Quinton Aaron, best known as football star “Big Mike” Oher in The Blind Side, is tackling his weight problems after being booted from a flight for being too big.
The 6’8” 550 lb. actor was recently kicked off a US Airways flight bound for Rochester, N.Y., for taking up an extra economy seat. And the experience, the actor, 29, says, served as a huge wake up call. He’s now vowing to lose the weight.
With no seats in first class – his typical mode of airline transportation – the actor took up two in economy on his connecting flight from Philadelphia.
