Matt Bomer stopped by last night's TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON and talked about losing, and regaining, a lot of weight for his role in the upcoming HBO film The Normal Heart. "I fasted for 21 days and then went on an extremely regimented diet consisting of about 300 calories a day," Bomer explained, to which Fallon quipped, "That's two bites of my lunch!"
