For Immediate Release:
November 6, 2014
Beijing — Actors Maggie Q and Wu Xiubo and musicians Faye Wong and Khalil Fong are among the Asian contestants who are in the running for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia’s annual Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity contest on PETAAsiaPacific.com. The contest coincides with World Vegan Month, which is celebrated each November.
Other top contenders include former U.S. President Bill Clinton, actor Natalie Portman, and Vietnamese singing sensation Hà Okio.
Why are more and more trendsetters choosing to go meat-free? Healthy vegetarian meals can help reduce the risk of suffering from heart disease, cancer, and strokes. Plus, meat-eaters are nine times more likely to be obese than vegans are, making a vegetarian diet one of the easiest ways to stay slim and sexy. “I feel better, I have more energy on and off the set, and I have the satisfaction of knowing that I’m doing something to help stop animal suffering,” says leading nominee Maggie Q.
“When you look at the gorgeous celebrities in this year’s contest, it’s clear that eating vegetarian meals helps keep you beautiful inside and out,” says PETA Asia Vice President of International Operations Jason Baker. “Going vegetarian is the best thing that you can do for animals, the Earth, and yourself. Plus, everyone knows that there’s nothing sexier than someone who exudes both passion and compassion.”
The Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity contest runs through November 25. PETA will ultimately decide the winners—one male and one female—based on several factors, including the number of votes received.
