3 Actors Who Dropped Major Weight for a Movie

Recently actor Matt Damon went from hunky to husky for his role in the film Suburbicon. While he embraced the dad bod for the box office, there are many actors who go through a different kind of stunning transformations for the silver screen. Today on the Buzz List Teresa Strasser looks at a few actors who dropped a huge load of weight for a movie.

3.  Matthew McConaughey - Dallas Buyers Club

The already-lean actor reportedly dropped around 38 pounds and according to one interview he did it by eating just 2 egg whites, a piece of chicken and 2 diet cokes per day for about 6 months. It paid off because he won Best Actor for that role.

2.  Chris Pratt - Guardians of the Galaxy

He went from chunky to chiseled for the hit Marvel movie, reportedly shedding about 60 pounds in 6 months through diet and exercise.

1.  Christian Bale - The Machinist

He reportedly lost around 63 pounds in 4 months by eating just a can of tuna or an apple per day. He might have gone a bit too far because the movie ended up being a huge flop.
