Adorable Hollywood couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard were honored Friday with PETA’s annual title of sexiest vegetarian celebrities. But PETA might have wanted to double check their facts before making the proclamation cause Dax is currently a meat-eater.
The 32-year-old Veronica Mars is a longtime vegetarian, stating “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” in a PETA press release. She eventually changed to a vegan diet and her Parenthood partner did the same in 2012.
But Dax has fallen off the vegan wagon.
After hearing the news of the PETA honor he took to his Twitter to say “I’m really flattered to be named ‘Sexiest Vegetarian’ with Kristen Bell, but sadly I can’t accept in good conscience because I eat chicken.”
He added, “I was vegan for a year, but that ended 6 months ago. I aspire to be more like Kristen, but I’m not there yet.”
Looks like PETA is going to have to find another male celebrity vegetarian to bestow the title on!
