ATAAC | Australian Teens Against Animal Cruelty - Sexiest Vegetarian Winners!
But some figures are more equal than others ... Abbie Cornish
believes all animals are equal.

Abbie Cornish believes all animals are equal.

Rising Hollywood star Abbie Cornish and musician Xavier Rudd have been crowned Australia's sexiest vegetarians for 2008.

Tens of thousands of people voted in the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) poll.

Cornish, who stars in the upcoming movie Stop Loss and is getting attention for her relationship with actor Ryan Phillippe, has been a vegetarian since she was 13.

She said she learned compassion for animals and about their personalities growing up on a farm in the NSW Hunter Valley.

"I was really puzzled by the idea that people could feel compassion for a dolphin but, at the same time, they were quite prepared to eat a cow or a pig," she said.

"It was confusing because I thought of all animals as equal".

Cornish beat stars including radio host Jackie O, singer turned actor Sophie Monk, musicians Missy Higgins and Vanessa Amorosi, and international celebrities like Natalie Portman.

Victorian singer Xavier Rudd took the title in the men's division, beating fellow musician John Butler and Australian Idol host Andrew G.

Rudd said he was turned off meat after seeing animals in a factory farm while on tour in California.

"When I realised how animals have to suffer in the meat industry, I decided never to eat meat again", he said.

"The industry's anonymity and the treatment of animals as worthless beings used only for production really annoyed me."

In the U.S.A the winners were:

Leona Lewis and Anthony Kiedis.

The Bleeding Love singer and the Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman received the most votes in an online poll of fellow vegetarians conducted by animal rights group Peta.

Leona, who hasn't eaten meat since she was 12, said: "I am totally against animal cruelty. 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."

Leona, 23, and Anthony, 45, trumped fellow vegetarians Casey Affleck, Hayden Panettiere, Milo Ventimiglia, Abbie Cornish and Kristen Bell in claiming the titles.

Anthony, who is a vegan, revealed disturbing footage of factory cows inspired him to quit eating animal products.

He said: "I saw some documentary footage of what happens in the factory farming of cows. It sealed the deal."

Country singer Carrie Underwood and The Tonight Show star Kevin Eubanks were last year's winners.

Previous winners include Shania Twain, Natalie Portman, Chris Martin, Tobey Maguire and Alicia Silverstone.

The online awards were launched by Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) in 2000.
