Sam Claflin Takes a Giant Fan Selfie in Italy!

Sam Claflin grins as he strikes a pose on the blue carpet at the Giffoni Film Festival on Thursday (July 21) in Salerno, Italy.

The 30-year-old English actor’s latest film, Me Before You, premiered at the festival and will hit Italian theaters on September 1.

Before receiving the Giffoni Experience Award at the event, Sam offered some advice to the audience.

“We must think of our choices as opportunities,” he told the crowd. “My mom says that when I played football I was too dramatic to become a professional, and she was right. You must follow your dreams without caring [about] criticism or what other people think of you”.

Sam was spotted hugging excited fans and even posted a selfie with them.

“Crazy scenes, but thank everyone, from the bottom of my heart for one of the most amazing experiences today,” he captioned the Instagram pic below. “I am honoured and privileged to have been a part of something so special. … To everyone who travelled far, and to all of those of you who camped out, bless you. Thank you. You make me me. And you make me happy.

Sam Claflin Posts Ripped Shirtless Photo, Reveals How He Lost Over 40 Pounds!

Sam Claflin has shared a new photo of himself shirtless and showing off his ripped physique on the set of his new movie Me Before You, in theaters now.

“I had to get myself in peak physical condition to play Will before the accident, and that came along with at least one long and hard daily session in the gym and a very strict diet, with little sleep,” the 29-year-old actor, best known for his role as Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games movies, captioned the photo on Instagram.

“It was important for me to show the distinct differences between him before and after the accident, not only emotionally and mentally, but physically too. I shed over 3 stone [roughly 42 pounds] in the three months I was training, and honestly pushed my personal limits,” Sam added. “A lot of people struggle with every day life, and do it alone, I was fortunate to have a wonderful support network around me, guiding me through the process step by step. I’m not saying I’m a hero. I’m merely saying I found it tough and therefore appreciate what other people go through.”

“I’m an actor. I do what I can to make each part I play as believable as I can. To play it honestly. And truthfully. And hope people invest within that character,” Sam continued. “The two sides of Will, are of course just one person, but I believe we are all made up of many different versions of ourselves. A lot of us haven’t been tested the way Will has, but something as life-changing as that, will affect people differently. Every person is different. Everyone deals with circumstance and situation differently. And everyone should be able to make choices in life without judgement or comment. This film is Wills journey. Enjoy your journey.”

Sam Claflin Reveals Sex of Baby, Father's Day Plans, & More!

Sam Claflin‘s wife Laura gave birth to the couple’s first child back in December, and he just revealed that the little one is a baby boy!

“I’m filming so much at the moment, I don’t get the opportunity to spend as much time with him as I’d like to,” the 29-year-old Me Before You star told People. “So I think after Me Before You finishes – which is just before Father’s Day – I will have a bit of family time.”

He said of his plans, “Just with the little man. I don’t know what to expect – I have no expectations. I’ve never had that to look forward to before.”

“I always thought, na├»vely, that I knew what it would be like. I always thought that I’d understand. [But when he was] born, it’s like another level of love that you’ve never experienced before – [that] you can’t describe to someone unless [they're] in it…The rewards are just endless. He’s literally the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

Sam did not reveal the name of his son.

Me Before You opens in theaters on June 3.
