Amitabh Bachchan - Asia's Sexiest Vegetarian

His vegetarianism has won him a new status - Bollywood mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan is now 'Asia's Sexiest Vegetarian Man' for 2008.
A poll by animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has chosen Bachchan or Big B for the top male slot and Hong Kong's singer-actress Faye Wong as Asia's Sexiest Vegetarian Woman for this year.
While 65-year-old Bachchan has dominated the silver screen in India for nearly four decades, Wong -- known as the "diva of Asia" -- has graced the covers of leading lifestyle magazines like 'Vogue', 'Elle' and 'Marie Claire', in addition to having a successful musical career.
Runners-up in the competition included Taiwanese stage artist Barbie Xu, Hong Kong's popular actress Maggie Q and Cantopop singer and actress Stephy Tang, according to a statement posted on the PETA Asia-Pacific portal.
"Going vegetarian is the best thing you can do for animals, the Earth and your health. Plus, there's no easier way stay slim and sexy -- and Faye and Amitabh are living proof," PETA South Asia Director Jason Baker told the media in Hong Kong Wednesday.
Outside the Asian continent, pop star Leona Lewis, singer Chris Martin and TV show host Russell Brand were among the celebrities who were voted as sexiest veggies.
