“We’re projecting a very unrealistic body image. I find myself with actor friends–after we’ve done a kind of barely eating, working-out-twice-a-day, no-carbing thing for these scenes–looking at each other going: ‘We’re just feeding this same sh*t that we’re against.’
I’ve done numerous jobs where you’re told to lose weight and get to the gym. It doesn’t just happen to women, it happens to men all the time as well.”Richard Madden speaking to British Vogue about baring all on camera.

If you’re an actor you have the body for the role. Simple as that.
That man is just gorgeous, clothed or unclothed! Six episodes of ‘Bodyguard’ was not enough for me and I’m looking forward to season 2.
He is classically handsome, and a beautiful personality too – They killed him off to early in Games of Thrones.
Lets be real about something. Let’s look at the hypocrisy in this young man’s statements. First of all he says he is against all this gay body image & all. LOL. Then don’t work out like an addict for roles period. Plus, if this guy & his friends were out at a bar somewhere & someone 300 pounds walked up to them, this guy & his friends would not give him the time of day if every one of them was wearing a Flavor Flav clock around their necks. Please.
The penis wants what the penis wants. If you are a gay man, you should understand that no amount of conversion therapy can make the penis obey.
I don’t think you understand Hollywood. Producers of ALL shapes and sizes get lots and lots and lots of attention – like flies behind an out-house. That’s snark; but, real. Just ask my 245 pound husband.
BODYGUARD is a great show, and he was a riveting actor to watch. I had to beat off a lot because of scenes where his shirt was off, or there was a glimpse of his bare ass.
In Madden’s most recent, most famous role he played the title character in The Bodyguard, a series about an ex-army private bodyguard to the British Prime Minister. He was toned enough to (just) convince in the part, but actually nowhere near as ripped and fit as someone with that background and that occupation would be. If he seriously feels bad about presenting an “unrealistic body image”, then I suggest he make a personal statement by going back on the carbs. He’ll fairly quickly find himself replaced in the forthcoming sequel.
A small correction – in the series he was bodyguard to the Home Secretary.

Could you please stop moderating every comment I make? Most of my comments do not get printed.
Well now that Hollywood have Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans as standard bearers of fitness, many follow to get a superhero contract.
..Mr. Madden has a very potent Scottish sex appeal he can test my pipes any day!!!!
