20 Famous People Who Couldn’t Stop Eating and Got Fat

These celebs struggle with their weight – just as we normal people do – but the difference is, they are judged for how much weight they gain or lose. This is a list of fat actors who went from fit to fat over the years. Some of them gained weight because of alcohol or food indulgence, whereas others went along the good old fashioned route of gaining a few pounds every year as they aged. Either way, this extra baggage has transformed some of the hottest a A list actors in Hollywood to down right messes.

Some of these celebrities who got fat have been struggling with weight issues for years. Celebs like Kirstie Alley, Matthew Perry even Christina Aguilera have been putting on the pounds and shedding them over and over. Then there’s the cases of top action stars who simply seem to have said “Eff it” and let themselves go in a burst of magnificent fat glory, like Val Kilmer, Steven Seagal and the late, great Marlon Brando. Unfortunately for many “chubby” celebrities, the work stops coming in after they gain some wait. This is especially true for women, while fat male celebrities have a little more leeway. 

Featuring overweight actresses, celebrity model women, movie stars, and more, this list has before and after pictures of their weight gains. 

Take a look at these actors who got fat and see for yourself that nothing gold can stay. Pics include the year they were shot, as some of these celebs have both ballooned and shrunk multiple times.
