Although it was originally reported that the actor only ate an apple a day to drop the weight, he shot down the rumor: “It wasn’t an apple a day. No, you’ve also got lettuce and steamed green beans.”

He also said he worked with a medical professional to lose the weight in a safe manner.

“It’s something I’ve done before and you work with a doctor. It’s all regimented and overseen and safe,” he explained.

He also talked about the temptations: “Todd [Phillips, director] did have these f**king pretzels that I love. And he’d just have bags of them in his office! And that was difficult.”
