His work capability was so massive. “He bulks up and he is consuming eight meals a day for Thor, then everybody’s like, ‘Oh god, we’d like you lean for Extraction [2], as a result of that character’s a bit extra [athletic].’ So he just stopped consuming a lot, after which set off working half marathons to drop weight.
