CAMERON DIAZ's boyfriend JARED LETO lost so much weight for his latest movie he forgot how to eat.
The Hollywood actor lost 7 kgs (25 lbs) for his role as heroin addict HARRY GOLDFARB in his latest movie REQUIEM and had a number of unpleasant experiences. He was robbed at unpoint on New York's Lower East Side, where he spent many nights researching his role, and his lack of food nearly lead him to lose his sanity. He says, "It was brutal. I was miserable making it, and I went off the deep end, but it was 1,000 per cent worth it. "It was difficult learning to eat again."
