PETA has named their sexiest vegetarians of the year and vegans Woody Harrelson and Jessica Chastain are at the top of the list. The pair both gave up eating meat long ago, although they did it for different reasons.

Originally, Harrelson says he gave up meat three decades ago while he was trying to make it as an actor in New York.

Chastain (who starred in "The Help") has been a vegetarian for 15 years and a vegan for five. She said she was moved to change her diet because she was concerned about animal cruelty: "I don't want to torture anything. It's about trying to live a life where I'm not contributing to the cruelty in the world. While I am on this planet, I want everyone I meet to know that I am grateful they are here."
