Rapid Weight Gain & Loss Gave Jared Leto Gout
Leto's representative confirms that the gout was "caused by the dramatic weight loss for a movie role." The condition is caused by the accumulation of uric acid crystals in the joints.
The actor packed on 62 pounds for his role as John Lennon's killer Mark David Chapman in Chapter 27. He was required to shift the weight quickly for subsequent roles.
