Ah, the hazards of moviemaking. George Clooney, Robert DeNiro, Rene Zellweger, and Christian Bale have all had to gain or lose dramatic amounts of weight for movie roles. Meryl Streep, now 60, struggled to lose eight pounds for her editrix role in Devil Wears Prada, limiting herself to one glass of wine a night. She went the other way while playing renowned French chef Julia Child in Julie & Julia: she gained 15 pounds. At least she came out ahead with some cooking tips, she told Ladies Home Journal.

UPDATE: For her part, Gwyneth Paltrow detoxes to lose those pesky extra pounds.
