May 25, 2015 witnessed the long-awaited premiere of the film The Normal Heart, directed by Ryan Murphy and based on the play by Larry Kramer.
The play tells about the beginning of the AIDS epidemic in the US, the indifference of the authorities to this problem and the people who first started talking loudly about the tragedy.
In the center of the story is the writer Ned Weeks and his partner, journalist Felix Turner. The role of Ned was performed by actor Mark Ruffalo (this was his first homosexual role in the career), Felix was played by Matt Bomer – who is an open gay.
American actor Matt Bomer, who received the Golden Globe statuette for his secondary role in the television drama The Ordinary Heart, admitted that he had dropped more than 18 kilograms for the sake of filming.
Bomer’s character, Felix, becomes one of the first victims of AIDS, and Ned – his loving partner – goes through all hell to find out why no one in the government wants to deal with this problem. For more realistic picturing, Bomer had to lose up to 40 pounds (more than 18 kilograms).
The process of losing weight took from Bomer just over three months. Firstly, he underwent detox procedure under the supervision of doctors in a special clinic: during 14 days he drank only water, juices and special teas. At the second stage the actor had really hard time because losing so much weight is not an easy task.
The actor also took vitamins and was engaged in the gym, but not very intensively. Back home, Bomer practically did not eat anything.
Matt stopped checking his weight when he lost 15 kilograms. After this mark, the figures were already not important.
