Here’s what the 36-year-old True Blood star had to share with the mag:
On advice he was given by Arnold Schwarzenegger: “We had a photoshoot for the movie [Ten] poster. I was wearing a sleeveless top, crossing my arms and flexing,” he recalls. “Arnold came in and said, ‘I see you’re flexing your biceps. Don’t do that. Keep it loose and [with crossed arms] put the other hand back to push [the muscle forward]—you’ll get an extra three inches.’”
On Arnold being a role model: “Arnie was a hero to me. He’s the reason why every guy of our generation started going to the gym. To film with him for four months was awesome. And he still trains every morning.”
