* Alexander Skarsgard grew incredibly ripped for ''Film/TheLegendOfTarzan'' in a test of endurance ([[http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/legend-tarzan-star-alexander-skarsgard-talks-iconic-role/story?id=40250461 "8 months of training, a very strict diet (...) And it drove me a bit crazy.]]). Once filming ended, [[https://uk.news.yahoo.com/alexander-skarsgard-gives-tarzan-diet-093500380.html he gleefully ate a huge pie production baked for him and spent a whole weekend eating everything his father could cook.]]



** Many characters forced their portrayers to endure long and complicated make-up sessions, such as Mystique (Rebecca Romijn even had yellow lenses in ''Film/XMen1'', and Creator/JenniferLawrence had to reduce her make-up to just the head as she injured her body removing the prostethics in ''Film/XMenFirstClass''), Nightcrawler (enough for Alan Cumming to pass on returning; Kodi Smit-McPhee even had to wear a tail), Beast (both Creator/KelseyGrammer - [[AwesomeDearBoy who still liked the character enough]] to return in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' - and Nicholas Hoult), Azazel (a [[Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen third]] [[Film/ClashOfTheTitans2010 prosthetics-heavy role]] for Jason Flemyng) and Juggernaut (Vinnie Jones in a muscle suit).

To play [[Comicbook/{{Apocalypse}} the title villain]] of ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', Oscar Isaac had to wear a lot of make-up and a heavy costume, which the humid Montreal weather made even more unbearable.

* Linda Hamilton trained hard and put on a good deal of muscle to portray a physical, combat-obsessed Sarah Connor in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' and even learned to pick locks just so that she could do it for real on camera.

* Creator/VincentDOnofrio put on thirty pounds to play the villainous Wilson Fisk (Kingpin) in ''Series/{{Daredevil}}''.



** The practice is also a bit of FridgeHorror when you consider that for many boys who underwent "the operation," other factors--ranging from the occasionally-lethal doses of opium administered to block the pain of the procedure to simple "your voice isn't good enough"--prevented them from actually singing upon reaching adulthood. Add in since that doctors were in short supply in the country, the castration was often done by ''pig farmers'', who had to castrate their own animals frequently.

* Creator/HenryCavill as Franchise/{{Superman}} in Film/ManOfSteel gave Chris Hemsworth a run for his money in the bulking-up department, to the point that he's easily the most muscular live-action Superman to date. He had to lose some of the extra muscle for ''The Cold Light of Day'' and later for Film/TheManFromUncle2015, and then built himself back to Man of Steel shape and then some for Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice.

The latter also had Creator/BenAffleck growing incredibly bulky to play the Dark Knight, because he needed a physique that would make him even more imposing than Cavill's Superman!



* Creator/JaredLeto resorted to fairly {{squick}}y methods (like drinking melted Haagen Dazs ice cream laced with olive oil and soy sauce) to gain the extra 62 pounds he needed to play John Lennon's killer Mark David Chapman in the film ''Chapter 27''. Years later, Leto lost 30 pounds to play an HIV-positive transgender woman in ''Film/DallasBuyersClub''.

** Creator/KelseyGrammer's makeup as Beast, and Vinnie Jones in a muscle suit for Juggernaut in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand''. Cameron Bright also had to shave his hair daily, and pass makeup on the scalp (as Leech had to look more like a chemotherapy survivor than a shaven kid).

** Also on the Universe, ''Film/SuicideSquad2016'' had plenty of it. Besides the above mentioned Jared Leto, Will Smith shaved his hair and trained with firearms; Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje went through a five hour make-up process; and the most complicated, Creator/MargotRobbie had to practice gymnastics and shooting firearms (and acknowledged she "didn't have the physical strength to allow myself to do those things, even the gun training."), endured a three hour make-up process that made her skin white and covered in tattoos, and an [[ExposedToTheElements impractical]] {{Stripperiffic}} outfit with [[CombatStilettos stiletto gym shoes]].

** For ''Film/RamboFirstBloodPartII'', he trained for eight months prior to the films start date in late 1984, but he maintained a strict regimen during shooting as well. He would begin with a two- to three-hour morning workout, then hed move on to the 10- to 12-hour shooting day on the movie. After that, instead of going home like the rest of the cast and crew, hed cap off the day with another two- to three-hour workout. After six hours of sleep or so hed be up and ready to do it all again.
