Everything You Need to Know About the Actor Who Plays ‘The Mountain’

the mountain actor game of thronesThe first thing to know about the latest actor to tackle the role of Gregor Clegane a.ka. “The Mountain” on Game of Thrones, is that he’s not a trained actor at all, he’s a competitive weightlifter.

At 6’9″ and nearly 420 pounds, Hafthor Bjornsson (nicknamed “Thor” and “The Icelander”) is the third strongest man in the entire world, and the strongest in Iceland. And a role on Game of Thrones isn’t the only unique offer Bjornsson has received based on his physique. 

In 2013, the Indianapolis Colts almost added him to their roster, and it’s likely that other teams expressed interest, as Bjornsson once said that he “had to choose” between his training in the gymacting and the NFL.  Continue reading “Everything You Need to Know About the Actor Who Plays ‘The Mountain’”

Giant 13-Pound German Baby Will Give You Fever Dreams

giant baby germany
For all you royal watchers impatiently waiting for new pictures of Kate and William’s baby, stop. That shit is not impressive or interesting. A German woman giving birth to a 13-and-a-half pound baby is.

My giant Siamese cat Raisin doesn’t weight much more than that. I mean, the kid is almost two feet long and it just makes me think he had a bit too much time to gestate.

Like, damn. Smoke a few cigarettes or something. Reduce the birth weight. You don’t need to put yourself through that. Your baby has a mustache and looks like pre-Weight Watchers Horatio Sanz.  Continue reading “Giant 13-Pound German Baby Will Give You Fever Dreams”

Jennifer Lawrence Lost Weight to Play Mystique?

Jennifer Lawrence mystique new x menFlog and chastise me all you want for talking about Jennifer Lawrence‘s weight, but I’m one of the good guys. I talk about it because I can’t believe people actually think she’s “overweight” or big in any way and aren’t just saying it to be mean. (Need I remind you of formerly respected New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis, who wondered why Lawrence and her “womanly figure” were cast as starving Katniss Everdeen.)

The internet is abuzz after X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer tweeted a photo of naked J-Law back in the blue Mystique paint she last donned in 2011.

Everyone’s like “Oh my god, she lost weight, the criticism is getting to her.” OR it’s because she just went through a breakup (with First Class co-star Nicholas Hoult).  Continue reading “Jennifer Lawrence Lost Weight to Play Mystique?”

Lady Gaga Is A Show-Off, Lost 25 Pounds In 7 Days

Photos from Tuesday, September 18th showed the world a slightly larger version of Lady Gaga than we’re used to.

Yesterday, Gaga posted skinny pictures of herself wearing nothing but yellow underwear (with messages like “Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15”) to LittleMonsters.com shortly after confessing that she’d gained 25 pounds from eating too much Italian food.

Some speculated that she was pregnant, while others suggested that the weight gain was photoshopped, or a publicity stunt…

The only thing I’m confused by is her decision to not become the spokeswoman for Weight Watchers, Hydroxycut, or TrimSpa. I mean, as a celebrity, why not make a little money off of your diet? You give them the before and after photos, they throw a few thousand dollars at you.  Continue reading “Lady Gaga Is A Show-Off, Lost 25 Pounds In 7 Days”

Gaga Talks Dieting, Blames Dad’s Italian Cooking

So it turns out that nutritionist who estimated that Lady Gaga had gained 30 pounds wasn’t far off after all, either that or she just heard it so many times she decided to agree but subtract five pounds because no one’s allowed to be that right.

“I’m dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds,” Gaga told Z100’s Elvis Duran. “And you know I really don’t feel bad about it, not even for a second. I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. It’s hard because it’s a quite vigorous show, so I tend to bulk up, get muscular, and I really don’t like that. So I’m trying to find a new balance.”

A balance between Superfood and meatballs that is. The culprit behind the weight gain is her dad’s restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, in Manhattan.  Continue reading “Gaga Talks Dieting, Blames Dad’s Italian Cooking”

Lady Gaga Gained A Bit Of Weight, But Shhh, I’m Not Supposed To Talk About It

Recently, a nutritionist who never met or treated Lady Gaga, told Radar Online that she gained “at least 30 pounds.”

The initial media response was to report about the potential weight gain, because they noticed that she had indeed gained a little bit of weight, though I doubt it’s actually 30 pounds. A mere twelve pounds can look like a lot on someone her height, just ask Snooki, or Christina Aguilera.

The second response from softer outlets, was to defend Gaga, which I also understand.

“But what’s piling on is the bullshit: Body scrutiny like this is cruel and pointless,” Jezebel’s Dodai Stewart wrote in a piece entitled “Shut The Fuck Up About Lady Gaga’s Weight.”  Continue reading “Lady Gaga Gained A Bit Of Weight, But Shhh, I’m Not Supposed To Talk About It”

Carlos Mencia Lost 70 Pounds

Carlos Mencia, the 44 year-old Mind of Mencia comedian has lost a total of 70 pounds. After being ripped to shreds by fans and even fellow comedians for possibly stealing his material from the likes of George Lopez and others, Mencia sought therapy.

The therapy and weight loss seem to have worked, because Carlos has a new stand-up special called “Carlos Mencia: New Territory,” which will air on Comedy Central this Sunday.

Christina Aguilera: Pregnant Or Sausage? (Moves Like Jäger)

When I say “pregnant or sausage” I don’t mean is she pregnant or does she have a penis, I mean is it just her natural sausage physique. You know, where the body morphs and is all one shape and size right down the middle. No hips no boobs, just one conglomerate, like melted taco cheese.

After her performance at the American Music Awards people noticed that Christina Aguilera looked pregnant, but she’s not, and why are people just now noticing this? She looked like that on The Voice and when she flubbed the national anthem at The Super Bowl for god’s sakes and before.

Kirstie Alley Lost 100 Pounds, Looks Great

Kirstie Alley, 60, after a tumultuous struggle with her weight, revealed to ET that she’s finally reached her goal.

The Cheers/Fat Actress shared that she’d lost a whopping 100 pounds and is very happy with her size 6 body.

“I feel like I’m back in my element. I honestly didn’t even realize what I looked like.”

She even strutted out on the catwalk at NY Fashion Week during Zang Toi’s fashion show at Lincoln Center.

I always was of the opinion that there was something inherently unhealthy about Kirstie’s Alley’s face when she was overweight.

Not necessarily that she looked “bad” simply because she’d gained weight in her body…

Demi Lovato Is Not Fat, Idiots

I barely know who Demi Lovato is. I know she’s a Disney starlet type, like Miley Cyrus or Selena Gomez? She is an ex-girlfriend of Joe Jonas, along with Taylor Swift and Camilla Belle.

I don’t know a single one of her songs but she kind of reminds me of a younger version of that ex-American Idol judge, umm Kara DioGuardi?

What I do know is that this girl is not fat or large or remotely overweight. On Sunday, Demi, 19, came under fire for apparent weight gain during and after her appearance (left) at the VMAs.

This is particularly disturbing considering she was in a treatment facility for bulimia and self-injury in October 2010 and was released in January of this year.
