Koomikon hurja muodonmuutos – treenasi huippukuntoon Marvel-roolia varten

Viihdeuutiset · Tim Isokivi

Koomikko ja näyttelijä Kumail Nanjiani tunnetaan muun muassa keskeisestä roolistaan HBO:n Silicon Valley -sarjassa. Nyt tähti on aiheuttanut hämmästystä melkoisella muodonmuutoksellaan.

Nanjiani paljasti Instagramissa treenanneensa itsensä huippukuntoon Marvelin tulevaa The Eternals-elokuvaa varten. Tähden mukaan muodonmuutos olisi tuskin onnistunut ilman Disneyn palkkaamia valmentajia ja ravintoterapeutteja.

– Olen onnellinen näyttäessäni tältä mutta ymmärrän myös, miksi en ollut tällainen aikaisemmin. Se olisi ollut mahdotonta ilman käytössäni olleita resursseja ja aikaa, Nanjiani kirjoitti.

Pakistanilaissyntyinen ja nykyään Yhdysvalloissa asuva Kumail Nanjiani on nähty elokuvissa ja sarjoissa kuten The Big Sick, Men in Black: International ja Salaiset kansiot. Marvelin The Eternals -elokuva saa ensi-iltansa marraskuussa 2020.

I never thought I’d be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I’ve worked way too hard for way too long so here we are. You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvel’s Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked. I would not have been able to do this if I didn’t have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world. I’m glad I look like this, but I also understand why I never did before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time. So big thanks to @grantrobertsfit who started working with me at the beginning of the year and made me understand true physical pain for months and months. Then, once we started shooting, a massive thanks to @davidhigginslondon and his team (@ellispartridge, @thebeardypt, @tomcheesemanfitness) for training me almost every day and making me strong, limber and injury free. I can almost touch my toes now. (And thank you for forcing me to do cheat meals David.) Matthews Street Catering for their delicious and healthy meals. And finally, the biggest thanks goes to @emilyvgordon for putting up with me complaining and talking about only working out and dieting for the last year. I promise I’ll be interesting again some day. #thirstyshirtless (Photo by @markupson.) (edit: I left off one very important person: @lancecallahan who trained me for 6 years and helped me build the foundation I could use to do this. Thank you!)
