US Director Kevin Smith has recently lost nearly five stone and admitted he was shamed into losing the weight after he was told to leave an airplane because he was too overweight for one seat.
The 'Clerks' filmmaker famously launched angry rants on Twitter at Southwest Airlines last year after the humiliating incident.
“I’ll lose the weight, but I’m not putting on thinner clothes.
“I feel mixed feelings... I sympathise far more with heavier people than I ever will with thin (people). I’ll never be thin. Look, Let's be honest, I’ve lost 65 pounds, but nobody’s going ‘I want to sleep with you’, they’re just like, ‘Keep going, you look better.’” Smith Said.
