Forks Over Knives continues to change the way that America eats. Kristen Bell and fiancé Dax Shepard have both gone vegan after seeing it.

Another awesome Kristin—Kristin Chenoweth—is throwing her support behind her Glee costar Lea Michele’s campaign to get horse-drawn carriages out of New York City. Chenoweth tweeted her disgust at seeing the miserable horses and is asking the New York City Council to ban the carriages.

Anjelica Huston is taking a stand against horse-drawn carriages while working in New York.
