Jack Black on an all-raisin diet

Writer: Anne Jamaludin


Black plans to go on all-raisins diet for next year.

24 Dec – Comedian and musician Jack Black has decided to lose weight come New Year.

"I'm gonna drop fifty pounds," said the "Gulliver's Travels" actor who is planning a strict exercise and diet regime to achieve his goal as reported by Access Hollywood.

Black also jokingly stated, "How many quarter-pounders with cheeses is that? I'm gonna drop 200 quarter-pounder with cheeses."

But the actor straightaway changed to a serious tone and said, "Push-ups, sit-ups and a strict diet of raisins. That's my plan."

Black recently attended the "Gulliver's Travel"'s Los Angeles premiere without his sons Samuel "Sammy" Jason (age 4) and Thomas (age 2) because they do not know he is famous.

The actor explained, "I didn't bring my babies because they don't know I'm famous yet. I'm trying to keep it well-hid. They're like, 'Whatever. Daddy's daddy.' They think I'm a salesman."

"Gulliver's Travels" tells of travel writer Lemuel Gulliver, who is washed ashore on the hidden island of Liliput, home to a population of tiny people.

Cinema Online's "Gulliver's Travels" contest winners recently got shipped away to Liliput during the preview screening at the newly-opened GCS Maxx Berjaya Times Square, Kuala Lumpur.
