Adam Sandler's on-screen movie daughter, teenage newcomer Sarah Steele, had to wear a fatsuit for reshoots on the set of their upcoming film SPANGLISH because she'd lost the 17 pounds (7.7 kilograms) she gained for her role.

The young actress gorged on soda and burgers to gain the weight in just two-and-a-half weeks and started to lose weight as soon as filming wrapped.

But problems started when director James L Brooks called her back for reshoots.

She says, "I put a lot of it back on but I had the fatsuit."

Steele admits she had some family help to gain and lose the weight - her father's a nutritionist.

She adds, "There are easy things you can do like soda that's just like empty calories going right on and then, of course, McDonalds.

"My dad's a nutritionist so I knew I could do it and then get it off."
