Jerry OâConnell was one of the cuter than cute child stars of coming of age movie Stand By Me. When he moved to Hollywood as a young man he slid straight into the party scene, and watched his body puff up as a result.
But when he landed the role of a football player in Jerry Maguire, O'Connell knew he had to shape up. He's done it sensibly, jogging regularly and watching his diet. "I found that by just cutting out booze, salt, and dressings, the fat just drips off you," he told Men's Fitness magazine in 2006.
