Jared Leto’s rapid weight gain for ‘Chapter 27’
In the film Chapter 27, actor and musician Jared Leto gained 67 pounds to portray Mark David Chapman. Leto is typically recognized for his thin frame, but it took a significant amount of ice cream and fatty food to gain 67 lbs.
Because Leto was a portly individual, Chapman needed to bulk him up quickly. By the time filming ended, Leto had gout in both of his feet and was having difficulties walking on the set. He later remarked that it took him more than a year to get his physique back in order.
