A lot of people can argue that it's a celebrity's job to be fit and beautiful. After all, they're the ones making millions of dollars, right? Of course, there are the overweight celebrities who depend on their sizable waistlines as part of their image. But is the strain on their health worth the hefty paychecks? Here are eight famous guys who could use a fitness overhaul.
In his words: "Actually, when I go home to Michigan, I'm one of the skinny guys."
The sizable filmmaker made us take a long hard look at the nation's health care system in his controversial documentary Sicko. Weighing in at just over 300 pounds, Moore would be wise to examine his own health as closely, especially since he's now in his mid-50s. To his credit, Moore has reportedly made attempts to shed the pounds through lifting weights, eating smarter, and getting more sleep. He's also been quoted as saying he'd like to get down to 225 pounds.
Least Fit Moment
During a 2007 interview with New York Magazine, Moore was asked if he lost any weight prior to the release of Sicko to avoid being called a hypocrite by the critics. His response: "Not at all. [Losing weight] actually works against me. . . . See, as I've gained weight over the years, I've become more popular. You can really track the box office going up as I put on the pounds: Roger & Me, $7 million. Bowling for Columbine, $21 million. Fahrenheit, $120 million."
