We all lack self-control because, let’s face it, they’re only human and we’re only human. Some temptations are just too hard to resist like that delicious slice of decadent chocolate cake we always order on Thursdays, or maybe opting for In-n-Out burgers for dinner on Wednesdays after a long and tiring day.
If you’re lucky enough to stay healthy even with all the stress life brings you, then good for you. But for these celebrities, under the spotlight, struggled with their weight and the difference between regular people and celebrities is that they are judged for how much they gain or lose weight.
Below is a list of celebrities who went from fit to fat over the years.
#1. Christina Aguilera
Back in the 90s, Christina Aguilera was considered one of the hottest women to ever exist on earth. But because of her age and her lack of self-control, the singer added a few pounds and we really hope she get over herself and return to her true and original size.
#2. Alec Baldwin
Alec was one of the hunks of the 90s but in the 2000s, he lost his physique gaining a couple of pounds that made him prediabetic. He did manage to become slim again after discovering his diagnosis. The actor realized that his prediabetes was connected to his obesity and managed to lose an astounding 30 pounds.
#3. Britney Spears
Every girl once envied Britney Spears. Not only was she extremely talented and was dubbed the Queen of Pop, she had a very fit body. We’re talking about “Baby One More Time”, “Toxic” and “Oops I Did It Again” days. But as she rose to super stardom, she entitled herself to anything and that includes heavy eating.
#4. Leonardo DiCaprio
Leo certainly said goodbye to his womanizing days because his body isn’t certainly keeping up with his age. The once sexy and angelic-looking actor is now a little chubby with still an angelic, yet plump face and flabby abs.
#5. Gerard Butler
Who drooled while watching the film “300” starring this chiseled Spartan, Gerard Butler? He once mocked the idea of staying in shape when not working on the film. He admitted that he loves food and relaxing but has no problem getting back in shape for the Spartan role.
#6. Mariah Carey
Mariah has amazing vocal capabilities and is considered one of the most beautiful women in the world. She can still sing like how she used to, how she’s on a whole different level when it comes to ranking singers because she’s on top but unfortunately, she became one of the largest. The singer wasn’t able to gain full control over herself, doubling or tripling her normal size. Hopefully, she returns to her nice figure soon.
#7. Kelly Clarkson
We remember Kelly as the American Idol. The singer who can hit those high notes. She was never the healthiest girl in the world but a few years later, she doubled her original size.
#8. Janet Jackson
Janet once had a brief hiatus in the 2000s. But in 2004, the singer put on 60 pounds. It was said that she gained all that weight for a film but wasn’t eventually able to do. Janet described eating whatever she “desired” was “fun” but luckily, she managed to lose those extra pounds quickly.
#9. Jessica Simpson
Once she was the sex symbol of country music for six years but after her publicized relationship with singer Nick Lachey, Jessica went from sexy blonde bombshell to a larger shell.
#10. Brendan Fraser
Brendan was a very famous action star who starred on “The Mummy” and “Tarzan”. He is known for his chiseled good looks and charm but the actor lost reasons to keep his body fit as time quickly goes by. Brendan Fraser now looks like someone who you wouldn’t believe played Tarzan a couple of years ago.
#11. John Travolta
We have seen John Travolta play so many roles such as Saturday Night Fever and Grease. But just recently, the actor made headlines after being reported to be involved in the church of Scientology, rumors of him being homosexual and gaining a ton of weight.
#12. Hilary Duff
Former Disney star Hilary Duff is an extremely talented actress and singer. Many people find her attractive while some don’t blame her for gaining weight a couple of years ago. When she became a mom, Hilary got a couple extra pounds but she managed to solve her weight gain and returned to her regular size.
#13. Rob Kardashian
We know Rob for being the fit youngest brother of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian. Unfortunately, Rob wasn’t all up for the fame. He gained a huge amount of weight and is currently having problems with his weight gain that made his family very worried.
#14. Steven Seagal
He was the definitive action star of the 90s that has a 7th dan black belt in Aikido after training in Japan, becoming the first gaijin to open up a dojo in the US. His big body and action roles clearly have dried up. Steven is now living a relaxing life playing the guitar and eating well that resulted to him gaining some extra pounds.
#15. Kirstie Alley
Kristie admitted that she started gaining weight after entering menopause in 2003. But she did lose weight in 2004. Fast forward to 2009, Kirstie once again gained weight and that was as much as 228 pounds. She participated in “Dancing with the Stars” to try to shed the pounds.
