Fat Suits Can Be Hazardous To Health

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Former 8 Simple Rules star Kaley Cuoco just finished playing the most challenging role of her life – a fat chick.

Cuoco plays a popular girl who dons a fat suit for a high school project in the new movie To Be Fat Like Me, and says the role took a toll on her health – literally.

She says she got claustrophobic wearing the 250-pound suit, especially after sitting in a makeup chair for four hours a day.

That made her eat more to get over the stress.

In fact, Cuoco says she was so stressed out as a fattie that she had numerous panic attacks on the set and had to stop filming.

Says Cuoco: “It was so sweaty and awful. They had to make a hole in my crotch and put a vacuum up it to cool me off – there wasn’t a day in makeup where I didn’t cry.”

She says her panic attacks got so out of control that a crew member bought her a stress ball so she could focus her attention on something other than her fake blubber.

To Be Fat Like Me, which also stars Biggest Loser host Caroline Rhea, premieres January 8 on Lifetime.
