“I’ve always been a friend of food. I probably put on about seven pounds in Rome when we were shooting. I ate a lot of pizzas in Naples. It was just great. But it was hard on take 10 on a giant plate of pasta … That is a strange thing that happens. People get wildly famous and they get incredibly slim. I don’t know. It never happened to me. I look the same. I guess that is my staying power. My fighting weight.”
