Actor Gerard Butler, who is known for his enviable physique, has revealed that he finds it hard to stay physically fit.
Butler, who was seen as the god of darkness in the Alex Proyas directorial “Gods of Egypt”, says he especially struggles to remain fit during the time that he is not shooting for a film.
“It was a lot of training for a few months. I’m used to it now, but there is that element at the beginning where you actually have to put down your packet of Cheetos and quit eating cheeseburgers. But it is great, because I don’t know what kind of shape I would be in if I wasn’t an actor,” Butler said in a statement.
“It is a great thing to put these things in front of you learning to fight, learning to trim you body,” he added.
What when he isn’t shooting?
To that, he said: “Oh crap, I try. But every time I say to myself I will stay fit this time, it just doesn’t happen.”
Butler will next be seen in the action thriller film “London Has Fallen”.
The movie, a sequel to the 2013-release “Olympus Has Fallen”, centres on an attack on London during the funeral of the British prime minister, who has died under mysterious circumstances.
Directed by Babak Najafi, “London Has Fallen” will hit Indian screens on March 4 by Panorama Studios.
