Denny Duquette sure doesn’t look like he used to. Yikes! After Jeffrey Dean Morgan lost more than 40 lbs. for a role, the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ heartthrob looked like he needed to see a doctor!
Now, that’s dedication. It’s also crazy! When Jeffrey Dean Morgan, 49, appeared in Texas Rising, he was nearly unrecognizable from when he captured everyone’s hearts as a heart-transplant patient on Grey’s. The star shed a huge amount of weight for the role and it has us completely shocked!
Jeffrey Dean Morgan Weight Loss: He Lost 40 Pounds For Role
It’s scary what some actors will do for a part! Jeffrey dropped over 40 pounds to play Erastus “Deaf” Smith on the History Channel miniseries, Texas Rising, reports the Daily Mail.
40 pounds! Yikes! Jeffrey wanted to be accurate to the true-life characters depicted in the mini-series, as Erastus had tuberculosis. The disease, once known as The Consumption, wastes people away so Jeffrey shed his hunky self for one that looked frail and thin!
So how did Jeffrey lose the weight? He revealed his shocking diet methods on the May 21 episode of the Today show.
“I ate a can of tuna fish a day. I did it in the most unhealthy way possible,” Jeffrey said. “I didn’t consult with a doctor or anything. We said that maybe we should lose, like, 10 pounds I just kept going and going.”
It’s a good thing that he stopped! If he had lost any more, there wouldn’t be anything left of him! Thankfully, Jeffrey is back to his healthy weight and he says he can’t ever look at a can of tuna fish again!
Jeffrey’s not the only actor messing around with his weight for a role. Jonah Hill was seen with a much larger frame during the shooting of his upcoming movie, Arms And The Dudes. The actor, who slimmed down years ago, looked like he put the weight back on! Thankfully, sources EXCLUSIVELY revealed to HollywoodLife.com that he was wearing a body suit! Phew.
What do you think about Jeffrey’s dramatic weight loss for his role, HollywoodLifers?
