The 56-year-old actor makes an effort to stick to a clean diet but he’s not one to deprive himself of food. He doesn’t really follow any special diet for losing weight. He just tries his best to eat as healthily as possible with lean proteins, whole grains, and fruits and vegetables. In an interview, he got candid about his eating habits. When asked what you can always find in his fridge, he said: “Soy milk, because my daughter has a severe milk allergy; Diet Coke; and strawberries.” As for his guilty pleasures, he loves a great burger and he always craves his mom’s lasagna.
