LOOK: ‘Spider-Man’ star Jacob Batalon reveals transformed, fit body on birthday
Fil-Am actor Jacob Batalon marked his birthday with a mirror selfie that showed off his trim figure.
The “Spider-Man” star, who plays Peter Parker’s BFF Ned Leeds in the latest Marvel movies, surprised fans with a photo of him wearing a brown jacket and no shirt underneath on his birthday last Friday, Oct. 9, as seen on his Instagram account.
“[By] the way, while I appreciate the concern, people can stop telling me to lose weight now,” the 24-year-old wrote.
Just days before, he posted a photo from 2019 that showed his figure prior to the weight loss. When one Instagram user noted he’d be “swimming” in his old jacket, he replied, “HAAAAA you right.”
Batalon first shared his weight transformation in August, with fans noticing that he had slimmed down.
The Hawaii-based actor is expected to make a return in “Spider-Man 3.” JB
