This isn't the first time Leto, who got his start playing Claire Danes' character's boyfriend on the mid-90s short-lived hit "My So-Called Life," has suffered for his art. For the 2007 movie "Chapter 27," the actor gained 60 pounds to play John Lennon's killer Mark David Chapman. Because of the trauma of "force-feeding" himself, Leto got gout in one of his feet towards the end of filming. "I couldn't walk for long distances," he revealed in 2008 to the New York Daily News. "I had a wheelchair because it was so painful. My body was in shock from the amount of weight I gained."
And taking off all those pounds wasn't any easier. "It took about a year to get back to a place that felt semi-normal," Leto added. "I don't know if I'll ever be back to the place I was physically. I'd never do it again; it definitely gave me some problems."
Hopefully growing back his eyebrows will be easier!
