Due to the demands of the script, the actor has lost 25 kilos and has caused a radical change in his body.
The actor Dave Franco is unrecognizable. Due to the demands of the script, he has lost 25 kilos and has caused a radical change in his body. His new movie is called ‘6 balloons’ and he plays a drug addict and, for that, he had to undergo a tremendous physical transformation to be able to record. And it has not been easy, because the protagonist of ‘Malditos Vecinos’ or ‘Ahora me ves …’ says that he felt depressed while shooting and had to attend physical therapy once he finished recording. It is not the least to see the result.
We remember Dave Franco in films like ‘Malditos Neighbors’ or ‘Ahora me ves …’, but the last work in which he was seen was in the film of ‘ Nerve: A game without rules’ in 2016, where he was with actress Emma Roberts. Since then he had not played an important role. Until now it has surprised us with 6 ballons
In this film, he gives life to a drug addict and, for this, he had to undergo a tremendous physical transformation to be able to record. A change that has made him lose 25 kilos and not look like him. To the point that the actor himself says he has had to undergo therapy to see the result. “I came home and my wife Alison called me and said: ‘You’re not yourself, it’s not fun being close to you!’ And we understand her perfectly because her appearance has nothing to do with the previous one and in that she looked a lot like her brother, James.
And it is clear that losing weight so quickly is not good, and less with their methods. The actor admits that he ran all day, every day to lose weight and ended up ruining his knee to the point that, when production was over, he had to go to physiotherapy for a couple of months. Here is a series of recommendations to lose weight with control, and not as Dave has done.
Social networks have echoed the transformation of the actor and have hung images of how Dave Franco looks after this project. And the truth is that nobody is satisfied with the result. We hope that the actor’s health is already recovering and these sudden changes to play a character should be treated with care. It is not the first time that the actors have to submit to these changes for a role, here are some examples.
