Your Favorite Bear Daniel Franzese Wants You to Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin
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.
