The actor known for his in-your-face antics is making a serious New Year’s resolution: to lose weight. Jack Black plans to cut junk food and exercise more, but he’s still keeping his sense of humor about his project to drop 50 pounds in 2011.
“I’m gonna drop fitty. I’m gonna drop fitty pounds,” Black said. He realizes that means not indulging in fast-food favorites. “How many quarter-pounders with cheeses is that? I’m gonna drop 200 quarter-pounder with cheeses.”
Black is the father of two young children, whom he says are very energy-consuming. “The more sleep I get, the better dad I am. Parenting is 90 percent energy; if you don’t have it, then there tend to be some lazy TV-watching days with the kids and that ain’t getting it done,” he said. We hope that dropping the extra pounds will help him stay up to the task of running after the little ones, who are four and two, not to mention set a healthy example for them.
