Giant on the move

Chicks love vegetarians

November 27, 2009

Want to be sexy? Then don’t eat meat, says Taiwanese star Barbie Hsu.


“Vegetarians make chicks happy” is a new People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) campaign fronted by Hsu, better known in the Chinese speaking world as “Big S”.

PETA hope the actress, who shot to fame in the hit Taiwanese soap opera “Meteor Garden”, will appeal to younger Chinese.


The beauty and the beast will appear in magazines and on websites in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong over the next few weeks.
