Zac Efron Says: ‘I Didn’t Recognise Myself’ As He Talks About gaining 18lbs Of Muscle For Lead Role In The Lucky One
Zac Efron has said that he didn’t recognise himself after putting on 18lbs of muscle for his new movie.
Zac admitted that he was impressed with his own willpower while bulking up during the film.
He said to Men’s Health magazine:
‘By the end of the movie I didn’t recognise myself. You hear about guys like Christian Bale who dive into it and are really able to transform.
‘I’ve always wondered if I had the willpower to actually do it. And I’ll always have pride around the sense that I can.’
‘I could pick up almost anything. If you put it in front of me, I could always find a way to tackle it. [While training for The Lucky One] I’d get this strange sense of power as those weights increased. I was never a natural at anything, but I could always outwork everybody.’
