Ethan Suplee has shared his new photos and he’s looking absolutely transformed and strong.
The actor who played Seth Ryan in American History X and was usually identified by his weight is now termed as entirely ripped.
Though the film icon had lost much of his weight some years ago, he looks comparatively changed and stoned now.
Ethan became successful in losing 200lbs weight some years back but he wasn’t as fit and muscly as he appears right now.
At the time when he managed to lose hundreds of pounds by racing and cycling, the actor was left with somewhat loose and drooping skin. But as of now, he seems incredibly muscular and stout.
Revealing that he had almost lost his role due to weight-loss in TV series Chance (in which he starred with Hugh Laurie), Ethan told Entertainment Weekly: “Initially, the casting directors didn’t want me to come in because I’d lost a bunch of weight.
“Apparently they had proposed me a bunch of times, but the casting directors were like, ‘No, he’s too thin now.’”
Ethan who actually tried to gain weight again said: “I’d gained a bunch of weight back because I actually didn’t find being thin all that it’s cracked up to be.
“So we convinced them that I was heavier again, and I went in, and that was that. I was heavy enough.”
Explaining how he’s able to get rid of his huge weight, the 43-year-old said: “After My Name Is Earl, I started obsessively riding bicycles.
“I actually did get properly thin at one point – I was nine percent body fat. But I was also riding a bicycle six to eight hours a day, six days.
“After two years of that, my wife said, ‘Hey, idiot, you can’t retire and ride bicycles. You have to go get a job.’”
Speaking of how both fans and directors didn’t want him to appear thin, he said: “So then [when I started looking for work], I found that people were like, ‘Who are you?
“We don’t know you. You’re this new person.’
“So a couple years ago I made the decision: I’m not going to kill myself to be thin when nobody knows me as a thin person, and I do think it is affecting the kind of jobs I’m getting.
“And so I just kind of relaxed on my diet.”
