Chunk From The Goonies Grew Up and Got Fit — See Him Now! (PHOTOS)

Jeff Cohen may forever be known in the pop culture canon as Chunk, the chubby little kid in The Goonies famous for his "Truffle Shuffle," but in real life, that's not so much the case. He looks completely different — and not just because he's all grown up!

If for some reason you don't remember Jeff in The Goonies, let's recap: The Steven Spielberg and Chris Columbus classic from 1985 — also starring Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Corey Feldman, and Kerri Green — follows a group of pre-teens who live in the "Goon Docks" neighborhood of Astoria, Oregon, who set out on a "Goonie adventure."

Since their homes face foreclosure, the group bands together to find lost pirate treasure and, hopefully, to save their houses. Little do they know that the abandoned restaurant that seems to match the treasure's location is being used as a hideout for a family of outlaws. In one of the most iconic and memorable scenes of the film, Chunk is locked in a room with Sloth, a disfigured member of the outlaw family… and, bonding over a Baby Ruth bar, they fall into friendship-love.

All caught up now? Good. Need to see what Jeff looks like now? We got you. Click through to see him now!
