Matt Bomer lost a LOT of weight for his role as a man with AIDS in The Normal Heart!
And while that choice will likely win him acclaim from the audience and critics, there's someone he might have had a harder time explaining it to- his young kids!
So how did the normally buff Bomer explain to his children that daddy was just going to LOOK sickly for a movie? He says:
"I prepared them really well. I sat and I spoke to a professional on how to talk to them about this so it's a real testament to kids' imaginations because if you've read these Flat Stanley books where he's as flat as a piece of paper, I think that's what they expected. So when I came back and I'd already lost like, thirty pounds, they're like, 'Oh, I thought you were going to be skinnier than that!' I was like 'What do you want from me?' They're all boys so they were really great about it. They never seemed to have a concern."
OMG! Flat Matt Bomer! That's hilarious! Did they think his clothes would fall right off of him? We'd buy THAT book! LOLz!
But srsly, we're glad they didn't get scared! Now when he goes SUPER buff for Magic Mike XL, they'll already be prepared!
