In 2016, Sam Asghari was hired to play Britney Spears’ love interest in her music video for “Slumber Party.” At the time, Sam was just starting to book bigger acting and modeling jobs and was relatively unknown to the public.
A lot has changed in the past few years, as Sam and Britney have been dating ever since — and now Sam is becoming a star in his own right.
Now, the 24-year-old fitness model is opening up about his professional and personal life. He recently went public with old photos that show he wasn’t always so sculpted, buff-bodied and confident enough to romance one of the biggest pop stars ever.
Sam was a high school athlete with big aspirations for his post-collegiate years.
But when he was cut from his college football team and lost his scholarship, he stopped exercising altogether.
However, he continued to eat like he was still the tireless athlete he used to be.
At his heaviest, Sam weighed 290 pounds and his eating habits were admittedly very poor. As he felt his career ambitions slip away, he started suffering from stress and depression.
In 2013, he decided to make some big changes and get his health back, once and for all — a decision that ultimately led him to the incredible life he has today.
