Trimming the Fat out of the Movie

Last month I took a trip to the aesthetic clinic in Orchard for a fat removal treatment. The treatment used a cold tool to apply cold temperatures to the areas of my body where I wanted to remove the fat. The reason I was doing this was because a friend of mine asked me to be in a movie and I had to play the role of a bully on the beach. He wanted me to walk up to one of the characters and kick a sand castle that they built. Since the scene was on a beach setting, I had to film it in swimming trunks with no shirt on, which meant that my stomach would be exposed.

Normally I wouldn’t really care about having my shirt off at the beach, but since this was going to be for a movie, I didn’t want to look fat on camera. They say that the camera adds 10 pounds, so the bit of fat on my stomach would have looked even worse after filming. I thought about exercising the fat off, but it would have taken too much time for me to do it before the shooting of the scene. I also didn’t want to get liposuction done because it would have probably left some noticeable marks on my body that wouldn’t have gone away in time.

The treatment worked perfectly, and when I went to shoot the scene for my friend, he was surprised to see that I didn’t have the same fat on my stomach that I usually have. He thought I was sucking in my stomach at first and told me not to do it because I wouldn’t be able to hold it during the entire scene. When I told him that I wasn’t holding it in, he really couldn’t believe it.
