James McAvoy has got himself absolutely ripped for his latest film
James McAvoy has undergone quite the transformation.
The Scottish actor was recently spotted out in Philadelphia during a break from filming new movie, Glass - sequel to Split - in which he will reprise his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb.
As well as sporting a buzz cut hairstyle, McAvoy was clearly showing the results of some serious hard work in the gym and the images have been widely shared across social media in the time since.
In preparation for his role in the film, the 38-year-old recently told Mr Porter that he'd chosen not to work with a personal trainer, instead searching for workout plans online and significantly upping his calorie intake.
“I Googled, ‘Good way to put on muscle quick’ then went to a gym and did it myself," he explained.
“I also ate between 5,000 and 6,000 calories a day. Instead of eating two eggs in the morning, I’d eat eight.
“Then a snack of chicken breast. Then two chicken breasts for lunch and a steak for another snack. Then two salmon steaks for dinner.
“In a relatively short space of time, I got bigger. I wasn’t huge but I was quite chuffed with myself.”
