Charlie Hunnam had to put lots of muscles on his body for his last three movies, including the ones he’s promoting now, The Lost City Of Z. Charlie talked to Men’s Health about how he got so ripped, and he said he did it by quitting weed, working out a lot (duh) and pretty much existing on the model diet (coffee and cigarettes). Charlie does it all when it comes to work out stuff, and one of the exercise techniques he counts on the most to keep his body hot is fucking.
“I’m interested in having a high fitness level across the board,” he says. “Running, swimming, jumping rope, hiking, jiu-jitsu—I try to do it all. I also try to make love as often as I can. That’s an important part of fitness. There’s no reason you can’t be active at 70. I want to run up mountains at that age.”
Charlie also says that working out helps with depression and that he pumps his way to happiness.
“We are supposed to be very active animals. It’s our DNA.” Hunnam derives emotional stability and clarity from his fitness. “Sweating is how I change my oil every day. I just feel happier, more positive, energized, and disciplined if I work out.” Ultimately, he says, “I train a lot every day because I’m fucking crazy.”
“Sweating is how I change my oil every day.” That’s more sex talk, right? He’s talking about busting one, right?
Charlie seems to know a lot about working out, so if the whole Hollywood thing doesn’t work out for him, he can always be a personal trainer. But he should be warned, every one of his clients would show up naked and lubed-up from neck to toe and the first words out of their mouths would be: “I’m ready, Trainer Charlie, but I already ran, swam, jump rope, hiked and did jiu-jitsu today, so we can skip right to the making love exercise.”
And Charlie Hunnam having sex doesn’t only burn calories for Charlie Hunnam. I’m sure that anybody who watched his bare ass in motion in Sons of Anarchy burned at least a few calories from hand cardio.
