Matt Damon Ripped for 'Elysium': PHOTO


Matt Damon is having a fine physical moment. If you missed the Elysium trailer watch it here.

Entertainment Weekly:

In order to play him, the actor had to beef up. “We wanted him to look a certain way so I had to keep up a workout regimen,” says Damon. This was made even more necessary by the addition of the “hulk-suit,” an technologically advanced exoskeleton that makes Damon’s character stronger and faster. While the rig is meant to enhance Max’s physical capabilities, in real life, it meant Damon had to work out even more. “It’s kind of like wearing one of those old Bo Jackson weight vests,” says Damon. “It’s really insidious trying to carry extra weight even if you’re in shape. You just really need a pretty strong core or you can get injured pretty easily, particularly at my age.”

Certainly didn't hurt his look for the new Liberace film either.

  2. I don't know, I kinda like a slightly doughier Matt Damon. But I'll watch him in anything. He's great.

  4. Matt has always maintained a pretty nice body. I particularly appreciated his physique in "The Talented Mr. Ripley"... that speedo! :D

  7. This is too much of a meth tweaker look for me. He needs to add some weight and muscle mass.

  10. What stood out to me most in the article is where Matt Damon actually said 'at my age' as though; 42 is somehow old. Clearly he has been brainwashed as most people have into believing once you hit 30 you are old. I guess if you plan on living only till about 65 then sure. But the human body, if taken care of, has the capacity to live upward of 125 years in age.

  11. Who says gay people can't carry a film to blockbuster status?

  12. "We wanted him to look a certain way so I had to keep up a workout regimen."

    Translation: We were making another badly written, meaningless, derivative exploding helicopter movie full of sound and fury signifying profit, and understand that abs are the new cleavage.

    Oh well. Maybe it'll convert some teenage boys to the homosexual lifestyle and inspire their fundamentalist parents to throw themselves off a megachurch. Every cloud of hot air has its silver lining.
