  1. you have a wicked set of abs and…
  2. a set of pecs that would make Kate Upton jealous.

Seriously, if you’re looking for some motivation to help you hitting the gym and sticking to your diet, check out these amazing Hollywood physique transformations achieved by some of today’s biggest male movie stars…

 1.  Christian Bale

Unfortunately, Batman director Christopher Nolan felt Bale had bulked up too much and had him drop 20 of the 100 pounds he had just gained.

Keep that in mind next time you need to drop (or gain) 5 lbs.

    I really respect how deep some of them get into character. My question is from a health standpoint, are there any effects, maybe as they get to middle age, on their overall health specially for those who transform so drastically.

    didn’t expect to see Michael Chiklis’ name on this list…but seriously…

    I have the utmost respect for all these actors and others that are able to transform themsleves like this, but one thing I often say to friends and family members who I disuss fitness/fat loss with: these actors are being paid-usually milliions of dollars-to make these transformations…also, I have ZERO doubt that at least half of them are using some combination of steroids/GH/???
