Here is the full article from PETA:
Leona Lewis and Anthony Kiedis Voted World’s
Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2008
Kiedis recently went vegan after learning about the worldwide depletion of fish in the oceans and after a doctor recommended a healthy vegan diet for his son. “Soon after I [went vegan] I saw some documentary footage of what happens in the factory farming of cows …. It sealed the deal,” says Kiedis, who documented his earlier hard-partying ways in his autobiography, Scar Tissue.
By contrast, Lewis—whose album Spirit made her the first British artist to top the U.S. Billboard chart with a debut album—has a squeaky clean history. And when it comes to the dirty business of animal abuse, she’s a woman of action. “I am vegetarian so I don’t have clothes, shoes or bags made from leather or suede or any animal products. … I’m on a mission,” she says.
Celebrities’ reasons for keeping animals off their plates are as diverse and inspiring as their talents—from avoiding the inexcusable cruelty to animals on factory farms and in slaughterhouses to improving their own health and helping the environment by not contributing to factory-farm pollution.
