How Matt Damon Beefed Up For His Role In ‘Elysium’
If you’ve seen Matt Damon lately, you might’ve noticed a few extra bulges in his arms … that’s because the star recently beefed up for his new role in, Elysium.
HipHollywood caught up with the star to talk about his new Sci-Fi flick, and of course, his new body.
“I just changed the texture of the beef, better grade of beef,” Damon laughed. “I basically didn’t allow myself to eat certain things, and then trained very, very hard,” the actor shared.
Matt plays a young, rugged man who has one motive. “He’s a guy who grew up in an orphanage. He always grew up aspiring to get to Elysium, which is the space station that hovers over earth, and all the rich people live there,” Damon explained.
“Like any Science Fiction movie, it takes place in the distant future, or a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. But it’s really talking about today and the world we are living in,” he added.
“The one thing people are worried about is the increasing gap of the haves and the have nots, and this movie is taking it to the extreme where the haves have now moved to a space station,” Matt said.
Elysium hits theaters August 9.
