Oscar-winner Adrien Brody says his transformation into a muscleman came after he prepared for his role in Predators by living in the jungle, exercising every day and giving up sex.
The Pianist star, who plays buff Royce in the film, told a magazine: “I studied a lot of military manuals, paramilitary books and isolated myself in the jungle.
I was training and dieting six days a week. Very heavy weights and high-rep circuit training was the key along with hundreds of push-ups a day. I was eating the right things obsessively.”
But why give up sex? He said: “Look at fighters and people that are training for something that requires that level of intensity. I was doing everything in my power to harness ferocity and I felt that I need to keep away from all the distractions and all the things that…erm… drain you, if you know what I mean?”
