James Gandolfini Stays Fat For Tony Soprano Role
He told Esquire magazine: "I should exercise, but I'm too old for that s**t. I lost 30lbs to play my character in The Mexican, but people don't take to skinny mafia men, and I don't feel right when I'm thin. I was voted best-looking kid in high school but, as you can see, things changed. I used to say I was a 260lb Woody Allen. You can make that 295lb now."
Despite being happy with the success he has achieved in The Sopranos, Gandolfini admits he gets tired of playing the same part.
He said: "I can only take so much of Tony Soprano. I like the guy, but he takes up nine months of my year, every year, and that's not really me. I'm more of a soft guy."
