“After we do the boxing scenes, I get to put on as much weight as possible over the course of the film, so I’m challenging myself to put on 30 pounds in the next six weeks…they want me to do it as healthy as possible and I’m like ‘Dude, I’ve been on such a regimen for so long, I just want to eat everything in sight…I want to go to bakeries. I want to go to Denny’s. I want to get pancakes. I want to get everything I can possibly get my hands on,” he said.


Despite the need to gain weight for the role, he did tell Ellen DeGeneres that he has started to wake up at 2:30 a.m. to exercise just to fit it into his busy schedule.
