I know I’m not alone in saying, “Ugh,Valentine’s Day,” along with engaging in some grumbling and serious eye-rolling, when it comes to February 14—but it’s not all bad!
I mean, sure, those candy hearts are actually kind of gross, and everyone parading around with flowers and teddy bears is mildly vomit-inducing, but it’s also an excuse to buy vegan chocolates and get crafty with homemade Valentine’s Day cards!
If you’re flying solo this Valentine’s Day, feel free to join me in worshiping at the altar of these total babes, who happen to be doing totally awesome things for animals:
“Hollywood A-List” Valentine: Joaquin Phoenix
If seeing Joaquin’s performance in Her didn’t make you swoon, knowing that the longtime vegan is so dedicated to animals that he refuses to wear leather or any animal products—even when filming a movie—should do the trick.
“Can We Be BFFs?” Girl Crush Valentine: Olivia Munn
“Makes Good Girls Go Bad” Rock Star Valentine: Gabe Saporta
This needs no explanation. Let’s just say that as a former Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity winner, Mr. Saporta is holding it down.
“Hottie With a Body” Valentine: Rocsi Diaz
Living proof that going vegetarian does a body good!
“This Charming Man” Emo Icon Valentine: Morrissey
There’s a reason why Moz has a near cult-like following after a decades-long music career. He’s an icon for misfits and a hero for the many animals he has saved every year by not eating them.
