Noah Centineo is taking on the mantle of a superhero and he’s sharing what it takes to be one — all 6,000 calories to be exact.
The To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You star is taking a pause from his romantic comedy roles to bring one of the most iconic comic book heroes to life on the big screen. Fans will see their favorite heartthrob as He-Man in the forthcoming Masters of the Universe movie.
He-Man is known for his superhuman strength which is why Centineo is hitting the gym and packing on the muscle to bulk up.
“It’s a lot of eating,” he said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “You would think it’s awesome but it’s like, 6,000 calories a day.”
“As a person, you’re supposed to eat like, 2,000 calories a day.” he continued, putting things to perspective. “It’s great, I’m not complaining, but, you know, if I’m honest, I eat so many eggs.”
Centineo is just one of the actors who have had to gain some serious muscle for a superhero role. Recently, comedian Kumail Nanjiani caused an internet firestorm when he released photos of himself all beefed up for Marvel’s The Eternals movie.
More details about the upcoming Masters of the Universe flick has been kept under wraps. But while fans are waiting, they can watch 2018’s internet boyfriend sweep Lara Jean Covey off her feet in the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel coming this February. Centineo will be reprising his role as the ever-charming Peter Kavinsky.
