Super-well-paid actor Sam Claflin has been fat-shamed on movie sets! He complains that he’s expected to be in top shape in order to play shirts-off movie roles. My God — the unfairness of it all!
An excerpt from the article in the NYDaily News:
“He underwent a similar transition in 2013 for Catching Fire:
“From the moment I set foot in Atlanta, they had me at the gym, working out twice a day. And then stunt training, it's nonstop.” As for my diet, I think I've eaten more chickens than there are in the world. I would eat chicken and asparagus for lunch and dinner, and for breakfast I'd have an omelet and oatmeal. And I had that every day for four months. I've talked to my friends and said, ‘Oh my God, I'm so depressed, I just want a burger.’ And they're like, ‘You don't know how lucky you are to be doing what you are doing.’”
Better listen to your friends, Sam. There’s a whole line of better-built uncomplaining guys just itching to take your place.
