There is no definite answer as to whether Ethan Suplee used steroids. However, there are some indications that he may have resorted to using performance-enhancing drugs for bulking up for his roles in films such as “American History X” and “Remember the Titans.”
Some people believe that Ethan Suplee may have used steroids because of the dramatic changes in his body composition over a relatively short period. However, another indication that he may have taken steroids is that he has openly spoken about using banned substances such as Human Growth Hormone (HGH) in the past.
I found nothing to prove that Ethan Suplee used steroids or if he even had anything to do with HGH aside from being interviewed about it years ago with no current updates since then. Additionally, he doesn’t seem to have any web presence focused on steroid use or his influence on steroid use. However, the question is valid because he has made some dramatic physical changes.
Ethan Suplee’s Stats (current) Height: 5′ 8″ Weight: 165 pounds Body Fat % Estimation (using 3 Point Density):
- 7-10% (He certainly isn’t obese or even overweight, but he doesn’t look like a lean bodybuilder either.)
- Ethan Suplee’s Stats (pre-2000) Height: 5′ 8″ Weight: 150-160 pounds Body Fat % Estimation (using 3 Point Density): 10-12%
The transformation is pretty drastic, so it does raise questions if he had anabolic steroids in mind when he chose roles. The information surrounding the change is also an issue. We don’t know what he did precisely, so the results could easily be attributed to hard work and good nutrition.
However, I would like to point out that his height hasn’t changed much. That’s significant because it’s easier to tell when someone gets taller than seeing them change their body weight or body fat percentage. Conversely, I think it takes less time for people to lose weight than gain it (and vice versa). So, if he gained 20 pounds in 2 years and lost 25 pounds over four years, suddenly we have a very unrealistic physique transformation scenario within 6-7 years of each other depending on where you start the timeline from since his first movie role. That doesn’t add up.
So, I think there’s a good chance Ethan Suplee did use steroids or performance-enhancing drugs to get his physique to the level it is now. However, without any concrete evidence, it cannot be confirmed.
