Liam Hemsworth & Jhene Aiko top Sexy Vegan Celebrities list
Liam Hemsworth and Jhene Aiko have been crowned PETA's Sexiest Vegan Celebrities of 2016.
The Hunger Games star, who has rekindled his romance with last year's (16) Sexiest Vegan Miley Cyrus, beat out the likes of hip hop heavyweights Waka Flocka Flame and RZA and Ben Affleck's actor/director brother Casey, while singer/songwriter Jhene topped Ellie Goulding, Michelle Pfeiffer, Bellamy Young, and Rooney Mara.
Liam previously credited his The Hunger Games castmate Woody Harrelson, another former Sexiest Vegan Celebrity poll winner, for turning him onto the delights of a meat and dairy-free lifestyle, and now insists he could never go back to fleshy foods, milk and cheese.
"After all the information I gathered about the mistreatment of animals, I couldn't continue to eat meat," the actor said. "There are no negatives to eating like this. I feel nothing but positive, mentally and physically. I love it."
Meanwhile, Jhene credits vegan meals with giving her the energy to perform at a high level on tour and in the studio: "Having grown up with a love for and a connection to all animals as well as having been educated on the health benefits of a plant-based lifestyle, it made sense for me to go vegan," she tells PETA. "I have more energy, my skin looks better, and, as an extra bonus, I'm happier!"
Other past winners of PETA's annual contest include actors Ellen Page, Jared Leto, Kristen Bell, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Russell Brand, Natalie Portman, Tobey Maguire, and Alicia Silverstone, and singers Carrie Underwood, Shania Twain, Leona Lewis, and Andre 3000.
