Showbiz Spy reports: The actor — who has had to count calories for years to stay in action hero shape — has vowed his next screen role will be “doughnut friendly”.
“For the last two years, Matt has literally had to watch every morsel he put in his mouth,” a source said.
“He’s admitted to pals that he’s sick to death of dieting. He says he wants to find a project where he doesn’t have to count every single calorie.
“And if he can’t find a project like that, Matt has said he’ll take a break from filming. That’s how serious he is.
The 42-year-old Oscar winner diet religiously while filming the Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra and the upcoming sci-fi thriller Elysium, said the source.
“To slim down, Matt ran five miles on the beach every day, cut out carbs and ate a lot of tuna, chicken and almonds,” said the pal.
“Matt’s ready to step back from the hunk roles. He’d much rather eat doughnuts and look like all the other dads picking up their kids at karate class.”
