In a recent interview with Vogue, Madden spoke about stripping off for his craft (and our pleasure):
“We’re projecting a very unrealistic body image,” Madden told the magazine. “I find myself with actor friends – after we’ve done a kind of barely eating, working-out-twice-a-day, no-carbing thing for these scenes – looking at each other going: ‘We’re just feeding this same shit that we’re against.’”
“I’ve done numerous jobs where you’re told to lose weight and get to the gym,” Madden continued, “it doesn’t just happen to women, it happens to men all the time as well.”
It’s unknown whether Madden will bare more in the surely over-hyped gay sex scenes of Rocketman, or not. Well, for what it’s worth: he looks great for it!
