Meat Loaf feels sorry for women with large breasts.

The musician-turned-actor won several awards for his performance in the 1999 film Fight Club, also starring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt.

While playing Bob, a role which required him to wear a fat suit, Meat Loaf developed sympathy for well-endowed women.

"Those things were made of flaxseed, and weighed 28 pounds," Meat Loaf told Q magazine.

"Now when I see women with large breasts I feel sorry for them."

The star joked that the only upside to playing Bob, a former bodybuilder diagnosed with testicular cancer, is that he won several awards for his portrayal.

Meat Loaf insists he persevered with his heavy costume on set.

"The character was supposed to be 26 years old and I was close to 50 when I made that movie," he said. "[The director, David] Fincher does a lot of takes, and after the 40th take Fincher said, 'Can you do this run or do we need to put a stunt man in?' But I refused to let him use a stuntman. I did the run."

It wasn't the first time Meat Loaf suffered for his art.

In 1978, he tripped over a cable during a performance in Ottawa, Canada, and tore the ligaments in his knee.

"I had to perform the next few shows in a wheelchair," he said.
