Sara Rue underwent a total body transformation in 2012, losing over 50 pounds on Jenny Craig and eventually becoming a blonde -- so you can imagine how intimately she related to her character in the new movie, Dorfman in Love.
Co-starring Elliott Gould, Johann Urb and Sophie Monk, Dorfman in Love tells the story of a young single suburbanite unknowingly trapped in her role as caretaker of her unappreciative family, who desperately needs to get her own life. But when she volunteers to cat sit at her unrequited love's downtown L.A loft, her world as she knows it changes forever. In seven days, she meets another man who appreciates her and she not only transforms the mess of a loft but also transforms the mess of herself. Her journey of self-discovery leads her to find her true love.
Check out ETonline's exclusive sneak peek at Dorfman in Love, which opens on March 22.
