Screen hunk Benicio Del Toro vowed he would never pile on the pounds again after plumping up for FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS seven years ago (98) - but he has already gone back on his promise.
He says, "I seem to gain weight pretty fast now. I gained about 5 pounds (2 kilograms) in five days shooting this movie because that Robert Rodriguez flips a mean pizza."
But he hasn't matched the weight he reached for the Hunter S Thompson movie - which reached "painful and unhealthy" proportions.
He recalls, "It was like that film SUPER SIZE ME - just eat as much as you can."11/05/2005 17:16
