Bollywood actress Vidya Balan and former union minister of state for external affairs Shashi Tharoor have been voted as the hottest celebrity vegetarians in an online poll by animal rights organisation PETA.

Vidya and Tharoor beat out actors R. Madhavan and Lara Dutta to claim the title. They faced competition from Mallika Sherawat, Kareena Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Shahid Kapoor, and even international names like Natalie Portman and Bryan Adams.

'Vidya Balan and Shashi Tharoor embody many admirable qualities, but their commitment to a vegetarian diet that's as kind to animals and the earth as it is to their own health makes them true royalty in our book,' Poorva Joshipura, chief of People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India, said in a statement.

'All our nominees are winners because there's nothing more beautiful than a caring heart to go along with an attractive appearance,' she added.
