How Much Did Alexander Skarsgard Eat To Prepare For Tarzan?
Alexander Skarsgard had to eat a whopping 7,000 calories a day to play Tarzan
That's a lot
Actors have taken on some crazy diets to get in certain shape for a role. Matthew McConaughey lost some serious weight forThe Dallas Buyer’s Club. Kirsten Dunst gained some forFargo. And when you hit the theater this weekend to seeThe Legend of Tarzan, you’ll be wondering just how Alexander Skarsgard got his perfectly chiselled eight-pack abs.
To play the title character, Skarsgard adopted a strict regimen of working out and eating — a lot. For three months prior to filming, he lifted heavy weights and consumed 7,000 calories a day. For reference, that’s three times his normal intake, or seven pints of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Then, once he was on set, he also eliminated sugar, gluten, wheat, dairy, and alcohol from his diet. For six. Whole. Months.
After filming was over, Skarsgard says he binged on the foods he missed, like carbs.
‘I spent four days just in bed, being fed by Dad’ he toldEntertainment Weekly. ‘He cooked these pastas with rich sauces and bone marrow and fried mozzarella and tons of beer and wine. It was the most incredible weekend of my life.’
