Being in the public eye must be tough for celebrities (but hey, that´s why they´re paid HUGE sums of money, right? It goes with the territory.)
Here we list celebrities who couldn´t even exercise the most basic of disciplines – what food they put in their mouth, and as a result totally let themselves go…From Fit to Fat!
Matt Damon is the world’s most bankable movie star – Hollywood execs have crunched the numbers and Damon is No1 – meaning if you cast him in a movie it will definitely make huge profits.
The star has been voted the world’s hottest man several times, but as you can see from our picture, when he’s not playing an action hero Damon likes to let it all hang out and pile on the weight!
Fortunately for Matt Damon, he can lose the weight easily (unlike the rest of us!) – this is a man who has it all!
France’s 2nd most famous export behind wine and French cheese, Depardieu has appeared in numerous blockbuster movies and is a household name in his native France.
As you can see from the picture, Depardieu has never really been a looker and his weight gain hasn’t made him look any better! We suppose that he doesn’t particularly care though as he continues to act on screen and has been linked to numerous beautiful women worldwide.
After Francois Hollande was elected in 2012 and promptly enacted tax hikes on the wealthy elite of the French population, Depardieu fled to Russia to escape the strangling tax regime of his homeland.
Keely Shaye Smith
The real Mrs Bond, Keely Shaye Smith has been married to Pierce Brosnan since, well forever. Despite blowing up in size and weight, Pierce has proven he’s a real gentleman by sticking Keely despite her massive weight gain.
News reports in 2016 demonstrate the Brosnan is just as smitten with Keely as the day they met 25 years ago. As rare as it is in these times with divorce rates worldwide nearing 50%, this could be a case of true love…
Perhaps most well known for his 2 year marriage to Britney Spears, the formerly handsome rapper, model and singer has since declined rapidly since the breakup (whilst Britney has got herself back into shape).
He’s since disappeared from view after the marriage breakup, and having managed to wrangle $20,000 from Mrs Spears for child support, he appears to be set for life and has decided to let himself go. How charming!
Famous for winning American Idol in 2002, Kelly Clarkson went on to release an album which hit the No1 best selling US single in 2002. Her first album, Thankful, was double platinum certified in 2003 and went on to reach the top 10 in various countries worldwide.
She released several follow up albums during the 2000s, all of which went on to great commercial success. Clearly a talented lady!
Since 2010, Kelly has let herself go a little and has had substantial weight gain, as the photo shows, though it is not having any impact on her career which continues to go from strength to strength.
A very dramatic weight gain transformation for the unfortunate Kirstie Alley, as shown by our photo. Formerly a beauty queen, Kirstie seemingly doesn’t care anymore and has blown up in weight.
The acting roles have dried up, but we will always have a fond place in our hearts for the once beautiful Cheers actress.
Keanu is a bit of an enigma since he hit our screens 25 years ago with Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure. He regularly features on the Top 100 hottest men list so naturally it was a bit of a surprise to see him overweight and podgy in this picture in late 2016.
However he’s lost the weight again now for his starring role in the new John Wick movies, and aside from his foray into overweight terrority, the man never seems to age! Long may he continue….
An up and coming star who’se still only young, Jared has let himself go recently, burying his gorgeous features beneath a generous layer of fat. His problems started when he had to gain 64 pounds for a film role, and as we all know the weight is difficult to shift!
He suffered from Gout as a result, and we hope he finds a suitable diet soon and gets back to his former glory.
Since his role in the hit movie Tarzan and The Mummy, it seemed that a new talent had arrived in Hollywood. He made a slew of hit movies in the early 2000s, but since 2010 his roles have all but dried up.
Misfortune followed for Fraser in 2011 as he divorced from his wife of 5 years, who demanded alimony payments of $900,000 per year. Fraser contested this, arguing that since his acting work had dried up he was unable to make the payments.
He’s gained a lot of weight since and it seems that his personal difficulties have made him to turn to food – we can only hope that he straightens himself out and returns to the big screen soon.
The former supermodel seems to have let herself go a little since her heyday in the late late 90s to mid 2000s. Now that she no longer needs to strut the catwalk and look great for the cameras, it would seem Tyra has reached her hand out for a few too many pies and bottles of red wine.
We suspect she doesn’t care all that much though – with a net worth of $90 million and a string of awards to her name, including TIME magazine’s most influential people, she’s had an amazing life. She still young at 43 with a glittering future in front of her.
The former heavyweight champion of the world now lives up to his name as heavyweight, and has piled on the pounds in recent years now that he longer needs the discipline of boxing training.
But let’s be honest, when you have Tyson’s history as a ferocious hitter with one of the hardest punches in history, would we dare say that to his face? Never!
The former Disney star has recently revealed she has battled with her “body image” ever since she was a teen star and weighed only 98 pounds! At that time she tells us she had all sorts of health issues, including cramped hands because her body lacked the nutrition it needed.
Her weight has also fluctuated massively over the years, and at only 5″2, it shows on her more than most girls. But seriously, if your entire career depends on what you look like, it can´t be THAT hard to just eat a sensible diet, no?
