The 50-year-old actor is a healthy eater. He indulges in his cravings but he generally eats healthily. For one, he loves oatmeal and not the instant kind. “That [instant oatmeal] is no way to live your life, young man,” said the actor in an interview. He then talked about his healthy upbringing: “Well, first of all, I didn’t grow up with that. Everything was khaki-colored. The only time we got sugary cereal was when my mom went away for the weekend and she bought us Frosted Flakes because she wanted us to behave. Otherwise, we were eating shredded wheat, granola, or Grape Nuts.” Nonetheless, he admits being crazy about peanut M&M’s.
