Peter Jackson lost 70 pounds

December 7, 2005—Peter Jackson has gone from a giant gorilla to a hunky monkey. The “King Kong” and “Lord of the Rings” director shed 70 pounds while shooting the monster movie remake by eating a strict diet of yogurt and muesli, getting little sleep and working around the clock, sometimes putting in 21-hour days.

“It’s already been dubbed the “Skull Island Diet” by the diet Web site, named after the, tortuous jungle where King Kong was born.”
