This just in: Jessica Chastain and Woody Harrelson have officially been named PETA’s 2012 Sexiest Vegetarians.

First off, congrats to both of these wonderful celebs! They beat out quite a few amazing actors and actresses – who all embrace vegan and vegetarian diets – like Lea Michele, Emily Deschanel, Paul McCartney and Russell Simmons.

Chastain changed her diet about 15 years ago, and does whatever it takes to remain faithful to her meat-free cause. While filming “The Help,” she gained around 15 pounds with soy and vegan fried chicken.

“The scene where I was eating fried chicken, they made me vegan fried chicken. It probably [didn’t taste as good] as fried chicken. They did an amazing job,” she revealed. “They took a turkey dog and tofurkey and battered it, and deep fried it. I haven’t had meat in so long. I’ve been vegan for five years and vegetarian for 15 years, so if I had had meat, I wouldn’t have been able to do the scene. They all thought I was just chowing down.”

Regarding Harrelson’s diet, he transitioned to veganism about 25 years ago.

“I used to eat burgers and steak, and I would just be knocked out afterward; I had to give it up,” he told Maxim. “The first thing was dairy. I was about 24 years old and I had tons of acne and mucus. I met some random girl on a bus who told me to quit dairy and all those symptoms would go away three days later. By God she was right.”

Olivia Wilde, Kristen Bell and Milo Ventimiglia are a few other celebs who have also received the title. Last year, Russell Brand and Kristen Wiig achieved the honor.
