‘Muriel’s Wedding’ Hunk Recalls Getting Tanned And Waxed For Hit Film 20 Years Ago

DLMy God, did I have to get in shape. Back then, no actors went to the gym. It wasn’t cool. I had to play a champion Olympic swimmer and here I was this pasty, scrawny drama student. I had to get waxed and spray tanned and go on a very specific diet. I had to work my ass off – literally. And being the lazy actor I am, when filming ended I stopped going to the gym…but I kept eating the same diet. So very quickly my body changed again, and it wasn’t for the better, let me tell you.”

      “Back then, no actors went to the gym.”

      That’s BS. Were only talking 1994. I’ll bet you can find more muscled hunk actors during that time then you can shake a tree at.

      Btw. he still looked scrawny. I’ll give him the tanned look though.

      Maybe it was different in Australia. Although Russell Crowe was pretty beefy in “Sum of Us”
