A warning to all those Michael Weatherly fans out there: There’s a lot less of him to love these days.
The NCIS star took the summer off his top-rated drama to shed a whopping 35 lbs. from his 6′ 2″ frame. The actor told PEOPLE that he got so heavy that he “split five pairs of pants” during season 11.
“Here’s the skinny,” joked Weatherly, 46, who plays Anthony DiNozzo on the CBS series.
“I have two very small children, ages 2½ and 1 year old. That means I had been living with a pregnant lady for a long time. While my wife [Bojana Jankovic] never gave in too much to her Nutella craving, we weren’t doing too much. And I found it very hard to say to my wife and children [Olivia and Liam] that I need to spend a couple of hours on me. And the job was demanding.”
