Matthew Fox in Summit's 'Alex Cross'
Fox Drops Mad Weight, Makes Mom Mad
2. Perry isn't the only one playing against type; former "Lost" star Matthew Fox's portrayal of Picasso falls way outside the actor's comfort zone -- or at least it falls outside our comfort zone. Fox dropped nearly 40 pounds to embody the wiry psychopath, thanks mostly to his work with celebrity trainer Simon Waterson, the man who helped Daniel Craig to beome Bond, James Bond. Aside from puke-inducing circuit training -- including weapons, scuba, and mixed martial arts training -- Waterson put Fox on a rigorous diet, which didn't sit well with the actor's sweet tooth tendencies, or with his mother. "My mother hated it," Fox told EOnline. "She's Italian and she's a fantastic cook and loves to feed her son more than anything. She couldn't stand it. It really upset her."
