Pies or lycra: you can’t have both

What does Tobey Maguire have in common with Laurence Fishburne and Mark Hamill? All three of them failed to stay off the pies long enough to film the third instalments of their respective trilogies in the same sized pants as they started out in.

I saw Spiderman 3 in Gold Class cinemas last night, and I have to say that I really didn’t need a 10-foot-tall close-up of Tobey Maguire’s second and third chins.

The only consolation I took from the transformation of Tobey Maguire to Eddie McGuire was that I am still a shot at playing Spiderman in the movies.

Yep, Maguire was really making the lycra work particularly hard this time around.

Fishburne was fat even in the virtual world of The Matrix by the third instalment – that would have sucked more than the movie itself. Laurence mate, the donuts aren’t virtual.

But for porking up, you can’t go past Luke Pie-eater Skywalker. Between Star Wars and The Return of the Jedi, poor old Hamill blew a fuse and was well and truly pushing maximum density. Little known fact: Hamill also played Jabba the Hut in Jedi.*

 *This is actually a lie.

    I just took all the cookies out of the jar to get to the last shortbread cream but I’m not planning on lycra anytime soon.
