June 27 (UPI) -- Looks like PETA mistook Dax Shepard for a vegetarian.

After topping the list of this year's sexiest vegetarians, alongside his fiance Kristen Bell, the 38-year-old actor took to Twitter to set the record straight.

"I'm really flattered to be named 'Sexiest Vegetarian' with @IMKristenBell, but sadly I can't accept in good conscience because I eat chicken," Shepard wrote Thursday.

"I was vegan for a year, but that ended 6 months ago. I aspire to be more like @IMKristenBell, but I'm not there yet," he added.

PETA took the news in stride, saying in a statement that the organization was glad he "aspired to be more like" his partner. They even offered to send him a "vegetarian starter kit."

"We're delighted to recognize Kristen Bell as our Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity," PETA said (via E! News).

She sets a wonderful example of kindness to animals and healthy living to her countless fans, including Dax! We love Dax, and we're glad to read that he's aspiring to be more like Kristen. We are here to help with recipes and our vegetarian starter kit, and we'll be sending the couple a delicious gift basket of Beyond Meat and Gardin veggie chicken products.
