Most celebrities will do just about anything for a role. Even things we would never intentionally do. For example, gaining a ton of weight. And these celebrities who gained weight for movie roles were real troopers. Because they truly committed to their characters. They felt that in order to perfect their role they had to drastically change their shape, and they totally sacrificed confidence and self-worth, but they definitely aced their roles.
Jared Leto, “Mark David Chapman”
Leto gave up his good looks, at least temporarily, to take on the role of John Lennon’s killer in “Chapter 27,” 2007. The extra 67 pounds he gained changed how he talked, walked, and laughed, and he had to go to the hospital after he started getting sick.
