Have you already forgotten the Sexiest Man Alive? Is this year’s sexy swimsuit cover model a distant memory? You’re in luck. Today, two new celebrity sex symbols were crowned — by PETA. The group — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals — announced their picks for Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2013. Who won the beetcake crowns? Congrats, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard.

The vegan couple beat out 100 vegetarian celebrities, including Jenna Dewan Tatum (aka Mrs. Sexiest Man Alive),Tia Mowry, Anne Hathaway, former President Bill Clinton, Peter Dinklage, and Forest Whitaker.
Why veganism? “I had a hard time disassociating the animals I cuddled with – dogs and cats, for example – from the animals on my plate, and I never really cared for the taste of meat. I always loved my Brussels sprouts!” says Bell, who made the transition from vegetarian to vegan many years ago and influenced Shepard to give up meat. “I have fewer body aches. My skin looks better. I’m never starving, and I never need to ride the couch feeling completely full and disgusting,” says Shepard.
