Director Peter Jackson Before and After pictures. Jackson has lost 70 pounds since 2004! The legendary director is barely recognizable on the red carpet this week buzy promoting his new flick “The Lovely Bones“. (scroll down to see his MUCH BIGGER “Before” pictures)

Jackson has been in Rome this week for the Italian premiere,  the Oscar-winning director of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy has lost 70 lbs between the early 2004 awards and the December 2005 premiere of “King Kong“. And he’s kept it off. His diet regime is eating right and working out. And he got rid of those glasses but undergoing laser surgery. - via Huffington Post

At 48, Peter looks great and I believe he could look even better if he got his hair styled properly.

The Lovely Bones” starring Mark Wahlberg, Susan Sarandon and Rachel Weisz opens in theaters in the US on December 11.

That’s fairly impressive!
