New York, Sep 1 (IANS) Singer-actor Tyrese Gibson was pushed so hard to lose weight by his “Seven Pounds” co-star Will Smith that he passed out in his trailer. But Gibson thanks Smith for inspiring him to get back into shape, reports imdb.com.
“The Sweet Lady” hit maker, who first rose to fame as a model known for his six-pack abs, admits he let his healthy eating habits go in recent months.
He said: “Life got a little comfortable for me for a quick minute. I started eating a few things probably a little over 40 pounds.
“I was training with Will Smith on the set of his film ‘Seven Pounds’ and that was the start of me turning it around. Plus some real powerful conversations. He’s intense. Will is intense.
“The times that I passed out in his trailer he was there to help me get on my feet. I passed out trying to keep up with him.”
