Dennis Quid gains 35 pounds to play Bill Clinton in new film

New York: Dennis Quid has gained extra weight to play President Bill Clinton in HBO`s forthcoming film, ``The Special Relationship.``

The actor said he ate at McDonalds for the extra calories he needed.

“I gained 35 pounds for the role,” a news daily quoted the actor as telling a website.

He added: “I could have worn a suit to enhance my weight, but I didn’t want to go that route. I did it the way he did: I went to McDonald`s every day.

“Well, it`s different when you`re doing it for work. You feel like a baby on a feeding schedule.”
