Director Kevin Smith has taken to wearing urban clothing labels, because they're the only clothes that fit his large frame.

The film-maker - who directed pal Ben Affleck and his former fiancee Jennifer Lopez in the upcoming movie JERSEY GIRL - admits he finding the right outfit can often be a chore, so he's opted for baggy hip-hop-influenced clothing.

He says, "The best place to shop for big-and-tall clothes is in urban neighbourhoods. You come out of an urban big-and-tall store looking like a pimp.

"I go on eBAY and buy FUBU clothing. I'm a fat white guy, but I'm behind FOR US BY US - if that 'us' includes dudes like myself."
