Gallery: 10 Hollywood Celebrities Who Gained Major Weight for a Movie Role


Last week we gave you 10 celebrities who lost serious weight for a movie role, which, by the way, is a practice we don’t condone. Today, we’re doing the opposite – showcasing ten Hollywood movie stars who’ve gained serious weight for a movie role (or, who are we kidding, in the hopes of nabbing an Oscar, which several of them did). Losing or gaining, we’re not into dramatic weight shifts simply for the sake of a paycheck and royalties, no matter how hefty. It’s simply not healthy, even under the care of a professional.

Smoking, Overeating, Not Sleeping or Exercising? 4 Health Do-Over Solutions


Smokes, burgers, no exercise, not enough sleep. While you can’t exactly undo the damage you so deftly did yesterday, you can lessen some of the negative effects. Here are four ways to kick your bad habits and avoid a total health hangover. We call do-overs.

You had the double-bacon-cheeseburger-with-fries special.

One burger every now and then isn’t going to do any damage. Not much, anyway. In a study at the University of Miami, men and women who ate just one high-fat meal had an 81% increase in artery-clogging triglycerides and damage to blood vessels a few hours later.
