The actor may be in his 40s but he surely still got the manly physique he’s been known for. Being an actor, it’s not new for him to undergo physical training in order to prepare for his characters. In general though, he observes an active lifestyle by following a workout routine that not only keeps him buff but strong and agile as well. In interview, he got candid about one of the trainings he did for a film role. For example, he trained hard to prepare for his role in the movie Total Recall. Talking about it, he said:
“I did a two-mile jog every day, an hour of weights, every day, six days a week, for about three months before we started. And I’m somebody who a couple of years ago couldn’t even run a mile.” On the other hand, he also confessed that he didn’t always stick to a healthy lifestyle. “I don’t put the same level of energy into healthy living as I did into unhealthy living,” he was noted for saying.
