'Always Sunny' Star

Being Fat Was AWESOME!!!

12/24/2011 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Rob McElhenney fat
"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" star Rob McElhenney has finally dropped the 50 pounds of fatness he put on for the show this season ... but dude admits it was fun being a glutton.

Rob hit The Grove in L.A. yesterday along with his wife/co-star Kaitlin Olson ... and revealed the two main junk food groups he gorged on to pack on the weight.

But there was one down side to the fat phase ... besides clogged arteries ... and according to Kaitlin, it caused some problems in the bedroom.

TMZ - I think you should update this story with a clarification. Mac put on "mass," not "fat." If anyone's not sure what the big deal is, I highly recommend watching this season's episodes.

I actually liked him better when he was bigger.

I think guys who have real bodies are much sexier than skinny fellas. Think Hollywood puts too much pressure on men as well as women to be thin.

I think men who have "real" bodies are sexy.

What's wrong with someone being a little bigger?

Isn't it illegal to film at the Grove?? Since I assume you didn't ask them to shoot inside...

is that Ronald McDonald
(cultivating mass)


Rob McElhenney has stated in interviews that he wanted to make Mac fat as his own way of fighting the trend of actors on TV shows getting more attractive as a show gains more success.

Rob is pretty funny, but I think Charlie Day makes the cake. I could never gain 50 pounds though so props to him! favorite quote from Always Sunny http://bitly.com/HRcWwk - I never have missed an episode :D
