"Dadbod" as in the bloated, middle-aged male body norm has been a hot topic recently. But as easy as Leo DiCaprio and your actual dad makes it look, Colin Farrell says not so fast. Discussing his effort to achieve a convincing "dadbod" for an upcoming role with the Hollywood Reporter he said, "I would put [the ice cream] in the microwave to melt and drink it." Additional diet secrets include: "Two cheeseburgers, fries, and Coca-Colas, and two slices of chocolate cake at 10 a.m." Discipline people, discipline.
