Alan Cumming has gone from vegetarian to vegan, and credits another vegan celebrity for the inspiration.

According to Contactmusic, the actor has been a vegetarian since early 2010, but has made it his New Year’s resolution to remove all animal products from his diet in 2012. Cumming tweeted today, “That’s it. I was toying with going the whole hog to veganism and now I see Mike Tyson is the new Vegan posterboy! Sold! Get ye back, seitan!” Mike Tyson became a vegan in 2010.

Cumming isn’t the only celebrity to recently join team vegan. Stars are going veg in hopes of improving their health after watching the film Forks Over Knives, including Russell Brand, Eliza Dushku, and Ozzy Osbourne. In fact, there were so many celebrity vegan moments this year, we created a list of the top ten. Non-celebs are joining in too, with reports indicating that U.S. meat consumption will continue to decline.
