What does body building mean to you?
From a young age, I’ve just always felt that men who build their bodies could become somebody.

You now have the body and the looks, so how do you go about seducing a woman?
The body does get the attention of women. But as far as seduction is concerned, I have done a multitude of things to get the attention of women; some charming, some absurd, some ridiculous and some sweet. But I’ve found that the best thing to do is just be direct and honest. Say something simple like “you look beautiful” or “I’d like to talk to you, what’s your name”. That’s a good approach.

What is your workout regime?
I train every day, five days a week, and generally, very early in the morning. If I have a shoot, then I get up between 3am and 4am to train. Then I have my breakfast and go on the set. On the days that I am not shooting, I’ll get up between 5am and 6am and work out. It anchors my day and allows me to get into a Zen-like space that emanates peace and quiet; it’s my meditation. It is just a way to get away from everything for that brief moment.

What about your diet?
I eat a lot, but I try to find a balance of protein, carbohydrates, fats and greens in every meal. I probably have anywhere between 6,000 to 8,000 calories a day. I know it’s a lot, but I’m never full. Instead, I’m always hungry! (smiles)
The guys in your recently released film Pain and Gain are obsessed with their looks and physique, what is your relationship to that aspect of body building?
Body building is a very fascinating culture, where body builders—be it amateurs or professionals—are extremely disciplined and their world consists of eating and sleeping and working out. It’s a crazy, crazy world. They find their own comfort in the world of body building. Personally, I enjoy the training and workout, but it’s not necessary to be a big, muscular guy.
As one grows older, the body ages too. So what are you doing differently after turning 40?
I train smarter and try to educate myself about everything I eat. A side from knowing what to eat, I keep a check on when I’m eating it. So I have hired a great diet conditioning coach who is very knowledgeable and helps me understand what certain foods do and what they don’t. It helps not only while I’m preparing for various roles, but also in between roles.
