Actor Burt Ward from Television's ‘Batman’ was recently given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Director and comic book enthusiast Kevin Smith gave a speech at the ceremony along with Wards Family and colleagues
Ward later spoke with Page Six about his time as Batman’s notable sidekick. During his interview Ward mentioned how ABC studios asked him to take shrinking pills to hide his large bulge. Ward said the studio didn’t seem to have that problem with Adam West.
Ward went on to say that a doctor prescribed him pills “to shrink me up.” He didn’t take the pills for very long due to health concerns and just tried to cover everything up as best as possible.
