Personal Quotes
[on how did he get and maintain six pack abs for Kingsman: The Secret Service] In order to do that you have to eat so strictly in order to maintain something like that and it has to become a real lifestyle. That extreme is not one I could maintain all the time, it's a real commitment to living a certain way. You have to do a certain amount of gym hours a week and you have to be pretty militant with yourself with regards to what you eat. If we ever decide to do another Kingsman I would certainly do it again. It's fantastically enjoyable when you do do it, you feel wonderful. To see my body transform and then to have that there forever on screen is quite a nice feeling. For generations to come, we can all appreciate my abs.

[on the stats he was able to achieve for his role in Kingsman: The Secret Service] I lost a lot of fat and put on a lot of muscle. I got down to five percent body fat and 88 kilos, which is quite lean and muscle-dense. It's not something I've done before. Frankly, it's a massive, massive lifestyle choice. I'd relish the opportunity to do it again.

[on the difficulty of his transformation for Kingsman: The Secret Service] The expectations for this film were so high. But if you are playing someone who has to save the world, you do have to have a bit of muscle tone, don't you? Dropping the fat, putting on muscle ... all of that is really hard if you haven't done it before. Ultimately it's very rewarding. But you do put yourself though a lot of pain to get yourself into that kind of shape. Watching my body transform was not something I ever imagined I could do - to completely change. Locked in a vault somewhere are some before and after photos.

[on their bring a friendly bodybuilding competition on the set of Kinsman: The Secret Service] The big competition was between me and Ed Holcroft, who plays Charlie. Ed and I, despite the fact that we loathe each other in the film, are really big friends. But we - from day one - had a big competition to see who would get the biggest pecs, because we knew that we had to be topless. I think he may have got the guns, but in terms of abs and pecs I think I just pipped him to the post.
