10 Actors who Got Huge For Movie Roles

Chris Evans

The athletic Evans worked out pretty hard for his first superhero stint in the Fantastic Four franchise, but when you compare his physique to the supernaturally swollen one he had to accrue for Captain America, there’s no contest.

“I don’t think my body is supposed to be as big as it got for Captain America,” he later told Men’s Health. “There was a strain on some joints. After a month and a half of training I found my right shoulder would click and my left pec would hurt.” Perhaps it’s no coincidence, then, that Evans kept his shirt on for Captain America’s two subsequent film appearances.
