Here’s what the 34-year-old Sons of Anarchy actor had to share with the mag:
On why he left Fifty Shades of Grey: “I was going to finish playing a psychopath who’d just lost his wife, and five days later I’d be on set playing Christian Grey. I was like, ‘This is going to be a f—ing disaster.’ It was the opposite of how I’ve tried to ground my career, not stretch myself too thin, and always do my homework.”
On his workout regime: “I go into the gym and do 75 pull-ups, 75 dips, 150 squats, 150 pushups, and then 20 minutes of ab work. Done. It takes an hour; I’m in and out. I sweat the whole time.”
On why he works out: “I work out more for the mental than the physical aspect. I can get slightly dark when I’m not keeping a routine. It’s all about feeling healthy and energetic.”
