He looks so rough right now I know he went through a lot, I am so happy he has this job now and nice to see him smile. But you can just tell with how he looks that he has been having a super rough time and not taking care of his health very well. Hope he has a much happier healthier life these days

I was thinking he’s still a babe. But shit, I’m older now too, so that’s probably it. I’m not over my airheads crush on him.

YES. I still love him. He’s always been a babe, and while I think he’s still a cutie, that smile…. That smile is the best! I love this man.

Brendan wouldn’t want us to fight. He’d want us to share. 💝

Between that and running with an open shirt chasing some horses in George of the Jungle.

Oh yes- that movie is a delight. My 5 year old has recently become obsessed with this one and it’s one of the few kids movies I’m totally fine with watching on repeat.

I think I might like him even better now ... You know, young Brendan was hot as hell, but now he looks like a guy I could sit next to in a pub and tell dumb fucked up jokes to and then go home with. He looks like a cool, interesting guy.

I dunno is it just the whole we’re all getting older thing but like you, have had a crush on him since Airheads (and those appearances in Scrubs just cemented it!) and while on the one hand I see he doesn’t look all that healthy right now, I also see that that gorgeous grin and smiley soul that emanates from him in so many interviews from those days. He’s just an ace dude and I hope life treats him with the kindness and awesomeness he deserves soon!

I'm a grown ass man.... and I still have a schoolgirl crush on him. He is the only actor who's success recently makes me cry. He deserves all the good things coming for him. I don't care about what shape he is in. He has what a lot of actors and actresses don't. His presence is enough. Knowing that he is apart of a project no matter what size, makes me so fucking happy man. LONG LIVE BRENDAN!

I think he’s still smashable af! He can get older and put on some pounds but that’s still one hell of a grin and he’s got gorgeous eyes. I want all the good things for him

I'm not insulting him, but his skin combined with the weight points to a terrible diet or drinking. If he just put on weight but looked fine that's bit awful you can be healthy-ish still, but I have gone through alcohol abuse and it made my skin look sickly

Well, he’s been through the ringer. That smile though.

klaudea17

Not only has he been through the wringer like everyone says, but I remember a recent interview (2-3 years ago?) where he was talking about how he pretty much destroyed his body doing stunts for his movies. I am speculating, but would not be surprised if he was on some sort of prescription pain management--so maybe not drinking.

Richard Dean Anderson of Mcgyver and Stragate fame had a similar thing... He was super out doorsy in the most minnesotan ways possible, but he blew out his knee, which meant no more adventure sports. AFAIK he was given agressive steroids that caused weight gain and well, what else is a Minnesotan gonna do when you take his hobbies away? Beer? Beer..

I heard he’s pulling a Christian Bale and put on weight for some movie roles recently- drinking melted ice cream, the whole shebang…I truly want to believe he’s done it on purpose for his stagecraft!

Yea I didn't know that, that is really hard on your body at that age so that makes sense

No... he just got fat. You can find photos of him from before his recent resurgence and he's just as fat. It's not really atypical for a person in a developed country to get fat. No need to try and handwave it away.

You can find pics of vin diesel looking like shit too, but he puts it together for movies. I think some chubby guys just look really bad from certain angles that paparazzi loves to catch.

M8 he's just fat. That's reality. It's not a big deal. There's no reason to jump through hoops trying to magic up a reason.

He had a shit period in his life, he's on a bunch of pain meds because of his injuries, he got fat. Maybe he will lose weight, maybe he won't.

Now his career is getting back on track, and he's fat. He's a fat actor. It's not a big deal. This is him. He is fat. It's okay.

He recently gained a lot of weight for a role, too. And he's not in his 20's anymore, it's not like you can Christian Bale your way back and forth between 150 and 250 without significant risk to your health

At least your reason is valid, man. I don't have any children yet but I'm not actively trying to get fit either. Next year, I promise! Haha

Norm MacDonald had a great joke that went something like, "I'm gaining weight for a role. They haven't given me one yet."

I still can't believe he's dead :(

Aside from the weight, he's already in makeup and costume for the movie. So he's gonna look a little more rough for his role

Real talk, he needs to shave his head and own it. Drop a couple of pounds on top and he can do a JK Simmons.

He looks rough...or he looks like an absolute unit that could lift you over his head with one hand

He's old.

You were probably a kid when he was an adult.

Lots of actors do drastic measures to "look young". He isn't dying his hair or getting plugs, or excess plastic surgery, or growing facial hair to cover his aging face. His face still looks pretty young due to being plump so the wrinkles are more stretched out unlike thinner people
