live" veteran, who recently stars in "Bridesmaids", spilled in an interview with Women's Health that she maintains a healthy lifestyle by eating a lot of tofu and soy in addition to running and doing yoga.

Last year, the title of Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities went to "The Biggest Loser" trainer Bob Harper and "Tron Legacy" beauty Olivia Wilde.
