lol. He was skeletal in The Machinist, it was amazing.

I love athletic men. I don't like huge bodybuilding muscles or too much emphasis on weight training though. Rowers, swimmers... That's my thing And btw I like visible tone in women too.

I thought it was pretty cool that he followed the script down to his loss. He met with the director and the guy was shocked. He just told him to get thin/sickly. I think his weight was 120? Or was it 130? Not that it really matters as the guy is 6'2''.

That second pic is from his training for Batman. Its crazy that its the same person. Really shows what the human body can do and what a difference some meat on your bones can make.

I don't know. I happen to be with you on this one. I'm attracted neither to too much muscles nor to men married to the gym. I do like "some" muscle, of course, but if it's achieved by practically living in a gym, no, thanks. I’ll happily take love handles and a little belly over this crapola any day!

One thing I have noticed is that, females at the gym give a lot of attention to muscular guys and I always catch some female watching me when I am doing my weights, even when I am not trying to impress anybody.

Hi Repubocrat,

It means you are healthy. Unhealthy men often cannot appear fit. Health, as always, is sexy.


The shocking truth.

Ditto. I'd rather a guy be fit from running or swimming or playing tennis or whatever, rather than spending hours and hours in a gym lifting heavy things for no apparent reason other than being able to lift heavy things at the gym.

I'm really not sure what you're getting at here, Repubocrat. You're saying in one breath that you're trying to achieve "muscular" status, then in the next you're calling the muscular men a bunch of self-centered, possibly gay, douchebags. (and the pathetic name-calling is very childish, FYI....who cares if they're gay?!?)

If they're so horrible then why are you trying to be just like them?!?

But there IS a reason! I don't know anybody who goes to the gym for "no reason". The goal isn't to "lift heavy things at the gym" it's to strengthen and gain muscle, as well as myriad health benefits. If one merely wanted to "lift heavy things" they'd stay home and move furniture around.

And the best/worst part of it is not little time had elapsed between both pictures. The Machinist was released in 2004 and Batman Begins in 2005. How is it possible to bring your body to the point of near-starvation (he was also muscular and super-fit in American Psycho few years before) and then back to big and fit in so little time without your body becoming seriously ill?

I'd love to know what his fitness plan was. The results were so quick it's unbelievable...

That's OK. I'm not that big of a glutton and manage on my own just fine.
