Doncaster, Yorkshire – What do Doncaster resident Paul Mollitt and Bill Clinton, Alicia Silverstone, Natalie Portman and Joaquin Phoenix have in common? They are all sizzlingly sexy vegans and vegetarians! PETA is now on a mission to find sexy but not-quite-world-famous counterparts to the celebrity vegetarians. Paul has beaten out hundreds of entrants from across Europe to become one of eight female finalists in PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian contest.

Sixteen years ago, Paul’s experience growing up next to a farm led him to swear off meat. “I would spend time with the animals, making friends with them, only to be horrified when I eventually realised they were killed for the food on my plate”, he explains. Now, when the talented musician and actor isn’t performing on the West End or touring with shows like Mamma Mia, Fame and Starlight Express, he is a foster guardian for homeless cats.

“On average, vegetarians are healthier and have more energy than meat-eaters – and that makes them sexier too”, says PETA Special Projects Coordinator Abi Izzard. “One look at our radiant line-up of compassionate, sexy vegetarian finalists and it’s clear that they’re all winners.”

People can vote for their favourite contestants to let PETA know who they think PETA should choose as the two winners – one male and one female. As well as the finalists’ popularity with voters, in picking the winners PETA will also consider their commitment to the animal rights cause and, of course, how hot they are! The winners – who will each receive a bundle of prizes from some of the UK’s top ethical companies, such as The Throw Company, Vintage Roots, The Redwood Wholefood Company, Bulldog and Bourgeois Bohème – will be announced on 24 September.
