Tom Hanks Reveals He Has Diabetes, Movie Roles May Have Contributed to Condition

Tom Hanks Reveals He Has Diabetes, Movie Roles May Have Contributed to ConditionSubmit Comment
While promoting "Captain Phillips," Tom Hanks revealed to David Letterman that he was recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Doctors believe that the actor's weight fluctuations for movie roles may have contributed to his condition.

"I went to the doctor and he said 'You know those high blood sugar numbers you've been dealing with since you were 36? Well, you've graduated. You've got Type 2 diabetes," revealed Hanks.

The actor's weight fluctuated for numerous roles, including "A League of Their Own" (30 pound gain) and "Cast Away" (50 pound loss). "In dramatic weight gain and dramatic weight loss, the equilibrium of the body is just completely off. So that might predispose him to developing Type 2 diabetes later," explained Dr. Holly Phillips.

Hanks, who looked more in shape than usual, said that his doctor gave him advice on how to control his diabetes. "My doctor said 'If you can weigh as much as you weighed in high school you will essentially be completely healthy and will not have Type 2 diabetes. I said 'Well, I'm gonna have Type 2 diabetes because there is no way I can weigh as much as I did in high school.'"

When asked how much he weighed in high school, Hanks replied: "96 pounds. I was a very skinny boy."

Christian Bale is probably in for a lot more than just Type 2. That'll be interesting reading about in another 20 years...

Right. He gets old and fat and fails to maintain his health and it's Hollywood's fault.

@Taco: my very first thought as well. What about Christian Bale? Or Val Kilmer?

You know who doesn't have diabetes? Tom Cruse. He "audits" every ailment and potential defect from his body using Thetan power.

Thetans, bitches. Thetans.

I don't usually wish such horror on most people, but why can't *ssholes in Hollywood get sick and not the decent ones? MY guess though is actually psychological. The decent ones give a f*ck so the stress on their bodies long term is horrible.
