Undoubtedly, movie stars go through a lot to look fit for a role — and among those sacrifices includes, either gaining or losing weight. While weight loss or gain might be a good thing, it also has its side effects. For instance, actor, Joaquin Phoenix, had to lose weight for the movie, The Joker, during an interview, the actor revealed that at some point he suffered from an eating disorder, which he thought might be a symptom of diabetes.

Two weeks before shooting, Daniel’s daily diet consisted of 1 chicken breast, and a protein bar (which I would say would drastically affect one’s weight).
