In an interview with Chubstr, beloved actor, activist and bear icon Daniel Franzese talked about the ups and downs of being a big guy in Hollywood.

Franzese, who acted in Mean Girls and Looking, told interviewers about how his weight affects his ability to snag a role. Perhaps surprisingly, being heavy doesn’t hurt his chances. “Every time I’ve lost weight, I get less roles,” he said.

Instead, being in-between spells career death. “I once had someone tell me ‘you can either gain 50 pounds, or lose 50 pounds, but I can’t sell you at what you’re at right now,’” he said. “If you’re somewhere in the middle, then it’s a little harder.”