John Travolta is a truly patriotic American. He loves eating hamburgers….A LOT, as we can see from his weight fluctuations over the years.
Still, it didn´t seem to stop him shooting back into the media spotlight when he filmed Pulp Fiction at well over 200 lbs.
Travolta is still overweight in 2015 but seems happy with it, his career is still going (and he has the “cool” factor back)..Plus he is still married to the gorgeous Kelly Preston, so it seems he is doing something right…
Jessica Simpson notoriously piled on 70 pounds during her pregnancy, and blamed the gain on her husband Eric Johnson. She obviously experienced food cravings during the pregnancy which she acted upon, and her husband didn´t say a word! Apparently he liked the new look Jessica.
Since the birth of her child she has dropped the weight again and is now back to her slim, beautiful original image.
Laurence´s heyday seems long ago now, when he played Morpheus in the smash hit movie The Matrix. He was a trim and fit figure in those days, but now looks much puffier and heavier.
As with other male celebrities though, this doesn´t seem to have impacted his movie career too much – check his appearance as Perry White in the recent big movie Man Of Steel as an example.
We hope his puffy appearance isn´t something more serious than normal ageing and weight gain.
Making women swoon the world over with his scene chewing, alpha male performance in 300, Gerard Butler’s physique was the very definition of the word “ripped”.
However as you can see in our Gerard Butler fat pic, he had considerable weight gain after his career defining performance in 300.
Gerard Butler Weight Gain
He had to undergo one of the most intense celebrity workouts of all time to get in shape for the part, so it´s no wonder that there was some backlash after the movie was complete.
Nevertheless, the reaction to his flabby physique convinced him to get back to the gym again, and we are pleased to report he´s back in great shape again (though nothing like his 300 days).
Whatever happened to Britney! She exploded onto the scene as a fresh faced but very attractive teen , with her smash hit “baby one more time” but around 2007 things started to go horribly wrong for her, with weight gain (as you can see), and hooking up with entirely the wrong kind of partner.
Now 33, Britney has shown remarkable character and turned it all around : she´s back in shape, making smash hit albums again and is no longer dating total losers.
Well done indeed, Miss Spears.
Mariah Carey, the queen of pop. She´s had more awards and sold more albums than any other female pop star, ever. Can you imagine living life under that kind of spotlight?
Mariah has always been prone to weight fluctuations and at it´s worst the diva was almost unrecognisable from her former curvy and hot image. However Mariah is a fighter and hard worker, and has been disciplined after the breakup of her marriage and is once again in tip top shape.
As with Britney Spears, Mariah has shown amazing character and we salute her, just as we do Britney.
One of the biggest stars in the world, Russel Crowe is famous for his ever changing physique. He reached his peak when filming Gladiator and was admired and coveted by women the world over.
Now aged 51 and looking a little more “jolly” than he used to, he´s still a major box office draw and seems perfectly happy with his weight. We suspect it´s nowhere near as much of an issue for male celebs as it is for the females.
Lisa Marie Presley
Daughter of possibly the most famous rock star ever to have lived, Lisa Marie Presley has had an interesting life. She’s been married 4 times, including to the late Michael Jackson and the actor Nicholas Cage.
She launched a rock career later in life, but never reached the heights that her father did (then again, no one has!)
She’s relaxed and settled down later in life, and now has 2 children. Unlike children of hugely famous stars, Lisa has seemingly kept her head screwed on and has managed to live a relatively normal life.
Here we see her later in life having got a little overweight – but she seems happy in her own skin so we assume she’s not bothered by the extra weight at all…
Kathleen Turner was one of Hollywoods hottest female stars during the 80s and early 90s, starring in smash hits such as Body Heat, Romancing The Stone and Crimes Of Passion.
She won two Golden Globe awards and was nominated for an academy award.
As she hit her forties the acting roles dried up. Tragically, she suffered rhemotoid athritis during the early 90s, which scuppered her career. At its worst, the disease restricted her movements to the extent that she could barely turn her head or walk, and she was told she would end up in a wheelchair.
She drank alchohol excessively to numb the pain and her looks and weight suffered as a result.
However there is a happy ending to this story. Advances in medical science during the 2000s forced her arthritis into remission, and she regained full control of her movements. She also resumed her acting career, though playing different roles than she used to. We are happy to report that she managed to beat her afflication; she is clearly a very brave, strong woman!
Former girlfriend of the tragic rock icon Kurt Cobain, Courtney’s life has been a rollercoaster and “interesting” to say the least. She’s had a rock career that spans four decades and in late 2017 is still going strong!
Famous for her explicit and confrontational lyrics and her ill fated marriage to Kurt Cobain, Courtney now has a hybrid rock and acting careeer. She had a part in the hugely popular Sons Of Anarchy TV series.
She’s added a little weight over the years but we are happy to report her music is as interesting as ever and she continues to draw major attention! Rock on Courtney!
Kelly Le Brock
Kelly Le Brock is most well known for her portrayal of the “perfect woman” in the smash hit film Weird Science (1985). Aged 25 she was a vision of etheral beauty on the screen, and was no doubt the No1 fantasy of many young men during the late 80s.
