Don't be so hard on the guy; we were all thinner at one time and younger, too. And don't be too hard on actors, either. John Wayne was never a marine, a cowboy, a cavalry officer or any of the other characters he usually played. He was just a good actor. But he was also older than my father, who was drafted at the age of 27 or 28 (Wayne was 34). But many Hollywood (that's how it's spelled) actors went off to war, something not done so much anymore. Even Michael Caine served in Korea in the infantry. Not sure if any WWII veterans who were actors are still around.
