We have always heard that some actors/actresses have been told to gain weight for the specific roles they have to play – but we have never heard of them actually enjoying putting on the weight.

Beyonce was told to gain 20 pounds to play the role of Etta James in the upcoming movie drama ‘Cadillac Records’. She told British magazine Marie Claire that gaining the weight “was so much fun”. Yet, she was told for her next role in ‘Obsessed’ that she had to lose the weight. “I had to lose it,” she laments. “I was so angry with myself. I was like, ‘D’oh! Why do you have to go through this?'”

The singer also opens up about her onstage alter ego, “Sasha,” adding that there are “things I do when performing I would never do normally.” As “Sasha,” she says, “I have out-of-body experiences. If I cut my leg, if I fall, I don’t even feel it. I’m so fearless, I’m not aware of my face or my body.”
