Bill Clinton's Vegan Sex Appeal, Pamela Anderson Strips for Charity, and More
PETA is still months away from naming its Sexiest Vegetarian Alive winners for 2011, but one newly-vegan celebrity is gaining early buzz as a front runner: Bill Clinton. The former president, who cut out animal products to improve his health and lose weight before daughter Chelsea's vegan wedding in July, has said that his diet is based on beans, legumes, vegetables, fruit, and almond milk. PETA's Jaime Zalac told U.S. News that "Clinton will surely be a popular nominee in next year's contest" -- but he'll have to beat plenty of competition to dethrone the current winners, Bob Harper and Olivia Wilde.

Though actress Michelle Rodriguez announced in August that she planned to join the crew of the Sea Shepherd -- the anti-whaling vessel that's the star of Planet Green's "Whale Wars" -- she said this week that her time on board will have to be rescheduled due to her film commitments. But the actress, who just won the Eco Maverick Award from Opportunity Green, remains passionate about the cause: She'll travel to Australia to bid the crew bon voyage on its next trip, and told reporters at the Opportunity Green conference that she plans to join the organization when she can commit to the full three-month trip.
