7 Stars Going To Extremes To Prep For Photoshoots

Matthew Morrison
Matthew Morrison of “Glee” looked pretty yummers on the cover of Details. Apparently, it didn’t come completely naturally. Matt has a secret for making his six pack look more like an eight pack. For three days before the shoot, he ate nothing but sweet potatoes. “I had to have a six-pack on show,” he explained. “My trainer said eat ­nothing apart from sweet potato and very little water. The potato acts as a sponge and your body literally shrinks and gets ripped and tight.” [Daily Mirror]

Ahhh, how equal things feel when dudes get all manorexic. Yeah, I’m kidding. Eating nothing but sweet potatoes for three days is pretty darn insane—not to mention nutritionally a terrible idea. But sadly, it’s not the first time I’ve heard a celebrity say they went to extremes to prepare for a photoshoot. After the jump, some more examples. And please, please—do not try these at home. You look great just the way you are.
