Russell Brand Goes Vegan

Actor Russell Brand has gone vegan after seeing the documentary Forks Over Knives.

Actor-comedian Russell Brand tweeted Sunday that he is now embracing a vegan lifestyle.

In his tweet, the actor also said “...goodbye eggs, hello Ellen,” in reference to talk-show host Ellen Degeneres, an outspoken vegan.
