    Kristen Wiig and Russell BrandRussell Brand and Kristen Wiig have been named PETA's (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2011.

    On PETA's official website, comedians Brand and Wigg were said to have captured the hearts of many with their comedic charm and compassionate choices.

    Brand, who has been a vegetarian since age 14, told PETA, "You shouldn't eat animals, it's mean to them."

    UsMagazine.com is reporting that in an appearance on Live! With Regis and Kelly, the 36-year-old actor made it clear that fish was not a part of his diet.

    When asked by Ripa if he took fish oil to stay sharp, Brand replied, "I'm vegetarian. I think it's cruel to squeeze oil out of a fish... Cause they're lovely little guys, aren't they?"

    There are people who love the force of nature that is Gwyneth Paltrow -- working mom, actress, cookbook author, lifestyle guru, distributor of GOOP -- and there are those who absolutely hate the girl. The Oscar winner, 38, is here to deliver her theory on naysayers: folks are "pissed off" because she's driven and unafraid of change, while they're not. "It's easier to not change, not do something good for you, not work on your relationship, not make yourself a meal, not work out," she tells PopEater. "Everything in my life that's good is because I worked my ass off to get it and to maintain it."

    That life of hers is good indeed, and in our full chat, Mrs. Chris Martin reveals she's still "mulling over" a music career after a recent bout of hit-making, talks about her inspiration for writing the new cookbook 'My Father's Daughter,' and has a few laughs about recent rumors hitting the tabloids: 1. She hooked up with 'Glee's' Matthew Morrison, and 2. She's pulling an Oprah and starting a magazine.

    "Matthew's become a really good friend of mine," she admits. "It's funny, the press likes to write things. They say I'm starting a food magazine but it's like, the truth is I don't have time to get a blow dry, how am I going to start a food magazine?"

    The gorgeous Missouri native was in a giving mood during our afternoon rendezvous, so she listed her food intake for the entire day.

    By John Mitchell  Posted Apr 14th 2011 at 11:08 AM
    From her buzzed-about guest-starring role on 'Glee' to her new cookbook, 'My Father's Daughter,' Gwyneth Paltrow is all but inescapable these days.

    The 'Country Strong' actress, who recently landed a record deal, graces the latest cover of SELF magazine to talk about something she has become synonymous with: healthy living. She already extols the virtues of eating right and exercise on her lifestyle website GOOP, but with 'My Father's Daughter,' she's taking it a step further, providing readers with the essentials to a well-stocked pantry and sharing recipes meant to celebrate "family and togetherness."

    Asked if she is in the best shape of her life, Paltrow told SELF, "Yes. I never thought that I'd be considered to have a good body. I was bony up top and kind of dumpy on the bottom. But my trainer, Tracy Anderson, completely changed my legs, butt, arms and stomach. I feel better than ever, too."
