Being a celebrity requires a lot of work. Most importantly, you need to stay in the best of shape. As evidenced by a lot of celebs, they are always in shape and they always look amazing. Some of them, however, at one point allowed themselves to gain a ton of weight and no longer look as fit and as sexy as they once were.
Here are a few celebrities who used to be slim but then let themselves go
1. Britney Spears
Combine her busy schedule with her checkered past, it’s easy to see why the singer gained so much weight in such a short period. She’s still beautiful, but the bra and panties look is not getting anyone excited…
2. Kelly Clarkson
Even though people have criticized the American Idol winner for her weight gain, she doesn’t let any of it get to her. Once, she told Ellen “we are who we are, whatever size”. So true.
3. Vince Vaughn
Vince is proof that girls aren’t the only ones who get criticized should they gain weight, but even though he hasn’t lost any weight recently, he hasn’t lost his fantastic sense of humor either.
4. Christian Bale
Bale is quite well known for his ability to gain and lose weight for his roles in very short periods. Just look at his body in The Machinist, and then compare it to his body in Batman Begins. While it’s amazing to see, it can’t be that good for his health.
5. Steven Seagal
This actor, director and martial arts legend was made of muscle at the height of his career. Since then, he’s let himself go a little.
6. Val Kilmer
Ever since his days as the chiseled hunk Iceman in Top Gun, Val has certainly let himself go a little bit, apparently due to being diagnosed with a tumor in 2015. He spent the entirety of 2014 slimming down for his “dream role” as Mark Twain.
7. Jessica Simpson
Jessica’s weight has always fluctuated. She got in top shape for her role in Dukes of Hazzard, but after that, she found it hard to maintain her size. She attracted a lot of attention in the media for gaining 70 pounds during her first pregnancy.
8. Matt Damon
For most of his career, Matt Damon has had quite the body, which is why it was jarring to see him after he had gained 30 pounds for The Informant. He did manage to lose it afterward, however.
9. Carrie Fisher
When Carrie Fisher became Princess Leia in Star Wars, she became every boy’s dream girl, but she then developed some not very healthy eating habits. Due to having to reprise her role in the new Star Wars movie, she dropped her weight again.
10. Marlon Brando
Marlon Brando was always a total sex symbol, and he won several Oscars for his performances, but his eating habits got out of control as he got older. It’s rumored that in one sitting, Brando devoured 12 Burger King Whoppers, two whole chickens, five gallons of ice cream and six hot dogs. At one point, he weighed 350 pounds.
11. Mark Hamill
Similarly to his co-actress Carrie Fisher, Hamill gained all the pounds after the buzz of Star Wars ended, but also similarly, he went on a tough regime for Star Wars Episode VII.
12. Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey had the voice of an angel and a body to match, but she struggled to main a slim figure as she got older, as you do.
13. Brendan Fraser
His six pack looked amazing as he swung through the trees, but in his current shape, he’s not really looking at his best.
16. Keely Shaye Smith
More commonly known as Pierce Brosnan’s wife, she stunned audiences when she first appeared on the red carpet alongside her husband with a gorgeous hourglass figure, but now, she’s looking curvier than ever.
