Jesse Plemons’ Weight Loss: See ‘Love and Death’ Actor’s Body Transformation Over the Years

Actor Jesse Plemons has gone through plenty of transformations throughout his long career, including several periods of gaining weight for roles while dropping pounds for other parts.

Jesse first gained notoriety on NBC’s small-town football drama Friday Night Lights, where he sported an athletic build. He gained 45 pounds in 2015 for the mafia drama Black Mass.
“Everyone’s like, ‘You gained all this weight!’ I was like, ‘No, I’ve been fat for a while now,’” Jesse recalled in 2016.
He added, “I had lost a little bit of weight at the Fargo premiere, and I remember this guy, like, ‘What’s your secret to losing the weight? Tell us!’ I was like, ‘Well, I was eating everything, and then I just stopped eating terrible food.’ It’s not too complicated.”

Jesse lost a noticeable amount of weight in 2023 and put his transformation on display while walking the 2024 Oscars red carpet.
