Everyone’s in a frenzy about Matt Damon’s new look for his role as Max in the science fiction film “Elysium!”
Speaking with People Magazine, the actor explained how he got in shape for the film — a process he found especially trying. “It was really hard because I love to eat and drink!” he said. “It’s very hard to motivate me to get in shape. It was all about the workout.”
In addition to a special diet, Damon hit the gym for four hours each day, lifting weights and doing cardio.
The Film: Set in the year 2154, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds. Co-produced and directed by Neill Blomkamp and starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster.
