"I'm losing some weight. I've got a role coming up in the middle of September. I've lost about 15 pounds, I've gotta lose about 15 more. I should not look healthy by the time I'm doing (filming) this," ontactmusic quoted him as telling new 'Ora TV web' series,
The 42-year-old, who still has a long way to go, admitted that the strict diet has already taken a toll on his health
"It's a bit of a spiritual cleanse, mental cleanse. (I'm) drinking a lot of tea. It takes a while for your body to understand that it has to feed off of itself and that you're not going to give it something else from the outside," he added. (ANI)
