The cast and crew of Pain and Gain stunned on the gray carpet Monday night at the Los Angeles premiere of the action film.
HipHollywood caught up with Anthony Mackie, who stars in the film, to talk about what he did to beef up for his role as a body builder. “Turkey and beef six times a day with sweet potatoes as my carbs, and vegetables. I did two-a-days: cardio and light weights in the morning, and heavy weights in the evening for three months,” the 34-year-old shared.
HH also caught up with Mark Wahlberg, who plays alongside Mackie and Dwayne Johnson, to talk about why the movie is so unique. “It’s the most original movie you’ve seen in quite some time. It’s rare that a movie can blend comedy, action, suspense and drama like this,” Wahlberg raved.
Pain and Gain, directed by Michael Bay, is a true story based on a group of personal trainers in 1990s Miami who get caught involved in a criminal enterprise.
The film hits theaters April 26th.
