Celebs before and after their massive weight changes – When it comes to being a celebrity, there are many elements that must be incredibly difficult to deal with. Sure, you have money, but you also have very little privacy. What that means is that as long as you’re considered to be “famous,” every time you step out of your house there’s a chance the paparazzi are lurking around the corner waiting to snap.

This becomes an even more concerning problem if this celebrity happens to be, you know, a human, and struggle with their weight. Many prominent celebrities have been scrutinized in the past for their weight gains, and many times this was completely uncalled for. In fact, as you’ll learn, many times actors got put on weight specifically for an acting role, not that it stopped critics.
While there’s a wrestler and musician below, many times you’ll find it’s actors that get accosted for their weight gain. Perhaps now instead of thinking Jonah Hill just got fat again, you’ll learn about which upcoming role caused the actor to get larger.
If the celebrity has also been able to reel in their weight gain and is looking better than ever, such as is the case with celebrities like Oprah and Al Roker, that too will be highlighted.
You’ll also learn what actor famously said “I don’t mind I’m fat. You still get the same money.” Fun fact: It’s the same actor that got ham air-lifted to the movie set because he was hungry. Here are 20 examples of the most drastic weight fluctuations that celebrities have experienced.
20. Val Kilmer
Wait, what happened to Batman? Did he realize that with the Batmobile he could get to the nearest McDonald’s in under 3 minutes? Kilmer was cast as the very in-shape and attractive Bruce Wayne for the less than successful Batman film Batman Forever in 1995. This wasn’t the first time that Kilmer has been in shape for. I mean just look at the guy in Top Gun. But looking at the above photo, it becomes clear that there was a time when Val was letting it all go.
Before we rip on Val too hard, we do have to give the actor credit for also being able to reel his weight back in. The above photo was taken when he was perhaps at his heaviest, but in 2015, he tweeted out to haters who thought he could never be Iceman again, saying “Sorry to disappoint but I’m 165 lbs now. And 55 is the new 50!!!”
Kilmer was also required to drop some weight when he played Mark Twain, which he did in 2014 and will again in 2016/2017.
