Olivia Wilde couldn't lose weight on Tron: Legacy

Olivia Wilde was instructed not to gain weight on 'Tron: Legacy' because her character only had one outfit.

So you couldn't say, 'Oh, they'll get me another one. Maybe they can let this out a little at the seams.' So there was a certain dedication to the suit, a relationship that we had to have with our suits, both good and bad.

The 'House' actress - who portrays Quorra in the Joseph Kosinski-directed sci-fi movie - was told her form-fitting costume could not have ay alterations so no weight gain or loss was allowed for the duration of the shoot.

She said: "The thing about these costumes is that they don't stretch. So certainly once we had our last fitting it was like, 'Okay. This is the size of the costume now.' Just so you know it can't change. It's not like we can do a little adjustment on this one. Each suit was a sculpture. It was such an intricate piece of craftsmanship.

However she did manage to stay in shape for the four months of the movie's shooting "until the last second" and didn't need any changes.

She said: "Over four months of working you fluctuate physically and of course you train and train and train for a movie and then once you actually start doing the movie you don't have time to train. Luckily I survived and was able to stay in that suit just until the last second."
