Featured Article: Liam Hemsworth for Men’s Health US May 2020


The actor shares how he’s transitioning into his 30s, after his 20s ended with his house burning down, surgery for a kidney stone, and the tabloids descending on his personal life. But with a new streaming series on QuibiMost Dangerous Game – and training plan, the Aussie is feeling stronger than ever.

On the lessons from his 20s that he’s excited to bring into his 30s:
“Appreciating the little things. It’s something I always try to remind myself to do, especially in times that maybe things aren’t going the way I planned or the way I wanted things to go. Appreciating what I do have and searching for things that make me happy and things that make me a better person…”

On what he’s found during that search:
“Honestly, the past six months…I’d say exercise and fitness is a big thing for me to just feel balanced and levelheaded. I went into a job [Most Dangerous Game] at the end of last year that was extremely physical. I spent most of the project running and getting beaten up. It was just brutal. I leaned out a lot. Running is so jarring. Your knees, your ankles, your lower back. After that I teamed up with Jason Walsh, who owns Rise Nation in West Hollywood. We do high-intensity stuff, a mix of calisthenics, sled pulls, sled pushes, and lots and lots of free weights.”

On looking up to older brother Chris Hemsworth:
“I really look up to my brother Chris. I’ve worked with a lot of people that have been in really great positions in the past 11 years, and Chris has a stronger work ethic than most. He’s so focused. I’m thankful that I have him and am able to use his resources and his knowledge. I call him all the time
about scripts and get his opinion. ‘Should I do this? Should I do that?’ We’re looking to do a film this year together, which is like a big action-comedy thing.” Image courtesy of The Riker Brothers for Men’s Health. (source)


Featured Article: Kumail Nanjiani for Men’s Health US April 2020


Kumail Nanjiani shocked the internet last year when he revealed photos of a major body transformation leading up to his starring role in The Eternals. Now, the 41-year-old actor and writer covers the April 2020 issue of Men’s Health US, on stands March 17th.

On becoming part of the Marvel universe like fellow comedians Chris Pratt and Paul Rudd, which included turning down supporting parts in other comic-book projects: “It was a pipe dream, but I was very strategic about it. I was like, ‘I don’t want to be just part of the Marvel movie; I want to be a Marvel superhero.’”

Emily V. Gordon on reactions after Kumail shared photos of his new body with the world: “Half the messages I got that day were from people being like, ‘Hey, I want to have sex with your husband, and the other half were from people making sure I was okay with my husband’s naked body being everywhere. It took a very private thing from our lives and made it incredibly public. And all I could be was really proud, because he looked amazing.”

On reframing his workout philosophy, after initially dreading the 1-hour drive to his Beverly Hills gym and the intense fitness regimen responsible for his The Eternals body: “Today, I drove to that gym and five minutes into my workout, my mood brightened. I love it.”

On his own mixed personal feelings after going public with his new physique: “I don’t want to discount people who genuinely have debilitating body issues. I don’t have that. But I did start getting some body dysmorphia. I’d look in the mirror and I’d see my abs – and when I looked again, they would fade. I would just see the flaws.”

On how Instagram and comments from fans helped him to go easier on himself: “When I saw that reaction was when I was like, ‘Okay, I clearly don’t see what’s actually there.’ It’s something I’m trying to be aware of and be better at, because that’s not a good way to be. You want to be easy on yourself.” Images courtesy of Emily Shur for Men’s Health. (source)
