He’s an actor, singer, songwriter and former model, but cuisine is the only area in which L.A. native Tyrese Gibson is a lightweight.
Having appeared earlier this year in Legion, the hunky action star is now filming Transformers 3, which will arrive in theaters next year.
Gibson’s sleek physique reflects a 50-pound weight loss—physical baggage he had piled on several years ago after letting himself go.
Now a gym rat at 31, he has traded burgers for sustainable seafood options like striped bass.

Whether she’s playing human-turned-beast Dana Barrett in Ghostbusters, primatologist Dian Fossey in Gorillas in the Mist, badass commander Ellen Ripley in the Alien franchise or Dr. Grace Augustine in Avatar, actress Sigourney Weaver leaves an indelible image on screen.
The lithe actress, still gorgeous at 60, has finished shooting the Touchstone Pictures comedy You Again, with Kristen Bell and Betty White. The film will open in September. Weaver is also rumored to reprise her role in Ghostbusters III, set for a 2012 release.
On a recent trip to Morocco, where she was honored at the Marrakech International Film Festival, Weaver fell in love with the country’s North African cuisine, which is infused with spices like cinnamon, cumin, ginger, fennel and turmeric.
For a taste of the region’s classic dishes, you can follow Weaver’s lead and serve up an organic Cinnamon Beef Tagine, accompanied by Orange and Radish Salad with Cinnamon Vinaigrette.
