The documentary ‘Forks Over Knives’ is having one heck of an impact! First Russell Brand went vegan. Then, Ozzy Osbourne. Carrie Ann Inaba went vegetarian. Now, actress Eliza Dushku is jumping into the world of plant based foods.

The former Dollhouse star tweeted, “That’s it! We watched #ForksOverKnives & are going for a plant-based diet- that doc is astounding! Animal products no bien, homies #watchdoc.”

Giving farm animals and her health the gift of a veg diet this holiday season isn’t the only good deed Dushku is doing. As we reported a few days ago, the soon-to-be 31 year old star is raising funds for the organization THARCE-Gulu for her birthday.

Check out ‘Forks Over Knives’ for yourself. Can you resist the film that has turned so many stars veg?

    This is a joke right? The same girl that bragged about bow hunting deer and elk now cares about animals. These actors, with the exception of a few, just tell people what they want to hear. http://www.starpulse.com/news/

      People change. The world depends on it. If someone makes an honest commitment to a positive change we should all support that.

      Oh No. I can only hope people change too. There's always hope. I am an ethical vegan now, but did eat meat at one point in life. I'm proof change is possible.

    I'd seen the Crowdrise Video and Love it. But my girl E is a little bit too thin. When you can see rib and sternum bones through skin not good! Going Vegan…?

    Health is only one of so many reasons to try a plant based diet. The environmental impacts alone of the meat and dairy industries were enough for me to make the change 10 months ago and I have never felt better or more in line with my personal values and beliefs. Everyone must follow their own path but I really admire people who are open to new information and not afraid of change. Congrats, Eliza…wishes of health and happiness to you!
