Russell Crowe recently shed a lot of weight and he is opening up about why he packed on the pounds.
The 51-year-olds actor gained weight for his role in The Nice Guys and he has been working hard since last summer to slim back down.
“I was [268 pounds] the first week of August last year,” Russell told Australia’s Fitzy & Wippa radio show. “I did a movie called The Nice Guys, so I wanted to be the physical juxtaposition of Ryan Gosling.”
“I’m clawing my way back from that, so I’m about [216 pounds] at the moment,” Russell added about his 52 pound weight loss.
Russell showed off his buff biceps in a black tank top the other day while going for a bike ride. See more photos in the gallery!
