Blobbie Williams: Portly Robbie enjoys a game of golf in LA

Comments He used to be lean, mean and hungry for success. Now, it seems, he's just hungry.
That, at least, could be one explanation for Robbie Williams's growing girth.
The singer, who is taking a break from his career, was spotted practising golf at a range near his home in Los Angeles. He puffed on a cigarette as he concentrated on his best shot.
Williams, 34, disappeared from view at the end of 2006.
He now lives permanently in LA, preferring the sunshine and the relative anonymity he finds there.
The golf seems to be an attraction too. He was recently pictured playing a game with his girlfriend, Ayda Field, a 28-year-old actress.
"Robbie has made it clear he's put his showbiz life on hold," a friend said. He doesn't need to remain trim for any professional reason, so he's let himself go.
"He's also really happy with Ayda and being content can lead to weight gain."
Wearing a loose black t-shirt and white gloves, the 34-year-old looked bloated and unfit as he played a round of golf in Los Angeles with his old friend and former drummer actor Max Beesley.
Although changed by the weight he has put on, the ex-Take That member has shaved off his thick beard which made him almost unrecognisable lately.
Clean-shaven, it was clearly Robbie, albeit carrying a few more pounds than usual.
Known for his cheeky charm, Robbie has previously dated ex-All Saint Nicole Appleton and supermodel Rachel Hunter.
