From Fit to FatJared has long been recognized as one of Hollywood's hunkiest actors, even dating the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Cameron Diaz. At his usual weight of 140 pounds, he was always considered to be lean and toned.

The McDonald's Diet
He packed the pounds on, 50 to be exact, by allegedly eating burgers, fries, and melted pints of ice cream. Since he did zero exercise during filming, Jared's health was closely monitored by a doctor. Good luck to him shedding all that extra weight. Maybe he should talk to Bridget Jones
