He also adopted the Mediterranean diet, eating primarily fish, vegetables, nuts, fruits, and olive oil.

John Goodman made his acting debut in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” on Broadway in 1978. He started appearing in movies in 1983, with major roles in “Arachnophobia” with Jeff Daniels and “Sea of Love” with Al Pacino. He appeared in “King Ralph” in 1991, in addition to “The Big Lebowski,” “The Artist,” and “Argo,” all of which received praise for his great acting.
