Actor Matt Bomer recently disclosed that he lost over 35 pounds to play the role of a man suffering from AIDS to play the role of Felix Turner in the highly anticipated HBO movie "The Normal Heart". The fact that he committed himself to losing this amount of weight for the role got the attention of entertainment insiders and filmmakers for his dedication to his craft as he showed a commitment and discipline that people talk about but very few possess.
To lose the weight he engaged in a 14-day cleanse of alkalized water enzymes, juice and tea at the "We Care Spa" in Desert Hot Springs and also sought out advice from his "Magic Mike" co-star Matthew McConaughey who lost over 40 pounds for his Oscar award performance in the "Dallas Buyers Club".
Many entertainment insiders upon learning that he lost over 35 pounds to play the part were stunned as he recently appeared on the May cover of Details magazine and he looked exceptional as if he had never lost weight. To lose five pounds is a big thing for many people and the fact that he lost so much weight for the role was both admirable and impressive to many filmmakers.
The buzz from the movie is that Matt Bomer has put forth a performance that will likely place him into the rarefied air of some of the top leading men in Hollywood and this will not be a surprise to anyone when they look at his Details cover where he definitely looks te part of the ideal leading man.
The star of the television series "White Collar" is earning praise from his peers and attention from filmmakers not just for his good looks and acting talent but his willingness to commit to 'conforming' to the role which has made him an even more appealing choice to be a leading man in future movie projects.
Look for Matt Bomer, married to partner Simon Halls and father of three children to become one of the most in-demand actors in Hollywood after the release of the "The Normal Heart".
