Weight Loss

In April 2014, Aaron told ABC News he was determined to lose weight after being booted from a U.S. Airways flight for taking up too much room. While Quinton Aaron's size was an asset in playing Michael Oher in the movie The Blind Side, he called the incident on the plane a humiliating experience. At 6 feet 8 inches tall and 550 pounds, he normally flies first class, but on a connecting flight between Philadelphia and Rochester, N.Y., there weren't any first class seats available, so he needed two economy seats. Another passenger arrived to occupy that second seat and Aaron had to be re-booked on another flight. Instead of getting upset, Aaron said he's using the experience to speed up his plans to lose weight.
