Playing a transsexual female, Jared, 40, hasn’t revealed exactly how much weight he has lost, but it’s a lot. And unlike co-star, Matthew McConaughey - who lost 40 pounds over 6 months for his role in this film – Jared has basically admitted to starving himself the last month. Not smart and certainly not healthy.
Jared recently told Vulture: “Your body goes through weird stages. Sometimes it’s hard to hold on to water. But for me, it’s not about the most weight I can lose, it’s more to represent the character.’
He went on: “Historically, people have done it for pursuit of self, to achieve a meditative state, so I’m hoping for that. It’s not necessarily a bad thing.”
The photo of Jared taken by Terry Richardson shows the actor with an extremely sunken in stomach, leaving us to wonder if he may have gone too far.
