Russell Brand and Kristen Wiig are the winners of PETA's annual contest for the sexiest vegetarian celebrities. The quirky comedians beat out other hot vegetarians including Natalie Portman, Joaquin Phoenix, Anne Hathaway and Olivia Wilde.
Brand, 36, has been a vegetarian since the age of 14. In one appearance on "Live With Regis and Kelly," the animal-loving funnyman made it clear that fish are not a part of his diet. When asked by Ripa, 40, if he took fish oil to stay sharp, he quipped, "I'm vegetarian. I think it's cruel to squeeze oil out of a fish. … 'Cause they're lovely little guys, aren't they?" He then added, "You shouldn't eat animals; it's mean to them."
Wiig, 37, credits her vegetarian diet for helping her stay fit. In an interview with Women's Health, the "Bridesmaids" star explained that she maintains a healthy lifestyle because she runs, does yoga and is a vegetarian: "I eat a lot of tofu and soy."
