Mehcad Brooks Reveals His Girlfriend's Reaction to His 'Mortal Kombat' Body Transformation

Mehcad Brooks‘ incredibly buff body is on display throughout his new movie Mortal Kombat and he’s opening up about how his body transformation affected his relationship.

The 40-year-old actor, who is best known for his roles on True Blood and Supergirl, made an appearance on The Talk on Friday (April 23) to talk about the film.

“I went from eating vegan to eating a small organic farm, more or less,” Mehcad said about preparing to play Jax. “I was doing boxing training five days a week and I think the one thing about gaining that much weight that fast, I gained 45 pounds…your jaw hurts because you’re chewing, you’re processing so much food.”

Mehcad added, “I was gaining weight so fast, I was like falling up the stairs. I was super clumsy. None of my clothes fit. It was too much too fast.”

Co-host Elaine Welteroth asked, “How did your girlfriend feel about that transformation for yours?”

“In some ways she hated it because I guess I’m not as a calm sleeper as I thought I was. So, I’d roll over on her, but I was the size of a baby elephant… she was like ‘get off of me…I can’t breathe, you’re on me’…It was like wearing a muscle suit,” he replied.

'Mortal Kombat' Movie Releases Official Trailer - Watch!

The Mortal Kombat trailer is here!

The Simon McQuoid-directed New Line Cinema movie, inspired by the smash hit video game franchise, is hitting theaters nationwide on April 16, and will be available in the U.S. on HBO Max for 31 days from theatrical release.

Here’s a plot summary: “MMA fighter Cole Young, accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage—or why Outworld’s Emperor Shang Tsung has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down. Fearing for his family’s safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana—the immense power from within his soul—in time to save not only his family, but to stop Outworld once and for all?”

The cast includes Lewis Tan as Cole Young, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh Lawson as Kano, Tadanobu Asano as Lord Raiden, Mehcad Brooks as Jackson “Jax” Bridges, Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Joe Taslim as Bi-Han and Sub-Zero and Hiroyuki Sanada as Hanzo Hasashi and Scorpion.
