Alex Cross

Not only did Matthew Fox lose 44 pounds to play fitness obsessed serial killer, Picasso, in Alex Cross, he put on an insane amount of muscle. To achieve the extreme look, he took on a strict diet of mostly chicken, steamed broccoli and protein shakes. His exercise routine involved 90-minute circuit-training workouts every day for five months, moving nonstop from exercise to exercise during each session. “It was circuit training until I wanted to puke” Fox said of his workout routine.

He admits he didn’t enjoy the intense routine that was required to get into character. But the results made it all worth it. “It’s an empowering thing to realize just how much control we have over our bodies,” said Fox.
