If these two aren’t hot enough already, now Oscar-winning actor Jared Leto and Academy Award nominee Ellen Page are being crowned as PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2014.

As first reported by E! News, these two extremely talented individuals and animals lovers are being honored for their meat-free ways.

They had some tough competition, as the “Dallas Buyers Club” actor beat Joaquin Phoenix, Samuel L. Jackson, Peter Dinklage and Woody Harrelson. As for the ladies, Page took the title over Ariana Grande, Jessica Paré, Laura Prepon and Sarah Silverman.

For 20 years, Leto has been respecting animals. “I’m pretty healthy so I think that helps a lot. I’ve been that way for a long time—20 solid years of eating vegetarian/vegan and taking care of myself,” he told British GQ. He’s even called dairy “disgusting,” which is why he stays away from it.

Page also hasn’t shied away from voicing her meat-free opinion, “Why are vegans made fun of while the inhumane factory farming process regards animals and the natural world merely as commodities to be exploited for profit?”

Congrats to these very sexy vegans!
