London (ANI): Actor Russell Crowe is the latest actor to join the likes of Charlize Theron and Robert De Niro, gaining a huge 63lbs by eating cheeseburgers and cupcakes for his role in the new film Body of Lies. The Beautiful Mind star is playing CIA boss Ed Hoffman in the new flick, reports The Sun.
He has admitted that he's been munching on cheeseburgers for breakfast, and also gorging on cupcakes. His new look is far away from the incredibly toned torso he sported in 2000 film Gladiator. The actor follows in the footsteps of Theron who gained 30lbs for Monster and De Niro who added 60lbs to his frame for Raging Bull.
The spy thriller is set for a November 21 release.
