True Fat Stories
Consider for a moment the resources available to celebrities to avoid getting fat. World-class doctors, nutritionists, personal trainers, life coaches, even personal chefs – all within checkbook reach. Then add the spending ability for home fitness equipment, expensive dietary foods/supplements, or build out private gym facilities (in Mark Wahlberg’s case, add a boxing ring). Here are a few cases of celebrities spending money to avoid gaining weight or looking fat.
Rihanna reportedly spends $840,000 a year to stay in shape, including $1,500 a day for a personal trainer and $800 a day for a private chef. She admits, “I need a trainer to motivate me.”
American producer, director, and actor Danny DeVito is well known for his short stature (his height is believed to 4 ft 9.5 in (1.46 m) but some sites like IMDB simply “round up” to 5 ft (1.52 m). Here we journey down a less traveled road – Danny DeVito’s weight.
1975: Danny’s first “big” role – One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
An undeniable classic. Danny plays a quiet, young, and squeezable character named Martini who is one of the patients in the mental institute, co-starring Jack Nicholson. At this time, we put Danny’s weight at approx 120 lbs, or 54 kilos – give or take 20 lbs (we give ourselves great margin because we don’t have a lot of experience estimating the weight of men who stand a mere 4 ft 9.5 in).
Here we explore the beautiful but usually annoying Tyra Banks and what made her famous in the first place (looks only), her mid-life battle with the bulge, and finally a few reasons why she may get fat again.
1997: Who could forget? The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Shot with Tyra Banks
From this SI shot alone, many would predict it would live on and entertain generations of men (and women) across nations. She is just smoking hot here. We’re certain the photographer had a hard time keeping the camera steady when fixated on this thing of beauty. She was destined for stardom.
