Sean Astin Is A Big Fat Actor And Other Observations

I read on the IMDB that Sean "I'm Samwise in Lord of the Rings and You're Not" Astin had to sit on his dead ass and eat like a damn disgusting pig.

I do like me some Thanksgiving dinner.

Astin said that he had to gain 30 pounds for the role. He said something like how "amazing" it was that he gained weight when he started eating and stopped exercising. See, back in the 80s they didn't teach child actors biology.

He also taunted everyone who's ever tried to lose weight by saying, "I didn't change my diet at all. Literally, I was like Forrest Gump. I was running and running."

Meanwhile, fellow Goonies star Corey Feldman said, "I wish I had some food."
