Jessica Chastain and Woody Harrelson Are PETA's 2012 Sexiest Vegetarians


The two Hollywood actors have given up dairy and animal products for years now, for two different reasons.

PETA has named the two celebrities that will hold the title of Sexiest Vegetarians this year. The animal rights organization picked Jessica Chastain and Woody Harrelson because their animal-free diet "combined 45 years of cruelty-free eating have saved at least 4,500 animals" from being killed.

Chastain went vegetarian 15 years ago and vegan 5 years ago. "I don't want to torture anything," she said. "It's about trying to live a life where I'm not contributing to the cruelty in the world. While I am on this planet, I want everyone I meet to know that I am grateful they are here."

Meanwhile, Harrelson found his inspiration from health problems he faced 25 years ago while he was a struggling actor. "I used to eat burgers and steak, and I would just be knocked out afterward; I had to give it up," the 50-year-old actor said. "The first thing was dairy. I was about 24 years old and I had tons of acne and mucus. I met some random girl on a bus who told me to quit dairy and all those symptoms would go away three days later. By God she was right."
