Celebrity Vegetarians: 50 Stars Who Won't Be Eating A Turkey Feast On Thanksgiving

As you sit down to enjoy your turkey meal this Thanksgiving, just know that dozens of celebrities will be noshing on stuffing, veggies and sweet potatoes instead.

Why, you may ask?

Well, they're vegetarians, vegans and animal activists who would much rather eat tofu than a juicy bird.

This year, PETA named Jessica Chastain and Woody Harrelson 2012's Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities.

"I don't want to torture anything," Chastain said in a press statement. "[I]t's about trying to live a life where I'm not contributing to the cruelty in the world … While I am on this planet, I want everyone I meet to know that I am grateful they are here."

Many stars agree with Chastain, including Tobey Maguire, Kristen Bell, Pamela Anderson, Paul McCartney, Russell Brand, Kate Winslet, Anne Hathaway and Brad Pitt.

So as you celebrate this holiday, check out 50 stars who will be eating a different kind of Thanksgiving feast today:
