Hunnam took time with Men’s Health to talk about how he bulked up for the role, his eye of the tiger life philosophy, and why those shirtless pics of him will never go away.
In Triple Frontier you’re playing a former Special Forces soldier, and you worked a lot with a SEAL trainer.
From living in Hollywood and being exposed a lot to the people of the film industry, I found the attitude of those Special Forces guys to be really, really refreshing.
You mentioned once when you were working on Sons of Anarchy feeling you looked too much like a “gym guy,” instead of a Special Forces guy whose physicality is all about functionality rather than just showing it off.
Specific to this experience I read a lot of Sebastian Junger; I read Tribe a couple of times, which I think is an exceptional book.
