Russell Crowe Unrecognizable After Massive Weight Gain

He's like a different man!

It’s somewhat common for actors to pack on pounds to play a particular role. Over the years, we’ve seen everyone from Ben Affleck to Jared Leto do it for extremely grueling roles. However, it seems no one has taken to the extreme quite like Russell Crowe, whose massive weight gain has made him almost unrecognizable to the public.

In his latest appearance, the once-buff Gladiator star looks completely different with a larger frame. According to sources, the 53-year-old actor now tips the scales at a whopping 270 pounds!
