Carrot fell in love with weight training during his high school wrestling
days but didn't get serious until his career took off and got on auto pilot.
Carrot Top attributes his change of lifestyle from being an on-the-road
stand-up comedian to finding a permanent home for his show on the Las Vegas

Playing a Spartan warrior is never easy but when your're wearing nothing but
a loin cloth in a graphic novel there is no hiding anything from the camera.
Gerard Butler had to train his way to look the part of Leonidas and it wasn't
easy. In addition to countless hours of weapons training for the movie's
action scenes Butler enlisted the help of a top level mountain climbing trainer

before Butler obtained the "strong" look he desired and appeared on screen
looking the part of the Spartan King Leonidas.

diet in which he consumed mostly coffee & cigarettes and some apple or
tuna which gave him around 275 calories a day.
According to the DVD commentary, he lost 62 pounds, reducing his body mass to
The "American Psycho Bale even wanted to go down to 99 pounds! Luckily
for him, the the filmmakers would not let him due to health concerns. What
makes Bale's transformation so remarkable is he gained 40 pounds of muscle back
through weight training and proper nutrition for his next roll of Bruce Wayne in
Batman Begins a few short months later.
