Our “Vegetarian Vampire” poll a couple weeks back must have inspired MTV to bring up the issue in a recent interview with Twlight star Christian Serratos. The actress plays Angela — the best friend of the main female lead Bella who falls in love with a vampire named Edward. Got that?

Anyways, Edward is considered a ‘veggie’ vamp because he does not feast on humans; choosing instead to go after forest critters. Of the more than 180 people who bravely chose an answer in our poll, 38% decided to go human — with the other 62% split evenly between veggie (forest critters) and vegan (blood banks). Here’s what Serratos had to say on the issue:

“I’d have to be a vegetarian vampire. I’m a vegetarian now, so it goes hand in hand, right?”

Boo-ya!

Not content to leave the insanity of dwelling on vampire vegetarians alone, MTV continued their line of questioning asking, “As a vegetarian, when you read the books, do you see that as a good message?”

Serratos: “You know, I never really thought that far into it, (Editor’s note: We don’t blame you.) but definitely. I mean, if I were a vampire, I definitely wouldn’t be after the humans. That’s a good message. If you’re ever a vampire, don’t eat humans.”

Folks — the poll is still open. So if you would like to not eat humans — or if you are a vampire looking for a little respect — hit it here.
