Shia LaBeouf gained 40 pounds for his newest movie, Lawless. LaBeouf talked about his weight gain on a recent appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
"I gained about 40 pounds, just eating, your whole lifestyle becomes something else," LaBeouf said. "Every three hours you consume, food becomes vitamins, it's about necessity, which is gorging, it's horrible."
The actor said he even had to wake up in the middle of the night to maintain his weight-gain diet.
"It was protein shakes really, a lot of chicken and eggs," he said. "At night, you wake up every three hours, take the shake and wake up. It's monotonous. You only have a certain amount of time, I had a month, two months to get there."
