Hopper also recalled feeling “miserable” when he followed these diets, even though he appeared to be healthy. He explained, “I had really low energy and everything kind of dropped. I looked lean on the outside but internally I was like, ‘Man, I don’t feel like I was aiming to look.’”
“I always thought, ‘Well, if you look like that you must feel great.’ But that was not balancing out for me. There was always this up and down. I would be getting really lean for a role and then I’d finish the role. Then I would binge on crap food.”
Fortunately, the 36-year-old star’s relationship with food has since improved. And now, through his partnership with Viome, he’s hoping to inspire others to take their health and eating habits more seriously. He said, “There’s a big pandemic happening in the world, which is people’s general, overall health, and Viome is trying to [solve] that problem through preventative means.”
We get the feeling Luther Hargreeves would definitely approve.
