Garcia Sweats His Way To Hollywood

ADAM GARCIA scored his big Hollywood break in COYOTE UGLY - but only after enduring a gruelling role in SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER.

The Australian hunk starred as TONY MANERO in London's West End version of the movie that launched JOHN TRAVOLTA to stardom in the '70s. Recalling his year as the white-suited king of disco, Garcia says, "It killed me. It massacred my body. It's a b***h of a show. It's a really draining role.

I didn't drink for a year. I didn't go out for a year. You'd do your show, go home, sleep, wake up and come and do another show. That was your life." (JE/TNT/RGS)
