Most extreme celebrity weight loss (PHOTO)
50 Cent was famously an incredibly buff gangster who has been shot a few times – even taking a bullet to his jaw. But after making millions from rapping (and his shares in Vitamin Water – fact) he began working on a movie career and a liquid-only diet combined with daily three-hour treadmill walks led to THIS. He lost FOUR stone to play a cancer stricken football player in Things Fall Apart.
It’s one of the most iconic images when you think of Hollywood stars who shed weight for a role. Christian Bale shrunk down to a breakable FOUR STONE. If you consider that 50 Cent lost a total of Christian’s entire body mass for his role – it makes it even more unbelievable. Christian had to bulk up soon after for Batman.
The beefy actor had lost more than three stone – a quarter of his body mass – in a few short months for his role as an AIDS sufferer in new movie Dallas Buyers Club. And, as the Oscar-winning Texas-born star now reveals, he achieved the extreme weight loss on little-to-no food – making him bad-tempered, not to mention ravenous. “It was tough going, I’m not going to lie,” admits the 43-year-old. “The dieting was pretty hardcore. I was losing 7lb every week.”
Mila Kunis is the sexiest women on the planet but STILL had to shape up for her role in Black Swan. She had to be as nimble and petite and full-time ballerinas. Reflecting on her thin figure, she said ‘Flat, flat, flat! There was no shape, no form, nothing, nothing.’
The same situation for Natalie Potrman who shed 20lbs for starring in the Oscar nominated movie. What made her look so drastic is that she was arguably slimline enough before losing weight.
Funny man Jonah Hill had to lose some of his extra baggage to shoot 21 Jump Street. His role of being an undercover police officer with the fit one from Step Up as his co-star meant he couldn't exactly get the part without slimming down somewhat.
Tom Hanks wore a little pair of pants to show off his slim physique in Castaway. He had to look like he's been stuck on a island for ages and it's fair to say the beard certainly helps.
Renee Zellweger is mostly famous for being Bridget Jones. We would love to drink wine, watch rom-com's and eat tubs and tubs AND TUBS of ice cream, and be able to call it work. Renee had to do this weight gain and loss TWICE as well. That's the pain of a sequel, unfortunately.
Sexy Charlize Theron was on a mission to lose the weight she gained for movie Monster in time for the Acadamy awards. She lost more than a stone in a month against doctors orders to look her best.
