To become a credible bodybuilder on the silver screen, an actor must put in the necessary work. No questions asked. They need to push themselves in the gym, leaving no dumbbell or loaded barbell unturned. Then, with their body at its absolute limit, they must maintain impeccable discipline in the kitchen – sculpting an amazing body through a controlled and focused nutritional plan. That appears to be the road map followed by Jonathan Majors for his latest feature film, “Magazine Dreams,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 20, 2023.
On January 21, 2023, a short video interview with Majors and other cast members of “Magazine Dreams” appeared on different website. Among some of the most famous news, the superstar actor revealed that he eats 6,100 calories a day. for four consecutive months to transform into fictional amateur bodybuilder Killian Maddox. It’s an illuminating insight into a professional who seems to pull out all the stops to give due respect to a challenging game. A video interview with Deadline Hollywood below are the Majors who further discuss the aspects of his preparation process.
The reason that Majors ate it and remained committed to his role seems to be quite simple: he wanted his playing Maddox to be believable in the context of the famous difficulties of bodybuilding. In addition, after training to transform the future boxer Damian “Dame” Anderson in Creed III – which was released in the United States on Mar. 3, 2023 – Majors’ transition to another athletic on-screen role appears to be endless. .
“I’m 6 feet tall. I’m 202 pounds,” Majors said different. “To maintain that and grow that, you have to eat as much protein as you weigh. I ate 6,100 calories a day for about four months.”
As for how he actually trained, Majors stuck to his guns. As a performer known for diving in his gigs, the man with a high-level athletic background noted that he was once again front and center for “Magazine Dreams.”
“The normal bodybuilder works out twice a day,” Majors explained different. “I’m playing Killian Maddox. … Playing him is not yours [expletive] environment. What happened was, I would train for two hours, twice a day for the movie, and a third time after wrapping. [at the end of the filming day]. Meanwhile, you eat six times a day. Lots of chicken. Lots of elk, just for me. I like it.”
In an era of CGI-filled film, it’s understandably easy when a performer just goes through the motions to portray an on-screen bodybuilder. For Majors, as a ripped fictional fitness titan and physically dominant boxer, staying dedicated seems to be the norm. In this run, he could develop a reputation as an actor who uses his whole body to tell any given story.
