Is it just us or is EVERYONE losing crazy amounts of weight for roles, lately??
We JUST saw Neil Patrick Harris slim down for the latest Broadway production of Hedwig And The Angry Inch, and now Matt Bomer is revealing he shed some serious pounds for his role in The Normal Heart!
So how much weight are we talking about here? In a recent interview, he said:
"I stopped weighing myself after losing 35 pounds. I thought the number wasn't the important thing to focus on. This wasn't Biggest Loser."
35 pounds?!?!? That's a pretty big weight change!!
Matt also says he got a call from Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey, who knows a thing or two or fifty on losing weight for a role:
"He called me and walked me through what he did. It was very generous, but I took a slightly different path."
Matt says he's currently recovering from the extreme weight loss, which took him 3 months to achieve!
Have a Big Mac on us, big guy! You've earned it!
