Karl Urban: 'Dredd' Photo Call & 'Men's Health UK' Feature!

Karl Urban suits up for a photo call to promote his new film Dredd on Monday (September 3) at the Hotel ME in Madrid, Spain.

The 40-year-old actor is featured in the October 2012 issue of Men’s Health UK dishing on how he trained for 12 weeks to get into the best shape of his life.

“Oh God, it was grueling. I had 12 weeks of insane physical exercise to reach the condition that I wanted to be in. That was cardio, lifting weights in the gym daily and eating six or seven times a day,” Karl said.

Even though he built a ton of muscle for the film, it had to be hid away in a bodysuit he wears for the bulk of the flick.

“That’s the craziest thing. I wear the suit for basically the whole film so you don’t get to f**king see it! But it was important for me to be in shape, firstly because it was very taxing making such a physically full-on film and also so that I would really feel like the character. I wanted to be muscular in a svelte, functional way,” Karl added. Make sure to pick up a copy of the issue on newsstands or as a digital edition for the full interview!
