Talk about a heavyweight! Jamie Foxx reveals to Life & Style magazine, on newsstands now, that he will be preparing for playing the role of Mike Tyson in an upcoming biopic by “packing on the pounds.” “I’ll gain a little weight. I’ll be about 225 pounds,” the 5-foot-9 star revealed at a Jetlux and W Hotel Boston event on Sept. 15. “We have a doctor and we have a trainer, [so] we know how to gain it the right way, in increments. It’ll be muscle.”

Well, we hope his lady Katie Holmes doesn't mind the weight gain! As Life & Style previously revealed, Katie has been waiting for years to marry Jamie. But the duo is getting serious!

“Jamie recent sat down with his closest friends and told them that he plans to marry Katie and have a baby with her,” an insider exclusively revealed. Jamie, 49, has even given his 38-year-old lady a ring. “Katie has even worn the ring in front of friends,” a second source noted, “but she’s always denied that it was an engagement ring.”

Well, we hope if these two do end up tying the knot, maybe this is the perfect opportunity to get his wedding bod!
