HOLLYWOOD- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), a non-for-profit organization, has named Avengers star Benedict Cumberbatch as most beautiful vegan of 2018.

'Selma' director Ava DuVernay was named "most beautiful female vegan" of 2018. She bagged the title leaving Thandie Newton, Sofia Sisniega and Ellen Pompeo behind.

PETA senior vice president Lisa Lange said: "Ava DuVernay and Benedict Cumberbatch are saving animals not only by going vegan, but also by sharing their commitment with the world. The vegan powerhouses behind 'Selma' and 'Doctor Strange' beautifully show what it means to be a compassionate star in 2018."
