TheDailyBeast: Stars Who Gained Weight for Roles

5 of 10

Russell Crowe, 'Body of Lies' (63 lbs.)

In order to play a CIA agent who’s let himself go in Ridley Scott’s 2008 espionage film "Body of Lies," Russell Crowe gained a whopping 63 pounds, doing away once and for all with his toned, Maximus physique in "Gladiator." Crowe said he delighted in his weight gain, telling Extra, “I'll have that cheeseburger for breakfast, thank you!” However, the Aussie didn’t turn to booze as a way of gaining weight because of his kids. “There are a whole lot of things I don't do anymore because it affects my level of patience,” said Crowe. “I don't want to be in that place where I'm exasperated with these beautiful children."
