Leona Lewis and Anthony Kiedis have been named the Sexiest Vegetarians of 2008.
The 'Bleeding Love' singer and the Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman received the most votes in an online poll of fellow vegetarians conducted by animal rights group PETA.
Leona, who hasn't eaten meat since she was 12, said: "I am totally against animal cruelty. I am vegetarian so I don't have clothes, shoes, or bags made from leather or suede or any animal products. I'm on a mission."
Leona, 23, and Anthony, 45, trumped fellow vegetarians Casey Affleck, Hayden Panettiere, Milo Ventimiglia, Abbie Cornish and Kristen Bell in claiming the titles.
Anthony, who is a vegan, revealed disturbing footage of factory cows inspired him to quit eating animal products.
He said: "I saw some documentary footage of what happens in the factory farming of cows. It sealed the deal."
Country singer Carrie Underwood and 'The Tonight Show' star Kevin Eubanks were last year's winners.
Previous winners include Shania Twain, Natalie Portman, Chris Martin, Tobey Maguire and Alicia Silverstone.
The online awards were launched by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) in 2000.
