David Harbour Vows to Never Do It Again After Losing 80 Pounds for “stranger Things 4”!

For the role of Jim Hopper in the fourth season of “Stranger Things,” David Harbor shed an impressive 80 pounds, according to GQ magazine. The character (and Harbour himself) became a social media sensation thanks to their dad bods from “Stranger Things,” but Harbor wanted to portray Hopper’s imprisonment in Russia as accurately as possible, so he shed the weight. For most of “Stranger Things 4”, the character is locked up in a prison cell and isn’t eating too well.

It’s estimated that Harbour dropped 80 pounds from Season 3 to Season 4 by following an intermittent fasting and Pilates regimen. “I was about 271 [then], and when we shot Season 4 I was around 190,” he stated. “I doubt I’ll ever do something like that again.”

Following his weight loss, Harbor claimed, “I have this Santa Claus movie coming out for Universal in December (called ‘Violent Night,'”), and I gained [it all back]. However, from now on, no more. It’s impossible not to be impressed by the prostheses.”

It was during the first three seasons of “Stranger Things” that Harbour came to embrace the dad bod look, which Merriam Webster popularised by tweeting an article on the term and incorporating a video clip of Harbour dancing in the show’s opening credits (via Insider).

Soon later, Harbour revealed to CNET, “I have an odd connection with this dad bod thing. A very important factor is why I like it so much: it’s funny.” I do believe that I’ve become something of a sex icon in our day.

He went on to say, “I’ve seen articles about folks that are really into Hopper. But I’m also a little overweight and huge. The concept of seeing actual people’s bodies on television appeals to me greatly. Making real people feel beautiful and cherished is something I’m passionate about.

A new season of Stranger Things is now available to watch on Netflix.
