Leonardo DiCaprio to Lose 30 lbs for New Movie

No more fancy dinners and nights out at bars for Leonardo DiCaprio. Leo is reportedly going on a strict diet and exercise program in order to lose 30 lbs for a his new movie Inception.

A source told RadarOnline: “Leonardo needs to shed at least 30lbs. He's gained weight recently and looks almost a bit flabby, which isn't good, especially as the camera adds pounds.

“There's an action scene coming up at the end of the year in which he needs to appear emaciated, so the pressure is on.”

Leo plays Jacob Hastley in the action flick, which is about an officer worker who becomes involved in a blackmail scandal.

The movie source added: “He is following a strict diet and is embarking on a rigorous workout regime. Leonardo is a pretty determined kind of guy, when he sets his mind to things he always achieves them. Though this is going to be hard for him, you can guarantee he'll succeed."

Leo has this amazing ability to morph into the characters he plays. Although it'll be hard to give up sweets and beer for a while, we're sure the end result will be worth it. We're still waiting for him to score an Oscar nod. Maybe this will be his year!
