Jerry O'Connell's mother will chase you down if you call him fat

Jerry O’Connell looks every bit the slender fella now, but that wasn’t always the case. As a young kid, he starred in the 1986 movie “Stand By Me” as Vern Tessio. He was the chubby kid from the hit movie, but don’t let his mother hear us say that!

Page Six reports:

Hunky actor Jerry O’Connell says fans are fixated on his portly childhood.

“Jerry was talking about how people still call out — ‘Hey, you’re the fat kid from ‘Stand by Me,’ ” said a spy at the Slipper Room when O’Connell went onstage with comic Seth Herzog during a stand-up routine.

The actor added that if he’s with his mother, “she’ll chase down strangers to come to his defense and be like, ‘Sir, my son isn’t fat!’”

I highly doubt people are really making fun of Jerry these days. What do you think?
