TheDailyBeast: Stars Who Gained Weight for Roles

4 of 10

Jared Leto, Chapter 27 (67 lbs.)

He ain’t Jordan Catalano no more. To play John Lennon’s pudgy assassin, Mark David Chapman, in the 2007 film "Chapter 27," the usually svelte Jared Leto gained an impressive 67 pounds through a diet that was just, well, gross. “[I did it by] eating everything you think you're not supposed to—pizza, pasta, ice cream, but my little trick was I would take pints of chocolate Häagen Dazs and put them in the microwave and drink them,” Leto told Starpulse. But the grossest part? “The sick thing is, I would actually pour olive oil and soy sauce into the mixture as well—to get me bloated even more,” said Leto. Sadly, it was mostly for naught—the film grossed only $56,215 in North America, and received mostly negative reviews.
