“There’s an aesthetic that the role requires,” Chris told The Telegraph. “Bodybuilding is seen as vanity, whereas if I put on a bunch of unhealthy weight, or got unhealthily skinny for a role, I’d probably be called a serious actor.”

“The training across 10 years of doing it is a full-time job. That and then a 12-hour shooting day — it’s a real grind,” he added. “It’s incredibly rewarding, too — you have to look at it like a professional athlete.”

If you don’t know, there are some actors like lauded star Tom Hanks who have lost and gained weight for roles over the years. Tom recently revealed the impact that has had on his physical health.
