‘Sons of Anarchy’ Star Ron Perlman Shows Off Major Weight Loss Transformation

by Suzanne Halliburton

Ron Perlman is showing off his new physique as he preps for a new action movie. The Sons of Anarchy star has dropped a whopping 25 pounds.

Losing the weight was a great birthday present, too. Ron Perlman celebrated his 71st birthday last month. He posted a before and after shot earlier this month on his Instagram account. He captioned it with a quote from The Academy Grand Cayman, whose employees helped him with the weight loss.

From The Academy Grand Cayman via Ron Perlman:

“So…Whilst we have been shooting Ron Perlman in his new movie The Baker, he has also under taken a nutrition and training regime for the past 7 weeks with The Academy Grand Cayman.
During that time he has been disciplined, committed and focused on ensuring he eats clean, rests well and drinks lots of water….In that time he has lost over 20lbs WITHOUT exercising. It has been all about LIFESTYLE and making good choices…
“A big thank you must go to Nicholas Adendorff and his team at for providing his juices, smoothies and of course his Espresso Dream coffees haha.
“At 71 years of age he has made incredible progress and I’m super excited to see him take the next step on this health and fitness journey. Well done Big Ron, you’re an inspiration:)”

Ron Perlman Is In Cayman Islands For New Movie Role

The Academy Grand Cayman has since posted an update on Ron Perlman. As of Tuesday, he’s now dropped 25 pounds. That kind of weight loss can really impact the physique of someone who is 5-11. “What a difference a few good choices can make,” the Instagram post said. “What’s your excuse? Ron Perlman is now 25 lbs down in 2 months. Big thanks to chef (at Green2Go) for all your help and expertise and to Green2Go for the awesome supply of nutrients with their shakes, coffees and juices …Ron is absolutely killing it :).”

Ron Perlman is in the Grand Caymans to start filming The Retirement Plan. Deadline reported that filming begins Friday. The movie also stars Nicolas Cage, Ashley Greene, Jackie Earle Haley and Lynn Whitfield. The cast also includes Ernie Hudson, Rick Fox and Thalia Campbell, an 11-year-old in her first big role.

Perlman plays a lieutenant to Haley’s crime boss. So in order to be believable in the role, you have to look the part.

Ron Perlman first rose to fame in the 1980s, playing Vincent on the TV series Beauty and the Beast. Perlman also played Hellboy in the superhero series of movies. And he also played a vigilante motorcyclist in Sons of Anarchy.
