Hollywood actor Russell Crowe gained immense weight after filming the movie 'Body Of Lies', so much so that he found it difficult to get out of a car.
Though the 'A Good Year' actor has lost and gained weight for multifarious flicks, he admitted that he had never got so fat.
Crowe revealed that he decided to have a health check when once he found himself struggling to get out of his car.
He said that test results showed that his cholesterol levels were dangerously high.
"At one point I worried about it from a health point of view because I had my cholesterol checked. It had reached dangerous territory," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
"I was surprised that my body was taking all of it so seriously. I was enjoying myself, because I was eating and drinking what I liked, but my body was objecting. The most frightening thing was having to rock back and forwards to get out of a car. Instead of stepping out, I had to tip myself out," he added.
