Two people…well, one entity if you will. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard! The duo have had quite the year, welcoming their first child in March and now being the first couple to win the male and female divisions in PETA’s annual Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity contest.
It was a tough competition with Bell competing against other vegan moms like Jenna Dewan Tatum and Tia Mowry along with other celebrities including Anne Hathaway, Edie Falco and Portia de Rossi.
Shepard had the challenge going up against former US President Bill Clinton, Marco Antonio Regil, Peter Dinklage and Newark, New Jersey, Mayor Cory Booker, and more!
Bell and Shepard both shared their thoughts on becoming vegan. “I had a hard time disassociating the animals I cuddled with – dogs and cats, for example – from the animals on my plate, and I never really cared for the taste of meat. I always loved my Brussels sprouts!” Bell says.
“I have fewer body aches”, he says. “My skin looks better. I’m never starving, and I never need to ride the couch feeling completely full and disgusting.”
Previous winners of PETA US’ Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity contest include Woody Harrelson, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Russell Brand, Olivia Wilde, Carrie Underwood, Prince, Natalie Portman, Shania Twain, Leona Lewis, André 3000, Tobey Maguire and Alicia Silverstone.
Congrats you two!
