Celebs Who Gained Weight For Movie Roles

December 7th, 2010 4:00pm EST
Matt Damon The Informant
Last week we listed some celebrities that lost weight for their movie roles. Now, let's take a look at the other side of the spectrum - stars that risked their figures for movie roles by packing on pounds.

Michelle Williams convinced the director of Blue Valentine that her character should weight more. She put on 15 pounds when she played the part. Her co-star Ryan Gosling gained 14.

Remember Matt Damon when he was fat? The heartthrob put 30 pounds of weight on his frame to play a doughy office worker in The Informant! He then shed it all as quickly as possible for fitter roles in Invic...

Lindsay Lohan
Dear Lindsay,

Well? What's next? The world is waiting. Remember that little rehab stint and the comeback that typically comes after it?

Everyone is rooting for you. We loved you in The Parent Trap - those freckles! The accent! Twins! We loved Mean Girls and the adorable-turned-bitchy Cady that you played. Everyone liked the Lindsay with boobs and red hair, and we really couldn't get enough. We couldn't wait to see what grown-up movie you would do next...

Then came A Prairie Home Companion, Just My Luck, Bobby, Chapter 27, Georgia Rule, and I Know Who Killed Me. To break...

Considering Sore Subject Matter of 'Chapter 27,' 'Why?' is Only Plausible Reaction

Chapter 27
(Hollowoodchicago.com) – As a contemporary of the John Lennon assassination in 1980 and an ardent admirer of the late Beatle, I had a hard time figuring out the reasons for making the film “Chapter 27”.

Over the years, it has been difficult if not impossible to forgive Mark David Chapman for his wasteful act of murdering Lennon. So why relive the agony through an oblique film exercise and reference to “The Catcher in the Rye,” which is the novel Chapman was reading when captured by police after the shooting?

Lindsay's new movie I Know Who Killed Me hits theaters today, but that's not what all the recent Li-Lo talk has been about this week. Apparently the young star has fallen off the wagon again and gotten herself into more trouble.

Early Tuesday morning Lindsay was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and possession of cocaine. She had recently finished a rehab stint at the Promises rehab center, the same place Britney Spears spent her rehab time. And if it's any indica...

'Chapter 27' Blasted By Sundance Viewer

John Lennon
Chapter 27 - the new film about John Lennon's assassination - has been branded an insult to the music legend's memory. J.P. Schaefer's movie - which depicts the former Beatles' murder in 1980 by deranged fan Mark David Chapman - premiered at the Sundance festival on Tuesday after allegedly being rejected by other film festivals.

Fox News reporter Roger Friedman saw the movie and has blasted Schaefer for tarnishing Lennon's memory. Friedman said: "J.P. Schaefer has managed to kill Lennon again. He's also made a boring, un-releasable movie that no one will ever see. Most of the audience ...
