Washington, July 4 : Matt Damon fears that his expanding waistline has put his 'Sexiest Man Alive' title in jeopardy. The actor got the title after People magazine voted him the most attractive male in the world in 2007.
But he is worried that he has lost the flattering title after piling on 40 pounds for his latest role in The Informant.
"I think I lost my (Sexiest Man Alive) title. It wasn't necessarily that I needed to be fat - it was that I needed to be 'doughy," People quoted him, as saying.
"And the star faces constant ribbing from his friends for expanding his waistline to enhance his performance," he added.
Damon's best friend Ben Affleck said: "Some things are just self-evident and don't even require making fun of. I mean, the man buys two seats on an airplane!"
