Comedians Kristen Wiig and Russell Brand take the titles of PETA’s sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2011. “Bridesmaids” star Wiig credits vegetarianism with helping her stay in shape, recently telling Women’s Health that tofu and soy are big parts of her diet. Brand, who had a vegan wedding and says he’s been a vegetarian since he was 14, tells PETA:"You shouldn't eat animals, it's mean to them." (Hmmm: We wonder who wins the throwdown when Brand's wife Katy Perry gets a craving for her professed loves – the double double at In-N-Out Burger and the crispy beef at Mr. Chow’s.)
Wiig and Brand won the honor in a poll of thousands of PETA members, beating out celebs like Olivia Wilde (who won last year), Natalie Portman (who fell off the vegan wagon for a heavenly slice of cake), Joaquin Phoenix and Anne Hathaway.
