Russell Crowe sheds 23 kg for film
Actor Russell Crowe, who piled on weight for his film The Nice Guys, has now lost around 23 kg for his next role.
“I was (121.5 kg) the first week of August last year. I did a movie called The Nice Guys, so I wanted to be the physical juxtaposition of Ryan Gosling,” Crowe said on a radio show on Thursday, reports aceshowbiz.com. “I’m clawing my way back from that, so I’m about (98 kg) at the moment,” he added.
Back in 2000, the Oscar-winning actor showed off a ripped physique for his role in Gladiator. He had to eat six to eight protein-heavy meals a day to bulk up at that time. Just a year before, he was required to lose weight quickly.
