“Magic Mike” star Alex Pettyfer is all tied up in Men’s Health UK. The 22-year-old opened up to the magazine about his future career moves and his weight gain for “Magic Mike.”
“I put on a bit of weight for this film,” he admitted. “I started off at 169 lb. and went up to 196 lb. They told me I was too big, so in the end I had to take it back down to 185 lb. When you eat and train as a sportsman I found it very enjoyable. But at the same time, it was hard, particularly at the start and I still remember not wanting to be in the gym. That’s why I don’t want to train at the moment.”
No matter his current gym schedule, the actor looks insanely muscular on the cover. Check out more photos from his Men’s Health editorial below.
