Tia Mowry, best know for her roles on the hit TV series "Sister, Sister" and the reality show "Tia and Tamera," is wearing nothing but vegetables for a new PETA ad promoting veganism. 

The 34-year-old dropped all animal products as a New Year's resolution, crediting Alicia Silverstone's book "The Kind Diet" with the transition. Unfortunately, when Mowry plugged her new lifestyle on Twitter, she encountered an unexpected backlash. 

"I became a vegan and I was getting bullied on Twitter about it," she says in a PETA interview. "I wanted to become a voice for my community. … I wanted to educate my culture about the benefits of becoming vegan."
"There's a stigma about being vegan," she adds. "Some people say it doesn't taste great. Don't knock it until you try it! It's so incredibly good! Going vegan, I feel great!"
