Bodyguard and Rocketman star Richard Madden is speaking out about appearing nude on screen and expectations for Hollywood actors.
Said Madden to British Vogue: “We’re projecting a very unrealistic body image. I find myself with actor friends – after we’ve done a kind of barely eating, working-out-twice-a-day, no-carbing thing for these scenes – looking at each other going: ‘We’re just feeding this same shit that we’re against.'”
He added: “I’ve done numerous jobs where you’re told to lose weight and get to the gym. It doesn’t just happen to women, it happens to men all the time as well.”
