Aaron Scwartz, Heavyweights

Walt Disney Company; IMDB

Aaron Schwartz has definitely grown up since his fat-camp days in fan-fave movie Heavyweights. And boy has time worked in his favor. The 34-year-old has dropped those pounds and is now smoking hot!

It's been 20 years since the classic Disney movie hit theaters, and Schwartz is almost unrecognizable! The heartthrob actor even had to re-introduce himself to his on-screen dad Jeffrey Tambor after running into him in New York.

In honor of the Heavyweights anniversary, The Huffington Post sat down with Schwartz and caught up with what the hunk is up to today.

Schwartz described what it was like to work on set with Judd Apatow, who was only in his mid-20s at the time. "Just watching that guy work. It was incredible," he explained. "You could tell when you watch a guy that they're gonna make something of themselves."

He also dished on what it was like working with Ben Stiller, who played the neurotic camp coordinator we all grew to love. "He's almost like a method actor," says Schwartz." "He was hilarious when he was filming but in between takes he would pump weights, run around in circles, mad dog people. He was stuck in this character." If only Ben Stiller was our camp counselor, maybe summer camp would have been a lot more fun.

The Mighty Ducks actor returned to work after taking a 10-year hiatus, appearing in Guiding Light and Gossip Gitl. Schwartz's next project is a sci-fi indie movie he'll be filming in New Mexico.

While we're having a flashback, watch this clip of Will Smith in 1994:
