7 Significant Body Transformations For Movies

Body Transformations

Talk about commitment to a profession. Some would say what these guys did is flat out dumb. Take this quote for example:  All of Damon’s organs had been strained by his weight loss and it would take years for his metabolism to return to normal. And the good news? “The good news,” the doctor explained, “is that your heart didn’t shrink.”

But others would argue that these actors are just committed to their craft. Either way, it’s pretty impressive how these guys managed to transform their bodies to adjust to their characters for these movies.  Here are 7 significant body transformations in movies

Christian Bale in The Machinist

63 pounds. That’s what it took for Bale to land the lead role in The Machinist. I mean he definitely wins the prize here. He was somewhere in the 120’s at 6 ft tall. His normal weight is between 185-195. Wow.

Robert Deniro in Raging Bull

Body Transformations

Let’s take it in reverse. “Give me that bag of chips!” Deniro put on an astounding 50 lbs to play the older Jake LaMotta. It’s amazing to see how ripped he is in the beginning and how chunky he gets towards the end.

Sylvester Stallone in Copland

Stallone packed on 40 lbs for this one. And word is he didn’t even use steroids! Just good old fashioned ice cream. Way to go pal.

Ed Norton in American History X

Has anyone ever seen Norton this jacked? I didn’t think so. He was a house in this flick. What I don’t understand is why he didn’t stay that way. If you look like that, why not stay looking ridiculously in shape? Anyone interested in the American X workout? Word is he did this in 3 months. Anyone seen my horse syringe?

Tom Hanks in Cast Away

Hanks lost over 50 lbs to play the stranded ex Fed Ex Employee. Pretty impressive. Wilson! Give me a Hamburger! Wilson!

James Spader in Supernova

People are probably wondering what the hell Supernova is anyway. I’ll tell you what it is. It’s Lou Diamond Phillips, Peter Facinelli and James Spader on a ship doing steroids. When the hell was James Spader EVER huge like this? This one blew me away.

Matt Damon in Courage Under Fire

Body Transformations

Damon lost 40 lbs for this role as a drugged up Gulf War Veteran. What’s notable is that he did this without the help of a nutritionist.
