Aaron Schwartz has definitely grown up since his fat-camp days in fan-fave movie Heavyweights. And boy has time worked in his favor. The 34-year-old has dropped those pounds and is now smoking hot! It's been 20 years since the classic Disney movie hit theaters, and Schwartz is almost unrecognizable! The heartthrob actor even had to re-introduce himself to his on-screen dad Jeffrey Tambor after running into him in New York. In honor of the Heavyweights anniversary, The Huffington Post sat down with Schwartz and caught up with what the hunk is up to today. Schwartz described what it was like to work on set with Judd Apatow, who was only in his mid-20s at the time. "Just watching that guy »
It's hard to believe it's been over 20 years since we had "the best damn summer of our lives," thanks to "Heavyweights." To celebrate the movie's big milestone, Huffington Post tracked down Aaron Schwartz -- and wow, does he look different! The now-34-year-old actor, who played Gerry in the funny flick and Karp in "Mighty Ducks," stepped away from acting as a teen but has since made his return to the big screen. "I did 'Pete & Pete' after 'Heavyweights.' I was working since the time I was 10 until I was 16. It got to the point where I was like, 'I need a break. I need to visit family out in Israel and relax,' and it turned into 10 years," he told the outlet. "So when I got back into it, I did 'Guiding Light,' which was a soap opera just recently canceled.

Chicago – He’s not a household name, but he has certainly rocked a few houses…with laughter. Writer/director Paul Feig has a new film called “Spy,” in which he re-teams with two of the supporting cast of his “Bridesmaids” romp, Melissa McCarthy and Rose Byrne. “Spy” opens on Friday, June 5th.
“Spy” is a perfect tonic to today’s super serious movies depicting undercover chicanery. McCarthy portrays Susan, a ex-teacher-turned CIA desk jockey, who often is paired with superspy Bradley Fine (Jude Law). When Fine is disposed of, it is up to Susan to complete his international mission, under the disguises of cat lady and unmarried tourist. Like Feig has done in his previous films, “Spy” loves the juxtaposition of having the unlikely Melissa McCarthy as the world’s greatest operative.
