Longtime vegetarian Russell Brand has just declared over Twitter that he’s now full-on vegan – and it appears the documentary “Forks over Knives” was all the tipping point the comedian needed.

“I’m now vegan, goodbye eggs, hello Ellen,” the 36-year-old tweeted, sending out a shout-out to vegan Ellen DeGeneres. Brand then went on to RT a message that wife Katy Perry sent out: “Me & the Mr. just watched “Forks Over Knives”. You can get it on Netflix!”

For those that have yet to see this fantastic doc, the film take a hard look at rejecting animal-based and processed foods as a means to control common diseases and ailments. “The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. Throughout the film, cameras follow “reality patients” who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes,” the official site reads. “Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a whole foods plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat their ailments – while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed.”

Check out a trailer below – and congrats to Brand, PETA’s 2011 Sexiest Celebrity Vegetarian, for making the leap! How about it Katy?
