Tyler Perry smolders in fit pic taken in September before surgery recovery made him gain 12lbs

Tyler Perry posted a smoldering throwback snap to Instagram this week offering his fans a glimpse at his fitness journey.

The 52-year-old wore a tank top that flaunted his musclebound arms in a mirror selfie he revealed was snapped in September.

However he revealed that he had put on 12 pounds in the intervening time because of a torn meniscus that required him to have surgery.

‘I took this picture this past September around my 52nd birthday. I was killing it in the gym,’ the Don’t Look Up star dished.

‘Right after that I tore my meniscus and was told I needed surgery. I’ve gained about 12 lbs since then,’ Tyler revealed.

‘I was so close to my goal, but now I feel like I’m starting over,’ confessed the Madea’s Family Reunion superstar.

‘All of that to say, sometimes life will set you back, but as long as you have a breath in your body, you have to keep fighting.’

Tyler assured the public: ‘I’ll get it back when I recover. Happy New Year! Let’s get after it in 2022. Who’s with me? #willsmiththebestshapeofmylife.’

The hashtag was a plug for a new documentary that showed Will Smith embarking on the task of dropping 20lbs in as many weeks.

Meanwhile Tyler’s latest movie is Don’t Look Up, Adam McKay’s new comedy starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence as scientists. 

The two leads discover a comet is about to destroy the planet and try to inform the president played by Meryl Streep who is a parody of Donald Trump.

Because the president ignores their warnings the scientists set off on a media blitz – and Tyler plays a talk-show host who interviews them.

Tyler recently told the website Beautiful Ballad that he sought advice from Michael Strahan and Joe Scarborough on how to play his part.

‘As fun as that was in that moment, I actually made a couple phone calls to a couple of people who are on morning shows right now, that I admire. Joe Scarborough is one and Michael Strahan is the other,’ he shared.

‘I sent them part of the script. I said: “Why don’t you read this and send it back to me on-on your iPhone? Just tape it.” And they did, and I was like, okay, I got some bits here, I got some bits there,’ Tyler revealed.

‘But those guys are professional journalists. This guy I played is not that. They were very helpful in pulling that off and helping me to pull that off.’
