Last month, Dan Stevens got a little snippy with a reporter who dared ask about his noticeable change in appearance: “Really?” he said. “OK, I suppose. There’s so much else going on in the world.” Point taken. But that did not stop us from posing the question ourselves, at an Americans for Marriage Equality event hosted by Calvin Klein and HRC earlier this week. “I’ve just started living a bit healthier since living here,” he said of his weight loss. “Also, my look needed to change for the movie I’m filming right now [A Walk Among the Tombstones with Liam Neeson]. It all sort of happened at once. It’s quite fun to have a bit of a change. I’ve given up drinking, and I’m just eating a lot healthier.” And what about the facial hair? “Does that come from not drinking?” Stevens responded. “It’s for the role.” Case closed.
