He was apparently known as a fitness buff and practiced the Wim Hof Method, which, according to their website, “is built on three pillars: breathing exercises, meditation, and exposure to cold. Together, these pillars provide you with the means to control your body.”

Jean-Marc is best known for directing and Dallas Buyers Club, which earned him an Oscar nomination. He also directed the first season of Big Little Lies, which earned him an Emmy Award and DGA Award.
