Tens of thousands of animal lovers voted the pair into the top spots as part of an annual search for veggie vamps and vixens on Web site PETA.org.
The odd couple came out tops after a month-long People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) poll, beating Forgetting Sarah Marshall co-stars Kristen Bell and Russell Brand and actors Emily Deschanel, Milo Ventimiglia, Casey Affleck, Abbie Cornish and Hayden Panettiere.
A vegetarian since the 1980s, Kiedis recently went vegan after learning about the worldwide depletion of fish in the oceans and when his baby’s doctor recommended a healthy vegan diet for the child.
He recently told PETA bosses, “Soon after I went vegan, I saw some documentary footage of what happens in the factory farming of cows… It sealed the deal.”
Veggie queen Lewis adds, “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. I am totally against animal cruelty.”
Previous winners of PETA’s World’s Sexiest Vegetarians contest include Carrie Underwood, Prince, Natalie Portman, Shania Twain, Chris Martin, Andre 3000, Tobey Maguire, Josh Hartnett and Alicia Silverstone.
