Jamie Campbell Bower attends a screening of The Selfish Giant on Thursday (October 24) at BT Tower in London, England.
The 24-year-old actor chatted with Metro at the screening about the increasing pressure for men to be sexy.
“I think, possibly within the next ten years, we’re going to hear a lot more men talking about (the pressure to look good),” Jamie said. “The last movie I did, The Mortal Instruments, when I got the role I was out of shape and I had to get in shape. Putting it that way makes it sound simple, well it is. But with that comes self-criticism and it does get difficult.”
“Obviously there’s a pressure on men as well to look a certain way and to be big or muscular. When they’re not it’s like, ‘Oh my God Leonardo DiCaprio’s gotten fat’ and it’s like, do you know what, he’s not he’s not going to be a 17-year-old boy forever,” he added.
FYI: Jamie is wearing Burberry.
