In April 2014, Aaron told ABC News he was determined to drop some 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 film The Blind Side, he called the episode on the airplane a humiliating experience. At 6 feet 8 inches tall and 550 pounds, he usually 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 utilizing the experience to speed up his plans to slim down.

I grew up in the church. I was raised in the church.
I do believe in sending positive messages. I am a Christian, so I do believe in a lot of positive messages.
Being a fan of the business for years and wanting to be an actor for years, I knew, if ever the opportunity came for me, I would already know what to expect. I know what comes along with it. The best thing I can do is take it all in and go with the flow.
If I have to degrade myself or do something that I'm not willing to do as a Christian to get something, I'm just not willing to do it.
I like to be someone else. I like to be someone other than myself. I grew up watching movies and being a fan of what I'd seen portrayed in the movies, and I always wanted to do that one day.
I feel like if I live the Christian life, then the people should be able to see it in my everyday actions.
Having a chance to be someone other than yourself and to act out stuff that makes people look at you, like, wow, and that's why I love acting so much.
Growing up, I was not used to good things happening to me.
On being groomed to play a football player in 'The Blind Side' I had two-a-day workouts, seven days a week, on the football field and then I had to lose weight, which meant if it tastes good it's not good for you. So I couldn't eat it.
