While I was browsing through the February issue of Cosmopolitan, I found a great little blurb on Jeremy Piven, who I love by the way, talking about his weight loss.
I don't want to neglect the boys, ahem I mean men, in Hollywood so here is what he did to drop some weight:
Cosmo: "Is it true you dropped 20 pounds to play your character in Smokin’ Aces?"
Jeremy Piven: “This character was an entertainer — a magician turned gangster turned snitch — and he was doing a great deal of cocaine. If you’re gonna abuse yourself that heavily and rob your body of nutrients, you’re gonna lose body weight. I went down to about 158 just by eating smaller meals and more meals on a strict raw-food diet. Oddly enough, I was in the best shape of my life to portray the worst shape of my life.”
Interesting, I wouldn't have pinned him as a raw-food diet kind of guy. Jeremy definitely makes me laugh in Entourage but he loves to make himself laugh with Laughter Yoga. There's more on funny man Jeremy in Cosmo's Feb issue, so check it out on newsstands now.