She also starred in Hard To Kill alongside her husband at the time, Steven Seagal (he is also in our list!)
Now 57, she’s aged a little and added a few pounds in weight as our picture shows. She no longer appears on TV or the big screen, but has launched a successful business selling homeopathic remedies.
Bet you’re surprised to see him on this list! We’re used to seeing Ryan looking terrific and in shape, causing womens hearts to beat faster all over the world..However Gosling did have a brief foray into the land of porky pies and added quite a bit of weight as a result as our picture shows.
Ryan is of course an A List star right now, at the peak of his career, so he cannot let inconvenient weight gain get in the way.
We are happy to report in 2017 Ryan is back to his fighting best and looking as sharp as ever. Expect to see him hitting movie screens very soon!
The pop star who has sold over 43 million worldwide singles, P!nk’c career has gone from strength to strength. Unfortunately it would seem she’s not so concerned about her waistline anymore and she’s been noted to have balooned in size as a result.
She’s still an awesome talent though, and has inspired a new generation of pop stars to push the envelope of their artistic talent.
The Welsh pop star has always been a little portly and has frequently mentioned that it doesn’t bother her in the slightest. With singles sales of over 100 million, she is one of the best selling pop stars of all time – so it’s easy to see why a few extra pounds don’t bother her.
Adele had her first child in 2012 and has been in a happy relationship with charity entrepreneur Simon Konecki since 2011.
The multiple award winning actress is famed for her acting skills and beauty, reaching a peak when she starred in the mega smash hit Titanic opposite Leonardo Di Caprio. Who can forget the stunning love scenes between these two beautiful people?
At 41 she’s put on weight now and has lost some of her lumenescent beauty. Her acting roles have somewhat tailed off as well, a typical pattern in Hollywood with the next gorgeous young thing waiting in the wings to replace their older counterparts. A sad situation indeed because she’s an enormous talent.
Famous mostly for her striking voice combined with her shocking, naughty music videos, Christina is only 34 and still a huge star, appearing in the news headlines with clockwork regularity.
Her weight has been up and down like a yo yo over the years, so we never know what to expect from her : the thin sexy temptress, or the tired, overweight Diva.
At least she keeps us guessing!
Star of the hit movie Swingers and The Lost World : Jurassic Park, Vince Vaughn still appears on our screens regularly in 2016 despite packing on the pounds. Standing at 6″5 inches tall, Vaughn carries the weight well however and his more portly appearance doesn’t seem to be affecting his box office success.
Vince is a family man and married in 2010, and now has 2 young daughters. He has a keen interest in politics and supports Libertarian candidates Ron and Rand Paul in the 2012 and 2016 US elections respectively.
The hunky actor, famous for his intense on screen presence has which made women weak at the knees has packed on the pounds in the last 10 years. Whilst he still retains some of the charisma that made him famous, his film roles have slowed to a trickle since his massive weight gain.
He’s recently turned to political commentary, playing Donald Trump in Saturday Night Live in an attempt to influence to US election of 2016. Since Trump won the election it would seem his efforts were in vain however.
Seagal burst onto the movie scene as a lower energy kind of acting hero, using Akido – a different form of fighting style than his predecessors. Tangling his opponents into knots and using their energy against them, his 6″4 frame, great looks and masterful fighting style made him a women’s favourite all across the world.
Unfortunately he’s had a fall from grace due to his massive weight gain, and though he can still twist his opponents into knots with his martial arts skills, he’s become a little too overweight to carry off action hero status.
The wildman of rock, world famous for his high energy performances is another victim to the weight gain scourge. Axl still tours and sings, but his performances have been a little more sedate of late, due to the excess 60 lbs of weight he carries with him.
The proceeds from most of his recent performances have all gone to charity, so it would seem that Axl has a heart as big as his appetite – we salute you, Axl Rose!
Val Kilmer, hot shot actor and women’s favourite right through the 80s and 90s with hit movies such as The Doors, Heat, and Top gun became famous for his edgy performances and great masculine looks.
Unfortunately the Iceman had a fall from grace from the 2000s onwards and discovered the delights of eating burgers and pies and ballooned in size, adding inches to his weight and burying his great features in a mountain of fat.
We hope he hops on a diet soon, gets in shape and returns to the amazing performances that we have come to expect from him.
The former friends star was well known for his chiseled good looks as well as his acerbic wit. Since leaving Friends however, Perry has had a steep decline in his acting career, and it looks like he’s let himself go by eating a few too many pies.
We hope he straightens himself out with a proper diet to lose the flab : he’s a talented actor and is sorely missed from our screens…
Hayley Joel Osmant
Child star of the smash hit The Sixth Sense, Osmant faded from our screen since his first role and hasn’t been on the big screen since. He has appeared in numerous TV series, but it seems that as an adult aged 28 he’s having less luck on the big screen than a child actor.
He’s added a lot of weight since appearing as a skinny teenager but he’s still young – and with his acting talent we hope he loses the weight and appears on the big screen again soon – he’s a talented and magnetic presence on screen.
